Red Hat Achieves FedRAMP High Authorization for OpenShift Service on AWS GovCloud and Insights

Jointly-managed and supported turnkey application platform and suite of hosted services for predictive analytics help agencies accelerate innovation while meeting stringent security requirements

Red Hat, Inc., the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, announced that Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS GovCloud and Red Hat Insights have achieved Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Agency Authority to Operate (ATO) at the High Impact Level. With FedRAMP High authorization, organizations in highly regulated industries can address key government security and compliance requirements. US federal agencies and their contractors are now able to build, deploy and run Kubernetes-based applications on Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS GovCloud. Additionally, with the authorization of Red Hat Insights, agencies can now monitor and manage their business, operations, and security use cases for Red Hat Enterprise Linux on AWS GovCloud using Red Hat Insights.


“With Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS GovCloud, we can build and deploy applications while meeting government compliance requirements to protect sensitive workloads. It is important for us to have a platform that not only accelerates application delivery, but also addresses key security and compliance mandates for sensitive data.”

FedRAMP is a government-wide program that promotes the adoption of secure cloud services across the federal government by providing a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. FedRAMP introduced their High Impact Level to account for the government’s most sensitive, unclassified data in cloud computing environments, including data that involves law enforcement, emergency systems, financial systems, health systems and more. Achieving FedRAMP High indicates that Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS GovCloud and Red Hat Insights have successfully undergone rigorous audits of critical security controls to highly-sensitive data in cloud computing environments. This news follows Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS’s provisional authorization through the Joint Authorization Board (JAB) last year.

Comprehensive managed application platform for Government

Launched in March of 2021, Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS (ROSA) is a joint, turnkey application platform from Red Hat and AWS that makes it easier for customers to build, scale and manage containerized applications on AWS.

Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS GovCloud simplifies operations so agencies can focus on application innovation, rather than managing complex underlying infrastructure. For agencies who already use Red Hat OpenShift, the service simplifies moving on-premises OpenShift workloads to AWS and offers a tighter integration with other AWS services. With FedRAMP High, agencies can deploy highly-sensitive workloads on Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS GovCloud with greater confidence in their ability to conform to data access and residency regulations, and to address known security vulnerabilities with applicable fixes. ROSA is backed by a Red Hat site reliability engineering (SRE) team that manages the underlying infrastructure, integrated tools and day to day operations, including automating updates, patches and upgrades.
