Encrypt Amazon RDS instances and snapshots at rest

Amazon RDS encrypted DB instances use the industry-standard AES-256 encryption algorithm to encrypt your data on the server that hosts your Amazon RDS DB instances. After your data is encrypted, Amazon RDS handles authentication of access and decryption of your data transparently with a minimal impact on performance. You don't need to modify your database client applications to use encryption.


Enabling the encryption option for your Amazon RDS DB instances is one click away



With CloudGuard Dome9 GSL tool, you can run a simple query and know in few seconds if you have in any of the AWS regions an unencrypted RDS DB

RDS should have isStorageEncrypted = 'true' and kmsKeyId
