Development and Test

Integrate with your existing corporate infrastructure

Amazon WorkSpaces can be smoothly integrated with your on-premises environment and Microsoft Active Directory, allowing your users to continue using their corporate credentials, and your IT department to maintain existing policies and processes. When you launch a new Amazon WorkSpaces, you can choose to encrypt its volumes using AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS). AWS KMS makes it easy to create and control encryption keys and uses hardware security modules to protect the security of your keys. You can also bring your existing Windows 7 and Windows 10 Desktop licenses to Amazon WorkSpaces and run the Windows 7 and Windows 10 Desktop Operating System on hardware that is physically dedicated to you. If your organization uses multi-factor authentication, you can incorporate your existing multi-factor authentication (MFA) practice by connecting your RADIUS server with Amazon WorkSpaces for increased security.
