Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) now supports message data protection, a set of capabilities that leverage pattern matching, machine learning models, and content policies to help security and engineering teams facilitate real-time data protection in their applications that use Amazon SNS to exchange high volumes of data.

With message data protection for Amazon SNS, you can discover and protect certain types of personally identifiable information (PII) and protected health information (PHI) data that is in motion between your applications. Message data protection enables topic owners to define and apply data protection policies that scan messages in real-time for sensitive data to provide detailed audit reports of findings, block message delivery, and de-identify data within a payload via redaction or masking.

Amazon SNS provides high-throughput, push-based, many-to-many messaging between distributed systems, microservices, and event-driven serverless applications. These applications include Amazon Simple Queue Service, Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose, Amazon Lambda, and HTTP/S endpoints.

Amazon SNS message data protection is available in the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD, and the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet.
