Compliance Frameworks


Ensure that your S3 buckets are using Transfer Acceleration feature to increase the speed (up to 500%) of data transfers in and out of Amazon S3 using AWS edge network. S3 Transfer Acceleration feature enables fast, easy and secure transfers of files over long distances between your S3 bucket and your clients by taking advantage of AWS CloudFront's globally distributed edge locations. Once Transfer Acceleration is enabled, as soon as your S3 objects reach an edge network location, the data is routed to Amazon S3 over an optimized network path.
