Citizens accustomed to using digital services in all aspects of life are looking to agencies across all levels of government — federal, state, and local — to provide that same access. By pivoting to meet these demands, agencies are able to open up new government services, while modernizing their IT programs and saving taxpayer dollars.
The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) and the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) have granted Salesforce Government Cloud a provisional authorization at Impact Level 4 (IL4). Government Cloud gives departments, agencies, and contractors access to an intuitive user experience, a modern component-based platform and a vibrant partner ecosystem, enabling them to quickly build apps connecting agencies with citizens, employees, partners, and suppliers in new ways.
“The aerospace and defense sectors are ripe for modernization — siloed systems and legacy technologies are hindering their ability to innovate at scale,” said Dave Rey, executive vice president, Public Sector at Salesforce. “With IL4 provisional authorization for Government Cloud, these sectors can now use the power of the world’s #1 CRM and cloud platform to transform into modern, mobile, responsive, and intelligent organizations, enabling employees to connect with citizens and stakeholders in entirely new and powerful ways.”
With the IL4 provisional authorization, DoD mission owners and authorized contractors will use Government Cloud to manage Controlled Unclassified Information, including Personal Identifiable Information (PII) and Protected Health Information (PHI). In addition, IL4 will enable agencies to:
- Compliantly leverage and build apps capable of managing CUI/FOUO data.
- Control and monitor where and what actions are being taken on data, as well as store and manage the events and monitoring data per agency policy.
- Leverage role-based security and encryption to secure data files and attachments while maintaining important application functionality.
Congratulations to Salesforce for earning a Market Connections Winning Contractor commendation!
