Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics is now authorized as FedRAMP Moderate in US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon) and as FedRAMP High in AWS GovCloud (US-West) and AWS GovCloud (US-East).

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a US government-wide program that delivers a standard approach to the security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. FedRAMP uses the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800 series and requires cloud service providers to receive an independent security assessment conducted by a third-party assessment organization (3PAO), to ensure that authorizations are compliant with the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA). US Federal agencies and commercial customers working with the US Federal government can now utilize Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics to process streaming data in real time.

Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics makes it easier to transform and analyze streaming data in real time with Apache Flink. Apache Flink is an open source framework and engine for processing data streams. Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics reduces the complexity of building and managing Apache Flink applications. Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics for Apache Flink integrates with Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK), Amazon Kinesis Data Streams, Amazon DynamoDB Streams, Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), custom integrations, and more using built-in connectors.
