Today we’re announcing that our Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) solution templates are now also available in Azure Government Secret, enabling customers to build, host, and transform their applications faster across Impact Level 6 on secure and compliant infrastructure.

These templates accelerate speed to achieving Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) STIG compliance by delivering an automated, one-click solution that enables customers to deploy, monitor, and maintain non-configured STIG-compliant operating systems.

Currently available on Azure commercial and Azure Government, feedback from our customers helped to shape this offering, which now includes support for several new operating systems and availability sets.

  • Windows 10 Enterprise
  • Windows 10 Enterprise multi-session
