GCC High Cloud


To meet the unique and evolving requirements of the United States Department of Defense, as well as contractors holding or processing DoD controlled unclassified information (CUI) or subject to International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS), Microsoft offers the GCC High cloud for protected environments. This means that if you store any CUI, CDI or ITAR marked data you must use this GCC High cloud in order to be DFARS and ITAR compliant. For years the Government cloud was only offered to companies with 500 seats or more, but we are pleased to announce that there are no longer any minimums through the licenses that F1 Solutions can provide to you . F1 Solutions Inc is proud to announce that we have become one of the few authorized resellers of the Office 365 Government Community Cloud High (GCC High).

The GCC High incorporates Office 365, Windows 10, Microsoft Exchange Online, and Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) programs. Although the offerings on the GCC High platform are scaled down from the commercial cloud, it will satisfy your business needs and give you the compliant cloud solution you are looking for.

This revolutionary program will not only prepare you against the growing cyberthreats, but it will also help you build a more modern workplace. By moving to the cloud, their staff will be able to work from anytime, anywhere, on any device so nothing gets in the way of serving the public.

Many are confused about which cloud is right for you. For those of you who have a government contract through the Department of Defense or fall under DFARS or ITAR requirements, you must be on the GCC high in order to be in compliance. Microsoft is not able to supply several requirements under the FEDRAMP controls for the regular public office 365 offering. The chart below might help further point out which cloud is right for you:

Offerings Audience Compliance Levels Available to Sell via CSP
Office 365 Government GCC Federal, civilian, state, local, tribal, federal contractor FedRAMP Moderate
