Amazon Web Services has gained certification as a Protected Cloud provider from the Australian Signals Directorate, the company said in a statement on Thursday, adding that this meant it could store data with the highest security classification in the AWS Asia Pacific (Sydney) Region.

This brings to six the number of companies certified at this level, the others being Dimension Data, Macquarie Government, Sliced Tech, Vault and Microsoft.

“The accreditation awarded to the AWS Sydney Region to run and store Protected security classification workloads in Australia is a major milestone for our existing customers and paves the way for others who may have been waiting for this certification in order to begin their cloud journey on AWS,” said Peter Moore, Asia Pacific regional managing director, Worldwide Public Sector, Amazon Web Services.

“This accreditation also generates new opportunities for our AWS Partner Network to build value-added services and solutions to serve AWS customers in the region and will inspire even more start-ups to build their businesses on AWS.”

"This provides Australian Government agencies assurance that these services meet stringent Australian Government security requirements.

Digital Transformation Agency chief executive Randall Brugeaud said: “The Digital Transformation Agency is already using AWS to deliver, a secure cloud-based platform for hosting website applications that helps government agencies build digital services quickly.

“Cloud is a critical part of the DTA’s whole of government transformation agenda. The Protected certification of AWS makes it easier for agencies to leverage cloud services,”
