Amazon S3 adds encryption, more security features

On Monday, Amazon announced five new security features for its Simple Storage Service (S3) to help customers store and manage their data in a more secure manner.
The new features will help customers better manage the encryption status and access permissions of their S3 buckets, according to a blog post from Jeff Barr, chief evangelist for AWS. They are now available for all S3 customers at no additional charge.
The new security options include:
1. Default encryption
2. Permission checks
3. Cross-region replication ACL overwrite
4. Cross-region replication with KMS
5. Detailed inventory report
