The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) plays an invaluable role in preserving our country’s heritage. NARA holds custody of and provides access to the public records that trace the story of our nation, government, and the American people. As a result, the institution deals with vast amounts of data every day.
When NARA needed help improving record and email management throughout their organization, they implemented Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud solutions. However, a critical challenge soon emerged: dealing with a sprawling AWS footprint that decentralized access and put them at risk of non-compliance with federal cybersecurity standards.
NARA turned to ECS, an AWS Audited Managed Services Provider (MSP) and Premier Consulting Partner. The challenge: developing a centralized cloud governance and security solution, providing visibility into NARA’s AWS accounts, and ensuring compliance.
