IAM Users Check for MFA

Two months ago, we announced Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) support for AWS IAM User accounts. Please be kindly reminded that according to Cloud Security Policy (section 3.6.1 Security in AWS), this is an obligatory condition of IAM User accounts usage.

You can find the details on MFA activation on this page.

In case you use AWS IAM Users in your automation flows, please use Orchestrator API following this manual. If your automation uses AWS facilities not supported by Orchestrator, you can use AWS CloudFormation stacks to initiate the necessary actions.

We strongly recommend to apply all the necessary settings to your AWS IAM User accounts in shortest terms. The IAM User accounts that are not set up properly by July 22, 2016, will be blocked.

Thank you for your compliance with these procedures. Together we are improving our security!
