97 Azure Government services now authorized for DoD IL5 workloads

Azure Gov Team

We continue to drive expansion of support for Department of Defense Security Requirements Guide (DoD SRG) Impact Level 5 (IL5) to all Azure Government regions. We’ve added 18 new services for a total of 97 services authorized for IL5 workloads in Azure Government – more than any other cloud provider.

These services include a broad range of IaaS and PaaS capabilities to enable mission owners to move further, faster. Mission owners can choose from multiple regions across the country and benefit from decreased latency, expanded geo-redundancy, and a range of options for backup, recovery, and cost optimization.

When supporting IL5 workloads on Azure Government, the isolation requirements can be met in different ways. Isolation guidelines for IL5 workloads documentation page addresses configurations and settings for the isolation required to support IL5 data with specific service instructions.

You can find a full list of Azure Government services that meet the requirements of DoD in the Azure Government audit scope documentation.
