Microsoft Wins Lucrative Cloud Deal With Intelligence Community

I'm proud to announce that the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) has extended its digital transformation investment in Microsoft technologies through a transformative agreement worth potentially hundreds of millions of dollars over six years.

The agreement expands an existing contract among Microsoft, Dell Technologies Inc. and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to include more products.

Through this latest agreement, the IC can leverage technology innovation, embracing interoperability and providing secure hyperscale cloud that extends to meet each of their 17 agencies right where they are. "If the IC (intelligence community) can trust it, so can the DOD".

It should also help it in its efforts to land a lucrative Pentagon cloud contract in which it is vying against Amazon, IBM and Oracle.

To ensure world-class security, Azure Government's eight geographically distributed, highly available government-only datacenter regions host no commercial data.

Azure Government is one of the highlighted offerings of Microsoft to the American country-runners, delivering top standard security and the "deepest built-in compliance on the market" with over 70 certifications.

"What this (deal) does, is it reinforces the fact that we are a solid cloud platform that the federal government can put their trust in", said Dana Barnes, vice president of the Microsofts national-security group.
