AWS achieves GSMA security certification for US East (Ohio) Region

We continue to expand the scope of our assurance programs at Amazon Web Services (AWS) and are pleased to announce that our US East (Ohio) Region (us-east-2) is now certified by the GSM Association (GSMA) under its Security Accreditation Scheme Subscription Management (SAS-SM) with scope Data Center Operations and Management (DCOM). This alignment with GSMA requirements demonstrates our continuous commitment to adhere to the heightened expectations for cloud service providers. AWS customers who provide embedded Universal Integrated Circuit Card (eUICC) for mobile devices can run their remote provisioning applications with confidence in the AWS Cloud in the GSMA-certified US East (Ohio) Region.

As of this writing, 128 services offered in the US East (Ohio) Region are in scope of this certification. For up-to-date information, including when additional services are added, see the AWS Services in Scope by Compliance Program and choose GSMA.

AWS was evaluated by independent third-party auditors chosen by GSMA. The Certificate of Compliance illustrating the AWS GSMA compliance status is available on the GSMA website and through AWS Artifact. AWS Artifact is a self-service portal for on-demand access to AWS compliance reports. Sign in to AWS Artifact in the AWS Management Console, or learn more at Getting Started with AWS Artifact.
