Amazon Web Services (AWS) today announced the launch of AWS Marketplace in the AWS Secret Region, an expansion of the AWS Marketplace for the US Intelligence Community (ICMP) program. First deployed in 2016, ICMP is a digital catalog with software listings from independent software vendors (ISVs) that makes it easy for customers in the intelligence community (IC) to find, test, buy, and deploy software that runs on AWS. With this announcement, IC customers now have access to 30 ISVs and 170 products in the AWS Secret Region, an air-gapped cloud accredited to support workloads up to the Secret US security classification level.

The ICMP catalog has expanded based on feedback and requests from Department of Defense (DoD) and IC customers. Categories include security, networking, databases, data management, artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML), operating systems, DevOps, and business applications. Additionally, the catalog includes a government-approved list of value-added resellers (VARs) and AWS Channel Partners in ICMP that can be used to procure third-party software products in the AWS Secret Region.

AWS scans, tests, and verifies that all products work in the AWS Secret Region before listing them in ICMP. For classified deployments, all ICMP ISVs must be vetted for foreign ownership control and influence (FOCI) by the government prior to beginning contract performance.

The ICMP benefits customers and ISVs in several ways:

  • ICMP simplifies procurement by aligning software purchases with existing cloud contracts.
  • ICMP enables customers to purchase software with custom terms, volume pricing, and flexible payment options from ISVs or Channel Partners.
  • ICMP helps customers centralize governance, accelerate innovation, and quickly launch software or third-party data products that align with existing policies and compliance requirements.
