Azure & Azure Government P-ATOs

Azure maintains a P-ATO at the Moderate Impact Level. (Azure was the first public cloud with infrastructure and platform services to receive a P-ATO.) The JAB has also granted Azure Government a P-ATO at the High Impact Level, the highest bar for FedRAMP accreditation, which authorizes the use of Azure Government to process highly sensitive data.

Please note that despite Azure and Azure Government being granted P-ATOs, government agencies must still go through the process to obtain an agency-level ATO for Azure and/or Azure Government. A government agency can leverage the Azure/Azure Gov P-ATOs in its own security authorization process, and rely on it as the basis for issuing an agency ATO that also meets FedRAMP requirements.
