The board issued the P-ATO approvals after it evaluated AWS' cloud service offerings against FedRAMP's high-impact level security requirements, AWS said Wednesday.

AWS said AWS CloudFormation is one of the services designed to help systems administrators and developers build, maintain and update a set of AWS resources through automation of configuration processes, while Amazon Redshift works to facilitate data analysis through the use of business intelligence tools.

Other services that secured P-ATO certifications include:

  • Amazon DynamoDB
  • Amazon EMR
  • Amazon Glacier
  • Amazon Simple Notification Service
  • Amazon Simple Queue Service
  • Amazon Simple Workflow Service
  • AWS Key Management Service

AWS GovCloud (US) is a platform designed to help agencies host regulated workloads and other sensitive data in cloud environments in compliance with FedRAMP, International Traffic in Arms Regulations and other government requirements.
