AWS DataSync now provides additional security options when moving data to and from Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS). AWS DataSync is an online data movement service that simplifies, automates, and accelerates moving data between on-premises, edge, or cloud storage and AWS Storage services. Amazon EFS is a serverless, fully elastic file system that makes it easy to set up, scale, and cost-optimize file storage in the AWS Cloud. With this launch, DataSync can now access your file systems using EFS Access Points, enabling you to copy data to and from specific datasets. You can also configure DataSync to connect to your EFS file systems using TLS encryption, giving you greater protection of your data in-flight when copying to and from EFS. Additionally, you can configure DataSync with an IAM role for use with your EFS file system policies, giving you greater control over how DataSync accesses your file systems.
