As the name suggests, AWS Config monitors and manages your AWS config(urations) to help you easily evaluate whether your service configurations match your needs and compliance requirements. It assesses, audits, and evaluates resource configuration changes of your resources to help you stay compliant to organization policies.
When AWS Config notices a configuration update, it can send out an Amazon Simple Notification Service notification to you to review or take action, as well as sending a copy of the configuration history file to an Amazon S3 bucket.
You are charged based on the number of configuration items recorded, active rule evaluations, and conformance pack evaluations.
AWS Config simplifies compliance auditing, security analysis, change management, and operational troubleshooting.
