Microsoft Adds 18 Azure Services to Support DoD Impact Level 5 Data

New Azure services are intended to help mission owners reduce latency, back up and recover files and grow the geographical expanse of employed data centers.

Azure Defender for IoT, one of the newly added services, allows users to analyze internet of things devices for security against cyber threats.

Developers handling IL5 workloads can now also use Azure Machine Learning to operate ML workflows and Microsoft Power Automate to automate processes, the company noted.
