It’s my pleasure to announce that we’ve expanded the number of AWS services that customers can use to run sensitive and highly regulated workloads in the federal government space. This expansion of our FedRAMP program marks a 28.6% increase in our number of FedRAMP authorizations.
Today, we’ve achieved FedRAMP authorizations for 6 services in our AWS US East/West Regions:
We also received 14 service authorizations in our AWS GovCloud (US) Regions:
- Amazon API Gateway
- Amazon CloudWatch
- Amazon CloudWatch Events
- Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR)
- Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS)
- Amazon Elastic File System
- Amazon Elasticsearch Service
- Amazon Inspector
- Amazon Polly
- AWS CodeDeploy
- AWS Config
- AWS Direct Connect
- AWS Lambda
- AWS Step Functions
In total, we now offer 48 AWS services authorized in the AWS US East/West Regions under FedRAMP Moderate and 43 services authorized in our AWS GovCloud (US) Regions under FedRamp High. You can see our full, updated list of authorizations on the FedRAMP Marketplace. We also list all of our services in scope by compliance program on our Services in Scope page.
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.
We care deeply about our customers’ needs, and compliance is my team’s priority. As we expand in the federal space, we want to continue to onboard services into the compliance programs our customers are using, such as FedRAMP.
