We assign a health status to your S3 storage buckets based on our security recommendations.

You can filter your S3 storage buckets by health status, including those with acknowledged health, and by AWS region.

Note The buckets with a bad health status are listed first on the page. Health status is indicated in the first column.

You can acknowledge settings with bad health status to prevent them influencing the health status for the bucket. Buckets with acknowledged settings are given an acknowledged health status.

The S3 storage buckets are listed with their settings and an indicator of whether the setting complies with our security recommendations:

  • Name
  • AWS region
  • AWS account
  • Default encryption
  • Versioning
  • Access control list (public access)
  • Bucket policy
  • CloudTrail logging
