Amazon Web Services Achieves FedRAMP Compliance for AWS GovCloud and All U.S. Regions


Amazon.com has received a security clearance by the U.S. government that will make it easier for federal agencies to use its cloud computing services.

Amazon.com's AWS GovCloud (U.S.) and all U.S. AWS Regions have received an Agency Authority to Operate (ATO) from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) requirements at the Moderate impact level.

FedRAMP is a U.S. government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.

The accreditation covers all AWS data centers in the United States, the company said on Tuesday.

AWS said it received its three-year clearance through the Department of Health and Human Services. The certification covers this agency and all its operational divisions which include the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institutes of Health.

"Today most government computing systems require built-to-order platforms and applications to meet government security and compliance requirements, which involve time-consuming and costly evaluations. With this FedRAMP compliance, agencies can now utilize a streamlined process from AWS when moving applications to the cloud to meet their unique business and mission requirements."

With today's announcement, all agencies have an efficient way to run their FedRAMP required workloads on AWS. Agencies can immediately request access to the AWS FedRAMP package by submitting a FedRAMP Package Access Request Form and begin moving through the authorization process to achieve an ATO using AWS.
