Published date: 11 February, 2021
Azure Databricks has received a Provisional Authorization (PA) by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) at Impact Level 5 (IL5), as published in the Department of Defense Cloud Computing Security Requirements Guide (DoD CC SRG). The authorization closely follows our FedRAMP High authorization and further validates Azure Databricks security and compliance for higher sensitivity Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), mission critical information and national security systems across a wide variety of data analytics and AI use cases.
Federal, state and local government agencies such as the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Department of Transportation (DOT), the City of Spokane and DC Water trust Azure Databricks for their critical data and AI needs. Databricks maintains the highest level of data security by incorporating industry leading best practices into our security program. The DoD IL5 provisional authorization provides customers the assurance that Azure Databricks meets U.S. Department of Defense security and compliance requirements to support sensitive analytics and data science use cases.
With this provisional authorization, DoD, federal agencies and contractors can now use Azure Databricks to process the most sensitive unclassified, mission critical and national security data in cloud computing environments, including data related to national security and the protection of life and financial assets. Azure Databricks enables organizations across industries to accelerate innovation while minimizing risk when working with highly sensitive, private sector and public sector data.
