Amazon-Built Classified Intell App Marketplace Goes Live

cloudAn Amazon Web Services-hosted marketplace of commercial software applications and developer tools designed for the U.S. intelligence community went live last week, Nextgov reported Thursday.

Frank Konkel writes the IC Marketplace, hosted on AWS’ C2S cloud computing platform, allows intelligence agency personnel to try multiple apps or tools in a classified environment before agencies commit to buy an offering.

The online store has been integrated into a private cloud system that AWS built for CIA as part of the Intelligence Community Information Technology Environment infrastructure, Jared Serbu of Federal News Radio reported.

Thomas Husband, mission transformation task force chief at the Defense Intelligence Agency, told the station product offerings on the IC’s online marketplace are currently sparse and that agencies use the platform for market research.

“We’ll be developing teams that will look at what capabilities these commercial tools provide, and the focus is on the capability — not on any individual company,” Husband added, according to the report.
