Accredited for Azure Government Secret: Azure Stack Hub, Azure Stack Edge, Azure Data Box

Eric Brown

Today we’re announcing the Department of Defense (DoD) Impact Level 6 (IL6) accreditation for Azure Government Secret of several mission-critical device services for Azure Stack Hub, Azure Stack Edge, and Azure Data Box.

Generally available in Azure Government, and Azure commercial, these first-party devices help you to do more for your mission. Azure Stack Hub and Azure Stack Edge enable capabilities such as pre-processing data for low latency response times, bringing AI and machine learning (ML) to the edge, or harnessing satellite data more rapidly to enable decision-making in disconnected environments; while Azure Data Box helps to easily transfer large quantities of data to Azure Government and Azure Government Secret without relying on network connectivity or bandwidth.

Learn more about these devices designed and built for your mission requirements:

Image Azure Stack Hub Azure Stack Hub Ruggedized from Microsoft is an Azure Hardware and Software solution that brings a cloud-consistent approach to operating environments while addressing limited or no network connectivity, harsh conditions requiring military specifications, and high security requirements with optional connectivity to any Azure cloud.
Image Stack Edge Pro R 8211 Mini Combo Azure Stack Edge appliances, Azure Stack Edge Pro R and Azure Stack Edge Mini R, enable you to run applications and leverage hardware-accelerated AI and ML solutions to analyze, transform, and filter data at the edge, right where data is created and collected. You can then aggregate data in Azure for further analytics, with common app logic across both. The appliances also act as a cloud storage gateway, enabling eyes-off data transfers to Azure while retaining local access to files.
Image Azure Data Box Azure Data Box devices easily move data to Azure when busy networks aren’t an option. You can transfer large amounts of data to Azure when you’re limited by time and network availability, using common copy tools such as Robocopy. All data is encrypted, and the devices are wiped clean after upload, in accordance with NIST Special Publication 800-88 revision 1 standards.
