Why Azure Government for CMMC?



CMMC audits are coming in 2020 for the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) and many contractors are needing a single environment to house corporate data and CUI.


Azure Government can be the ideal environment to host backups (a CMMC requirement in the RE domain), run operational workloads like contracts and accounting systems, and house more sensitive engineering data.  

  • Cloud Infrastructure Housed in US-only and Government-only Data Centers

  • DISA Impact Level 5 Provisional Authorization

  • Supports US export-controlled data: #CUI, ITAR, and more


The above and below videos are part of a new series highlighting the native benefits of Azure Government for security and compliance.





Aerospace and Defense companies can capitalize on 1st party security products to meet modern cyber security standards and federal regulations.


  • Azure Sentinel
  • Azure Information Protection (AIP)
  • Azure Advanced Threat Protection (ATP)
  • Azure Security Center
  • Azure Active Directory (AAD) Conditional Access
  • and many more...

Azure can put out all the little (or big) fires and prevent them before it's too late. A more thorough discussion on how Azure Sentinel can meet several CMMC requirements will be released in the coming days.
