Amazon CloudWatch now supports AWS PrivateLink in the AWS GovCloud (US) Regions. This allows you to privately connect to CloudWatch Metrics and Logs, securely on the AWS network. AWS PrivateLink allows you to privately access services hosted on AWS in a highly available and scalable manner, without using public IPs and without requiring the traffic to traverse the internet.

You can learn more about PrivateLink here. To find more information about how to create a VPC endpoint, please visit the documentation on using CloudWatch Logs or using CloudWatch metrics with interface VPC endpoints.
