DAY2™ secures your account credentials by accessing your account through a system-generated restricted IAM role. When you onboard your AWS Account, DAY2™ creates a restricted role, only with permissions required to perform DAY2™ operations. This restricted role is created using secure AWS Well-Architected standards for cross-account access. It is not accessible by anyone including MontyCloud employees. DAY2™ does not need your AWS Credentials. Your AWS account is secure even with DAY2™ access.
