Further Building Security Protocols Within Automatic Backup Performance Data Collection

Bellevue, WA – Bocada LLC, an award-winning IT automation company, has announced data collection using AWS IAM roles for monitoring AWS Backup. Organizations leveraging AWS’s IAM roles-based account permissions access in place of individual user credential access (IAM user) can now seamlessly automate backup monitoring and reporting across their AWS backup implementations.

This latest Bocada release supports streamlined IT operations workflows leveraging the enhanced security of IAM roles. Ideal for enterprise organizations creating many AWS accounts based on divisions, business units, technology types, or other relevant segments, IAM roles allows organizations to delegate account access with defined permissions to trusted entities without having to share long-term access keys. By automating backup data collection via IAM roles rather than IAM users, Bocada can support a broader range of cloud security models within enterprises that manage dynamic AWS environments.

According to Matt Hall, Bocada’s sales leader, introducing IAM roles-based collection supports Bocada’s mission of giving IT infrastructure managers more security tools to support centralized oversight of their entire cloud backup infrastructure. “We’ve offered automated backup monitoring and reporting across AWS Backup services for years. However, this latest feature ensures that as AWS customers adopt industry-leading security practices, our automation tools continue to seamlessly align with, and support, their data protection protocols. With no manual work required, data protection professionals get a complete picture of their backup health without compromising any vital security objectives.”

Reporting for AWS Backup using IAM roles is available to customers using Bocada 21.3.12. To learn more about Bocada’s newest feature, email us at or call +1-425-898-2400.
