AWS Framework to Help Contractors Accelerate CMMC Compliance
Amazon Web Services is undoubtedly the best platform for those working on the web. It’s an on-demand cloud-computing service provider offering a variety of services to clients and developers. Now, to help contractors accelerate CMMC compliance, AWS has launched a new platform for contractors.
AWS’ Randy Domingo and Abhi Singh said that they have launched new platform contractors to speed up the implementation process of their cloud-computing environment. The cloud-based environment needs to comply with the Department of Defense’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification program.
The team has released this information on their new blog post where they have mentioned the platform’s availability for the contractors. Amazon’s Web Services is not providing their services to common users, but also the government departments.
The AWS Compliant Framework for Federal and DoD Workloads in AWS GovCloud is there to provide a range of services to customers. This platform is dedicated to government officials who can improve their services. The same platform offers several ways on how customers can meet the CMSS requirements.
To comply with the CMSS requirements, clients can make use of different services offered by Amazon Web Services platforms. Services such as AWS Cloudformation, AWS Cloud Development Kit, and several other infrastructures are readily available for clients to implement an environment that complies with the CMSS.
AWS Cloudformation is one of the highly used services offered by AWS. This service helps organizations set up multiple resources into one stack. It makes it easier for the clients to manage their codes and resources through AWS Cloudformation. They can also convert their existing services to cloud-based services with the help of the AWS Cloudformation.
When it comes to using the AWS services, most clients aim to set up the automatic environment. The newly launched platform will help the contractors create an automated platform for creating AWS accounts. Besides this, the same infrastructure will help the clients to take care of the security services and deployment of networking infrastructure. The team has mentioned everything in their blog post.
The new platform launched by AWS would be called AWS Compliant Framework. This framework would come with a dedicated logging account for the users. This centralized logging account will make things easier for the users to collect information about different services.
Moreover, the same platform would help users make use of Amazon’s Security Services. This service aims to provide better security to protect the user’s data. Users can keep an eye on the activities using the AWS Security Services to further strengthen their organization. Better security means no worry! Users will be allowed to customize their environment to match their organization’s needs. This way they can analyze and boost their organization’s productivity.
Cloud services come with many risks and for that reason, Amazon Web Services offer AWS Security Services. This service helps clients and users to run their businesses on the platform more securely than other platforms. AWS Security Services is quite flexible and comes with better security solutions.
If we talk about what type of data this service can protect, then AWS Security Services can protect your information, web identities, devices, locations, applications, and more. It provides great security to the data centers where different types of data and information are stored. The best thing about this service is it eliminates the need for manual tasks that users’ have to perform to secure their data centers.
As soon as you start using the AWS Security Services, there will be no need for any type of manual tasks to secure your organization’s data. Just enable this service, customize it as per your organization’s needs and that’s it. The rest will be managed by this service.
What makes Amazon’s Web Services unique from other cloud-based services providers is AWS services are quite affordable. You will be charged only for the services you use. You won’t be asked to purchase a subscription package or pay fees for the services upfront, everything will be calculated well and you will be given a quote for the services that you have used. Some of the services on the AWS platform are free to use.
