Key enhancements include:
- Greater security options and control with Customer Managed Keys (CMK)
- New AWS Graviton-based-instances to power your free tier of YugabyteDB Managed

- A small tweak to our look-and-feel as we update the platform with our new Yugabyte logo.
Embrace New Security Flexibility
It is crucial for any business-critical application to protect sensitive information, especially as businesses shift their operations to the cloud.
We understand the need for enhanced data protection and compliance with regulatory requirements, which is why we’re excited to introduce the preview of Customer Managed Key (CMK) encryption for data at rest in your YugabyteDB Managed clusters. With CMK encryption, you manage your own encryption keys, giving you the ability to encrypt your data at rest with keys that you control.
YugabyteDB Managed has a comprehensive feature set to ensure the security and privacy of your data. Adding the new Customer Managed Keys (CMK) with AWS KMS gives you complete control over the security of your data in the cloud. This is in addition to all the other benefits —global availability, scalability, reliability, cost-efficiency, and more.
*NOTE: BYOK=Bring Your Own Key
With Customer Managed Keys, you retain full control over your encryption, adding an extra layer of data security along with the volume encryption provided by your Cloud Service Provider. Encrypt your data at rest and manage the encryption keys’ lifecycle (i.e. creating, revoking, etc.), monitoring usage, and ensuring only authorized parties can access them. Mange it all with just a few clicks using our user-friendly interface, our powerful command line interface options, or via the YugabyteDB Managed API.
The Customer Managed Keys solution allows you to avoid vendor lock-in and seamlessly integrate your existing encryption procedures and key management solutions from AWS. The BYOK solution also provides a cost-effective, scalable, and secure data protection option alongside the power and scalability of YugabyteDB Managed.

A Refreshed Look and Feel
At Yugabyte, we’re constantly striving to be the cloud-native database solution of choice for all business-critical applications. With our YugabyteDB logo redesign, we’ve taken that commitment to the next level.
Our new logo incorporates three symbols perfectly capturing the essence of YugabyteDB—a data block, an infinity symbol, and an arrow pointing up and to the right (representing progress and innovation). These symbols represent the limitless potential of data, its growth and deployment in any hybrid or multi-cloud environment, and Yugabyte’s focus on movement, progress, and constant innovation.
This fresh, bold, new logo is now on the YugabyteDB Managed User Interface, serving as a constant reminder of our commitment to delivering the best possible database solution to our customers.
