(Cloud) Tip of the Day: Azure Government cloud expands coverage with DoD Impact Level 4 Provisional Authorization, ITAR readiness and FedRAMP High

Today’s Tip…

We are pleased to announce three major Azure compliance additions to support government entities and government partners:

  • Information Impact Level 4 by the Defense Information Systems Agency - allows all US Department of Defense (DoD) customers and mission partners to leverage Azure Government for controlled unclassified information—data requiring protection from unauthorized disclosure and other mission-critical data including data subject to export control, privacy, or protected health information, or data designated as For Official Use Only, Law Enforcement Sensitive, or Sensitive Security Information.
  • International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) compliance –supports customers and partners who store and process International Traffic in Arms Regulations regulated data to leverage Azure Government to conform with these data requirements.  Azure Government meets the strict location and personnel requirements required under ITAR by restricting access to US persons and storing data in the US.
  • FedRAMP High formal award – formalizes that Azure Government has controls in place to securely process high-impact level data—data that, if leaked or improperly protected, could have a severe adverse effect on organizational operations, assets, or individuals.
