AWS gets DOD's nod for 6 services at IL5
- By Gov Cloud Insider Staff
The Defense Information Systems Agency has issued provisional authorities to operate at Impact Level 5 for six Amazon Web Services GovCloud (US) services: Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, Amazon Elastic Block Storage, AWS Identity and Access Management, AWS Key Management Service, Amazon Virtual Private Cloud and Amazon Simple Storage Service.
This means that AWS’s DOD customers and partners can run workloads for controlled unclassified information exceeding IL4 and for unclassified National Security Systems.
AWS also has High Provisional Authorization from the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program that covers 18 services in the AWS GovCloud (US) region.
