AWS achieves FedRAMP JAB High and Moderate Provisional Authorization across 14 Services in the AWS US East/West and GovCloud Regions
Since I launched our FedRAMP program way back in 2013, it has always excited me to talk about how we’re continually expanding the scope of our compliance programs because that means you’re able to use more of our services for sensitive and regulated workloads. Up to this point, we’ve had 22 services in our US East/West Regions under FedRAMP Moderate and 21 services in our GovCloud Region under FedRAMP High.
Today, I’m happy tell you about the latest expansion of our FedRAMP program, which makes for a 64% overall increase in FedRAMP covered services. We’ve achieved JAB authorizations for an additional 14 FedRAMP Moderate services in our US East/West Regions and three of those services also received FedRAMP High in our GovCloud Region. Check out the services below. All the services are available in the US East/West Regions, and the services with asterisks are also available in GovCloud.

You can now see our updated list of authorizations on the FedRAMP Marketplace. We also list all of our services in scope by compliance program on our site. As always, our FedRAMP assessment was completed with a third-party assessment partner to ensure an independent validation of our technical, management, and operational security controls against the FedRAMP baselines.
Our customer obsession starts with you. It’s been a personal goal of mine, and a point of direct feedback from you, to accelerate the pace at which we’re onboarding services into all of our compliance programs, not just FedRAMP. So, we’ll continue to work with you and with regulatory and compliance bodies around the world to ensure that we’re raising the bar on your security and compliance needs and continually earning the trust you place in us.
