The tech giant Microsoft announced the launch of a new offering for its mission-critical Azure Government cloud targeted at government customers and partners that regularly work with top-secret classified data.

Azure Government Top Secret regions provide the same capabilities as Azure commercial, Azure Government and Azure Government Secret, just at a higher level of security.

“Today, we are announcing the expansion of our mission-critical cloud for US Government with new capabilities in Azure Government, the expansion of Azure Government Secret, and the announcement of a new cloud to serve customers with Top Secret classified data—Azure Government Top Secret,” Tom Keane, corporate vice president of Microsoft’s Azure Global, said.

The new cloud option affords agencies that manage sensitive data — the compromise of which would cause exceptionally grave damage to national security — more flexibility in modernizing their legacy information technology systems.
