AWS Secret Region expands to include 11 new services

As a follow up to our initial region availability on November 20, 2017, I’m happy to announce that we have expanded the number of accredited services available in the AWS Secret Region by an additional 11 services. We continue to be the only cloud service provider with accredited regions to address the full range of U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) data classifications, including Unclassified, Sensitive (CUI), Secret, and Top Secret.

When the region launched last November, we achieved a Provisional Authorization (PA) for Impact Level 6 (IL6) workloads from the U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), the IT combat support organization of the DoD. The PA was recently extended, allowing for continued access to the region for IL6 workloads.

The AWS Secret Region was designed and built to meet the specific security requirements of secret classified workloads for the DoD and the intelligence community. A service catalog for the region is available through your AWS Account Executive.
