Microsoft Office 365 Government GCC in CSP now available

Organizations at all levels have been tasked with modernizing legacy IT systems, and the many government agencies that still haven’t moved to the cloud could have the opportunity to be transformed with Microsoft. Cloud productivity services are crucial to keeping organizations of all sizes running securely and smoothly in the modern age. In order to help partners address this market opportunity and bring the convenience and security of the Microsoft cloud solutions and services to US federal, state, local, and tribal entities, we are introducing Microsoft Office 365 Government GCC in the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program, available now.

Deliver reliability and innovation with Microsoft Office 365 Government GCC.

Under pressure to deliver greater value with dwindling resources, public agencies—from local to federal levels—need solutions that can keep up with the times. Offering the flexibility to move to the cloud at their own pace, Microsoft Office 365 Government allows personnel in the public sector to work their best wherever they are, simplifying and assisting collaboration.

Microsoft Office 365 Government GCC makes security high-priority.

Office 365 Government GCC provides Office 365 services with additional commitments regarding compliance accreditations, personnel screening, and data residency to meet the unique needs of US Government customers. All Office 365 Government GCC services meet compliance requirements for FedRAMP Moderate, CJIS, IRS 1075, and DISA SRG L2. Data for Microsoft Office 365 Government is more secure because it’s stored in a separate cloud, outside of Microsoft’s commercial Office 365 servers, and outside of the government agency only screened Microsoft personnel can access the government agency’s customer content.
