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.
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 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.
Looking back over the past year and seeing the progress we’ve made gives us a real sense of momentum as we continue to double-down on our investments in Azure Government in 2018.
As the engineering lead for Azure Government,
Jason Henderson, Cloud Solutions Architect
Kyle Hoyer, Technical Solutions Professional
