What is Microsoft Government Cloud?
Microsoft government cloud was unveiled with a motive to provide customized cloud services to the US government and their partners having stringent security and compliance standards. It is a set of comprehensive cloud-based solutions specifically designed for the Federal government and agencies meeting the US government’s thorough compliance and security standards.
The Microsoft government cloud complies with almost all the US government agencies standards including HIPPA, CJIS, ECSB², FedRAMP¹, DoD IL4, and IL5, IRS 1075, ITAR, CMMC, NIST 800-171, and more within an open and integrated platform. It provides rich infrastructure, storage, and identity management capabilities delivered through the cloud, on-premises, and hybrid solutions. Besides, all the data is stored within the United States. Microsoft has designed the government cloud to deliver integrated, familiar experiences with Office 365 for Government in the cloud.
The Microsoft government cloud motivates Federal Government and its agencies to embrace cloud computing not only for the web and apps but for advanced technologies like e Internet of Things (IoT) and sensors, machine learning, digital agents, bots, and speech recognition tools. It allows them to better analyze and understand the data output. In this way, governments can deliver deeply contextual, personalized, and consistent experiences to citizens by harnessing tools that allow them to increase engagement and cost-efficiency.
