Are you joining the containers revolution? Start leveraging container management using Platform9's ultimate guide to Kubernetes deployment.

 Amazon Cognito is a backend service that simplifies user identity and data sync services for a variety of applications--and it fits right into the hefty portfolio of cloud services that Amazon already has under its umbrella. It allows users to access identity data from multiple mobile devices through cloud connectivity--and even allows users to access some of that data offline using on-device storage. It does all this security by managing authorization, but can still allow unauthorized guests when necessary.

Cognito brings a level of security and backend management that will make handling user identity a lot easier for a lot of developers and small enterprises. See a bit about how it works:


There's plenty of benefits to using Amazon Cognito, including:
  • Manage unique identities
  • Work offline
  • Store and sync data across devices
  • Seamless guest access
  • Safeguard AWS credentials
  • Control access to AWS resources
