AWS achieves Spain’s ENS High certification across 105 services

September 9, 2021: Amazon Elasticsearch Service has been renamed to Amazon OpenSearch Service. See details.

AWS achieved Spain’s Esquema Nacional de Seguridad (ENS) High certification across 105 services in all AWS Regions. To successfully achieve the ENS High certification, BDO España conducted an independent audit and attested that AWS meets confidentiality, integrity, and availability standards. This provides assurance to Spain’s public sector organizations wanting to build secure applications and services on AWS.

Spain’s National Security Framework is regulated under Royal Decree 3/2010, and was developed through close collaboration between Entidad Nacional de Acreditación (ENAC), the Ministry of Finance and Public Administration, and the National Cryptologic Centre (CCN), as well as other administrative bodies.
