The following announcement has been updated. The release of VMware Carbon Black Cloud on AWS GovCloud (US) is delayed; the offering is now expected to be available in August 2022.

VMware is thrilled to announce another milestone on our mission to help government agencies transform their IT infrastructure. Today, VMware Government Services, which includes VMware Carbon Black Cloud and VMware SD-WAN on AWS GovCloud (US) achieved Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) High Authorization through the Joint Authorization Board (JAB). These cloud services are designed to empower US government agencies and customers supporting the US government to migrate, manage, and operate sensitive workloads in the cloud. VMware Government Services is now available on the FedRAMP Marketplace.

“Achieving expanded FedRAMP authorizations enables us to meet our customers wherever they are on their digital transformation journeys to help them innovate faster and create resiliency while adhering to the highest security and compliance standards. These additional accreditations further our commitment to our public sector customers to help them better serve and meet mission demands,”
