AWS exec talks digital transformation, the cloud and data security


The recent re:Invent 2022 conference focused on innovations in cloud solutions and digital transformation.

Security, AWS for industries, a zero extract, transform, and load future, and new chips were just some of the announcements made during the conference, all highlighted during the keynote speech by Adam Selipsky, chief executive officer of Amazon Web Services Inc.

“We are a customer-focused company that happens to be good at innovating incredible products and services for our customers,” said Leah Bibbo (pictured), vice president for product marketing and strategic communications at AWS. “The energy in the room and what Adam talked about is focused on a few great things for customers that are important for transformation.”

Bibbo spoke with theCUBE industry analyst John Furrier at the recent AWS re:Invent conference, during an exclusive broadcast on theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s livestreaming studio. They discussed AWS’ new security service, AWS for industries and more. (* Disclosure below.)

A safe and accessible cloud

When businesses move their workloads into the cloud, security is a huge factor to consider, with users wanting the best security solutions without overspending. AWS’ new Security Lake is a “game-changing” security service for those searching for that security sweet spot, according to Bibbo.

“[It] brings together an ecosystem of security data in a format that’s open so you can share data between all of these sources, and it’s going to allow folks to be able to analyze data, find threats faster, and just kind of know their security posture,” Bibbo said.

During his keynote address, Selipsky quipped “tighten your belt, come to the cloud,” referencing the cost-effectiveness of the cloud. During uncertain economic conditions, companies are looking to pull back on expenditures and are searching for the cheapest solutions — which may all be in the cloud, Bibbo explained.

“We saw this with COVID. If you move to the cloud, not only can you cut costs, but you put yourself in this position where you can continue to innovate,” she stated. “And you can be agile, and you can be prepared for whatever environment you’re in so that you know when things go bad … you can accelerate that up quickly.”
