AWS achieves FedRAMP P-ATO for 5 services in AWS US East/West and GovCloud (US) Regions

We’re pleased to announce that five additional AWS services have achieved provisional authorization (P-ATO) by the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Joint Authorization Board (JAB). These services provide the following capabilities for the federal government and customers with regulated workloads:

  • Enable your organization’s developers, scientists, and engineers to easily and efficiently run hundreds of thousands of batch computing jobs with AWS Batch.
  • Aggregate, organize, and prioritize your security alerts or findings from multiple AWS services using AWS Security Hub.
  • Provision, manage, and deploy public and private Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) certificates using AWS Certificate Manager.
  • Enable customers to set up and govern a new, secure, multi-account AWS environment using AWS Control Tower.
  • Provide a fully managed Kubernetes service with Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service.

The following services are now listed on the FedRAMP Marketplace and the AWS Services in Scope by Compliance Program page.

AWS US East/West Regions (FedRAMP Moderate Authorization)

Today, AWS offers 90 AWS services authorized in the AWS US East/West Regions under FedRAMP Moderate Authorization, and 76 services authorized in the AWS GovCloud (US) Regions under FedRAMP High Authorization.
