1. Amazon WorkSpaces introduces Amazon WorkSpaces Web
Amazon WorkSpaces Web makes it easy for customers to safely provide their employees with access to internal websites and SaaS web applications without the administrative burden of appliances or specialized client software. WorkSpaces Web provides simple policy tools custom-built for user interactions while offloading common tasks like capacity management, scaling, and maintaining browser images. With WorkSpaces Web, corporate data never resides on remote devices. Websites are rendered in an isolated container in AWS, and pixel streamed to the user. The isolated browsing session provides an effective barrier against attacks packaged in the web content and avoids potentially compromised end-user devices from ever connecting with internal servers. Also, every session launches a fresh, always up-to-date, non-persistent web browser.
