What is AWS IAM and how does it work? AWS IAM is a user-friendly Identity and Access Management solution that allows organizations to securely monitor access to AWS resources and APIs. With the IAM module, businesses can monitor users and groups, schedule access rights to different AWS resources, and set specific conditions such as time of day or authentication factors like SSL usage, IP address, or MFA device. AWS IAM helps organizations define and customize their policies and control access to various services. Enterprises can enhance security by implementing AWS MFA, which requires employees to prove their physical possession of an MFA-token hardwire or provide a valid code through a supported mobile device. AWS IAM is also compatible with identity management solutions that support SAML2.0 and the federation samples provided by AWS Console SSO.
