Amazon Web Services has announced its “AWS Digital Sovereignty Pledge,” allowing customers to win back control over their data.

AWS pledges to ensure that customers always have full control over the location of their data in AWS, with verifiable control over how it is accessed and the ability to encrypt it everywhere, be that in transit, at rest or in memory.

Matt Garman, AWS’s senior vice president of Sales, Marketing and Global Services, notes that giving customers control over their data has always been a priority for AWS, but with constantly shifting and evolving legal requirements, managing all of this has become increasingly complex.

In many places around the world, like in Europe, digital sovereignty policies are evolving rapidly. Customers are facing an incredible amount of complexity, and over the last 18 months, many have told us they are concerned that they will have to choose between the full power of AWS and a feature-limited sovereign cloud solution that could hamper their ability to innovate, transform, and grow. We firmly believe that customers shouldn’t have to make this choice,

Garman said.

AWS has announced that it is fully committed to building out its set of sovereignty controls and features in its cloud. Some of these features already exist, like the AWS Control Tower.

AWS also promises to make its cloud resilient against network disruptions and natural disasters.
