Microsoft Azure has now achieved provisional accreditation from the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) for the Government of India. Microsoft is one of the first global cloud service providers to achieve MeitY’s accreditation. It allows government agencies and departments in India to choose the Microsoft Cloud to advance their digital transformation, optimize IT operations, and transform societies.

The Microsoft Cloud provides industry-leading levels of security, privacy controls, compliance, and transparency for Indian government agencies to achieve higher efficiencies, with greater reliability and scalability.

“With this new accreditation, Microsoft can now do more to support the Government of India in its journey to provide transformational e-governance services, financial inclusion opportunities, quality healthcare, and education to billions of people in the country”, said Alice Rison Senior Director, Microsoft Azure.
