Government agencies and U.S. companies are turning to the flexible, scalable and cost-effective option of cloud computing. While some are still taking a cautious approach with the cloud when it comes to handling sensitive and classified data, we’re hearing more often than not, that CISO’s, Risk Managers and those responsible for governance recognize the value cloud has to offer when their risk and security concerns are addressed.

That is why we are excited to announce that Cocoon Data’s SafeShare offers new functionality to address these concerns for secure file sharing and storage, which is now available as a SAAS product on Amazon Web Services (AWS) GovCloud (US).

The higher level of functionality that is now available in SafeShare on US GovCloud includes:

What is AWS GovCloud (US)?

As described in more detail in the AWS FAQs, AWS GovCloud (US) is an isolated AWS Region that is specifically designed to allow U.S. Government agencies and customers to migrate sensitive data in the cloud by addressing their specific regulatory and strict compliance requirements. AWS GovCloud (US) allows users to adhere to U.S. International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), FedRAMP and DoD CSM Levels 3-5 requirements. Further, AWS GovCloud (US) maintains data sovereignty by limiting the service to U.S. persons only and supports FIPS 140-2 compliant end points, which enables agencies to manage more heavily regulated data on AWS while meeting federal compliance requirements.

SafeShare is ITAR compliant, for further information please see this link.
