[RELEASE] Introducing database-level encryption for AWS clusters - 1 May 2024

ScyllaDB Cloud now offers sensitive data protection by enabling database-level encryption for AWS based database clusters. This encryption is on top of the existing storage-based encryption.When creating a new cluster, users can enable database-level encryption by either creating a key via their own AWS KMS account (available in our Premium tier offering), or by using a ScyllaDB-managed key.

  • Data is protected from unauthorized access.
  • All data in backup files is also encrypted and protected.
  • Access to encryption keys and data requires different levels of authorization.

For more information, see our documentation.
