The AWS FTR enables AWS Partners to identify and remediate risks in their products or solutions. The FTR is led by an AWS Partner Solutions Architect (PSA) who reviews AWS Partner products and solutions against a specific set of requirements based around security, reliability and operational excellence, as defined by the AWS Well-Architected Framework. As an AWS Partner, Waves can review projects against FTR requirements, adhering to best practices and ensuring the best possible customer experience.
