• The introduction of the AWS Secret Region for the U.S. intelligence community comes six years after Amazon announced a cloud data center region for public-sector customers.
• U.S. government agencies with sufficient secret-level access and contracts will also be able to use the new region.

Amazon Web Services on Monday introduced cloud service for the CIA and other members of the U.S. intelligence community.
The launch of the so-called AWS Secret Region comes six years after AWS introduced GovCloud, its first data-center region for public-sector customers. AWS has since announced plans to expand GovCloud. The new Secret Region signals interest in using AWS from specific parts of the U.S. government.
In 2013 news outlets reported on a $600 million contract between AWS and the CIA. That event singlehandedly helped Amazon in its effort to sign up large companies to use its cloud, whose core services have been available since 2006. Today AWS counts companies such as Comcast, Hess, Intuit and Lionsgate as customers. AWS’ competitors include Microsoft, Google, IBM and Oracle.
