National security leaders gain swift access to cutting-edge capabilities, such as AI, through Microsoft Azure Government Secret and Top Secret clouds. This facilitates data analysis, agility, and unified cybersecurity to safeguard critical national data.

With cleared cloud engineers, architects, and data scientists experienced in DevSecOps, the factory ensures secure migration of on-premise workloads to the cloud, compliant with federal guidelines.
