Amazon Neptune is now in scope for FedRAMP High in the AWS GovCloud (US-West) and AWS GovCloud (US-East) Regions, and FedRAMP Moderate in the US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (N. California), and US West (Oregon) Regions. You can now use Amazon Neptune to build applications for workloads that require FedRAMP High or Moderate authorization. This also accredits Amazon Neptune as a Department of Defense Cloud Computing Security Requirements Guide Impact Level 2 (DoD SRG IL-2) service in these regions.

Amazon Neptune is a fast, reliable, and fully managed graph database service that makes it easy to build and run applications for fraud detection, identity resolution, knowledge management, and security posture assessment using highly connected datasets. You can build applications using Apache TinkerPop Gremlin or openCypher on the Property Graph model, or using the SPARQL query language on W3C Resource Description Framework (RDF). In addition to FedRAMP compliance, Neptune also offers enterprise features such as high availability, encryption at rest and in transit, automated backups, and network isolation to help customers quickly deploy applications to production.

To get started, create your first Neptune cluster from the AWS Management Console or AWS CLI, or try out a sample graph application tutorial.
