Amazon today has announced what the company refers to as the “Secret Region” in its AWS cloud infrastructure. The Secret Region is dedicated to providing the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) and non-IC U.S. Government customers with appropriate Secret-level network access and their own contract vehicles for use of the AWS Secret Region.
With the launch of this new Secret Region, AWS becomes the first and only commercial cloud provider to offer regions to serve government workloads across the full range of data classifications, including Unclassified, Sensitive, Secret, and Top Secret.
