AWS Marketplace launched in AWS Secret Region
On January 26, Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced the launch of AWS Marketplace in the AWS Secret Region, an expansion of the AWS Marketplace for the U.S. Intelligence Community (ICMP) program.
ICMP is a digital catalog with software listings from independent software vendors (ISVs) that enables customers in the IC to find, test, buy, and deploy software that runs on AWS. IC customers now have access to 30 ISVs and 170 products in the AWS Secret Region, an air-gapped cloud accredited to support workloads up to the Secret US security classification level, according to AWS.
Categories within the ICMP catalog include security, networking, databases, data management, artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML), operating systems, DevOps, and business applications. ICMP also features a government-approved list of value-added resellers and AWS channel partners in ICMP that can be used to procure third-party software products in the AWS Secret Region.
AWS scans, tests, and verifies that all products work in the AWS Secret Region before listing them in ICMP. For classified deployments, all ICMP ISVs must be vetted for foreign ownership control and influence by the government prior to beginning contract performance.
