Amazon Comprehend is a natural language processing (NLP) service that uses machine learning to analyze text documents and identify insights such as sentiment, entities, and topics in text. Amazon Comprehend now supports Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) endpoints via AWS PrivateLink so customers can securely initiate API calls to Amazon Comprehend from within your VPC and without using public IPs. AWS PrivateLink provides private connectivity between VPCs and AWS services, without ever leaving the Amazon network, while significantly simplifying your internal network architecture. You no longer need to use an Internet Gateway, Network Address Translation (NAT) devices, or firewall proxies to connect to Amazon Comprehend.  

Using AWS PrivateLink enables you to privately access Amazon Comprehend APIs from your VPC in a scalable manner by using interface VPC endpoints. A VPC endpoint is an elastic network interface in your subnet with a private IP address that serves as the entry point for all Amazon Comprehend API calls.  

AWS PrivateLink support for Amazon Comprehend is now available in all AWS regions where Amazon Comprehend is available. To try the new feature, log in to the Amazon Comprehend console for a code-free experience, or download the AWS SDK. You can also learn more about this new feature in the documentation.
