Last updated on February 3rd, 2023 at 5:26pm, the leading cloud governance solution, today announced availability of the solution within the Amazon Web Services (AWS) C2S and SC2S regions to support Top Secret and Secret workloads. These air-gapped AWS regions bring the benefits of the cloud – agility, speed, ease – to members of the Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community (IC).

The DoD and IC require a multi-fabric cloud strategy. Unlike other organizations, they can't just code, test, and deploy once but, rather, must go through these processes across the unclassified, classified, secret, and top-secret fabrics. With now available in these high-side AWS regions, teams will have access to account provisioning and management, compliance automation, and budget enforcement capabilities across all workloads.

View from the Field

"We have to design and deploy to support a multi-cloud architecture across different regions," said Tyler Haley, Cloud Service Provider Lead at United States Special Operations Command. “We work with a lot of vendors to support our mission and it’s key that those solutions support regions like SC2S. Automating everything in our cloud environment, including governance, is equally critical. This ensures teams can develop quickly and iteratively to meet their unique and time-sensitive application and mission needs – while still giving our cloud service provider team the right level of visibility and control. We look to solutions like to support handling these requirements across our low- and high-side cloud environments."

"Having worked to support the IC prior to leading, I’ve seen the challenges inherent in secure development and deployment," said Brian Price, CEO and co-founder of "Our team's experience and background with this community gave us unique insight into meeting requirements, and we're thrilled to be able to support these public sector agencies across all regions."

The team will be showcasing capabilities to the DoD and IC communities this week in booth 543 at the Department of Defense Intelligence Information System (DoDIIS) Worldwide Conference in Tampa and, in September, in booth 59 at the Intelligence & National Security Summit in National Harbor, MD.

USSOCOM shared more about their cloud operations and lessons learned around DevSecOps in the secret region, in this presentation at the recent AWS Public Sector Summit.
