The U.S. Air Force has awarded a transformational $30+M agreement to Microsoft to provide secure network access to DoD data and applications as well as enable access for mobile and remotely located users. Microsoft has a longstanding 30-year partnership with the DoD and this other transaction agreement (OTA) with the U.S.
Agencies such as the DoD can improve their threat detection and response times by using cloud-based security capabilities and cloud intelligence through Microsoft Azure Government. By shifting responsibilities to Azure, the DoD can get more security coverage, which enables them to reallocate security resources and budget to other agency priorities.
Defense department senior leaders have directed DoD to adopt cloud computing to support the warfighter, a direction that will help build a stronger foundation of cybersecurity. The partnership with a dedicated, certified cloud provider can be pivotal. But given the breadth of these solutions,
Today, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) is taking significant steps to modernize existing systems, opening the door for the use of emerging technologies to increase speed and agility. Accelerating adoption of cloud technologies is critical to the DoD’s ability to maintain the long-term strategic advantage of US military forces.
The proliferation of data from devices and sensors creates both challenges and opportunities for US armed forces. Today, data comes from both manned and unmanned platforms—ranging from form factors like the sophisticated instrumentation on a modern aircraft to the wearable gear.
The rapid evolution of technology and the exploitation of data, machine intelligence, and on-demand computing power is changing the requirements of cybersecurity. Fortunately, the tools available to the DoD are changing, too.
Today we are pleased to announce that L3 Technologies, a leading provider of a broad range of communication, electronic and sensor systems and products used on military, homeland security and commercial platforms, has chosen Microsoft Azure Government as its primary cloud platform for expanding data analytics capabilities, optimizing IT operations, and delivering greater value to customers.
