Amazon Web Services helps Public Sector
organizations achieve success in the cloud.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is helping
Governments and Educational Institutions find
ways cloud services can be employed to reduce
costs, drive further research and development,
and increase innovation across the globe.
AWS provides organizations of all sizes with an infrastructure web services platform in the cloud. One of the key benefits of cloud computing is the opportunity to replace up- front capital infrastructure expenses with low variable costs that scale with your needs. With the cloud, organizations no longer need to plan for and procure servers and other IT infrastructure weeks or months in advance. Instead, they can instantly spin up hundreds or thousands of servers in minutes and deliver results faster.
AWS builds services in accordance with customer mandates and security best practices to provide end-to-end security and end-to-end privacy. AWS provides appropriate security features in those services, and documents how to use those features. AWS' compliance framework covers FISMA, PCI DSS, ISO 27001, SOC 1/SSAE 16/ISAE 3402 (formerly SAS 70 Type II), and HIPAA. For more information about the security capabilities of each service in the AWS cloud, consult the white paper "Amazon Web Services: Risk and Compliance."
Building Cloud Applications AND Meet the Latest Security Requirements

At AWS, we provide robust physical security, isolation and control at the network layer, the storage layer, and on virtual machines all familiar best practices for customers today. Many agencies have been able to improve their security posture using the AWS cloud because the ease of deploying and managing cloud infrastructure gives them greater visibility and control over their IT resources. And for more sensitive workloads, our customers have access to GovCloud, a US Government AWS region built and operated to ITAR requirements.
