AWS C2S Consulting for Government Agencies
Intelligence and defense contractors trusted with some of the country’s most high-level national security secrets require advanced cloud-based computing platforms. At the same time, however, additional security measures can not come at the expense of productivity or to the detriment of innovation. It is for this reason that Amazon Web Services (AWS) launched its GovCloud Commercial Cloud Service (C2S) platform.
What Makes AWS GovCloud Different?
GovCloud is isolated from other Amazon Web Service regions and run entirely by vetted “U.S. Persons” as defined by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. It is used to host sensitive data and regulated workloads, in accordance with the following regulatory standards:
- International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)
- Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP)
Even if your organization is not subject to either of the above regulations, the enhanced security of AWS GovCloud can help you manage risk and position yourself for compliance with future requirements. As a result, it is an effective platform for software development and big data analytics for defense contractors, security contractors and other related IC agencies.
GovCloud provides a secure way for contractors to enjoy the many benefits of the cloud. GovCloud gives you a platform for building advanced, scalable applications in the cloud, allowing you to speed up the project lifecycle and foster improved communication and collaboration between development and operations staff. It also simplifies testing and makes it easier to incorporate feedback sooner, leading to more effective products and lower overhead costs.
Migrating Enterprise Data to GovCloud
There is currently a major push to move defense contractors into the cloud. While AWS GovCloud is an important step in making the move safer and simpler, there are some things you need to know before beginning the migration process. Larger organizations, in particular, may struggle to manage the process efficiently. Bridging the gap between on-premises and cloud-based data storage will be simpler if your organization is streamlined and secure to begin with. Working with an experienced AWS GovCloud consultant is one of the best ways to ensure the process goes smoothly.
