The Defense Information Systems Agency has given provisional authorization to 23 commercial cloud service offerings for the hosting of Defense Department data at Impact Level 2, which covers noncontrolled unclassified information.

DISA said Monday the offerings comply with the moderate baseline of the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP).

“The granting of these provisional authorizations is an important step in our strategy to drive cost down by moving more of our mission data to the cloud,” said Terry Halvorsen, DoD chief information officer.
