On March 30th, ServiceNow announced that the ServiceNow National Security Cloud (NSC) offering obtained a U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) Impact Level 5 (IL5) Provisional Authorization. This makes the ServiceNow NSC one of the few SaaS and PaaS offerings built and authorized to meet the rigorous Department of Defense Cloud Computing Security Requirements Guide at Impact Level 5.

The IL5 Provisional Authorization will accelerate the DOD’s digital transformation, enabling the DOD, mission partners, and select federal agencies to move highly sensitive data, including Controlled Unclassified Information and Unclassified National Security Systems, to ServiceNow cloud‑based solutions hosted on Microsoft Azure Government.

“Since forming a strategic alliance with Microsoft in 2018, ServiceNow has empowered the DOD to modernize its digital infrastructure and meet other mission‑critical objectives, such as driving efficiency and delivering better experiences for employees,” said Steve Walters, Vice President of Federal Sales at ServiceNow. “Validating our commitment to meeting greater security compliance standards, the IL5 Provisional Authorization makes it easier for customers across the DOD to achieve mission objectives fast, and address critical issues impacting their organization, from navigating the new world of work to maximizing talent retention and engagement.”
