Here at Azure Government, we are committed to meeting the highest bars for security and compliance requirements, including those for ITAR and Defense Industrial Base customers.

Microsoft provides certain cloud services or service features that can support customers with ITAR obligations. While there is no compliance certification for the ITAR, Microsoft operates and has designed the in-scope Microsoft Azure Government services to be capable of supporting a customer’s ITAR obligations and compliance program. For more information on ITAR, check out the ITAR site on the Microsoft Trust Center. To learn more about the services we added to the ITAR product catalog, check out our post.

Azure Government also enables Defense Industrial Base companies to build systems with assurance that they will inherit controls and processes, meeting  NIST 800-171 and other DFARS requirements. We also provide a single platform that meets the most stringent controls associated with the current mix of applicable standards.
