Amazon Web Services raises the bar on security with new and important changes for AWS and Identity and Access Management (IAM) users. The company’s Liam Wadman and Khaled Zaky announced the changes in a blog post published earlier this week, announcing that users can now add more than one multi-factor authentication (MFA) device to AWS account root users and IAM users to their AWS accounts.

Until now, only one MFA endpoint could be associated with root users or IAM users, but now Amazon has brought it up to eight, a change that “raises the security bar,” as the authors put it.
