Starting today, AWS Firewall Manager is available in both AWS GovCloud (US) Regions.

AWS Firewall Manager is a security management service that enables customers to centrally configure and manage firewall rules across their accounts and resources in AWS Organizations. You can use Firewall Manager to configure firewall rules and protections for AWS WAF, AWS Shield Advanced, AWS Network Firewall, VPC security groups, and Amazon Route 53 Resolver DNS Firewall. To use Firewall Manager, you first need to onboard to AWS Organizations, enable AWS Config and AWS Resource Access Manager (RAM) for your accounts, and designate an account as the Firewall Manager administrator.

With this launch, AWS Firewall Manager is now available in 22 AWS Regions. For the full list of AWS Regions where AWS Firewall Manager is available, see the AWS Regional Services page. To learn more about AWS Firewall Manager, visit the Firewall Manager website.
