Palantir Unveils Expansion of Federal Cloud Service with DoD IL6 Accreditation


Palantir Technologies Inc. (NYSE: PLTR) is excited to announce that its federal cloud service offering has received a DoD Impact Level 6 (IL6) PA from the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA). With this accreditation Palantir expands its cloud offering to include a new Secret Region, having initially achieved FedRAMP and IL5 with the release of Palantir Federal Cloud Service (PFCS) in 2019. Palantir joins Microsoft and Amazon Web Services (AWS) as one of only three companies with an IL6 Provisional Authorization from DISA for their cloud offerings.

IL6 is a strict security and compliance standard required to process classified data for cloud-based workloads. Palantir Federal Cloud Service IL6 is designed to serve US federal entities, including the Department of Defense and Intelligence Community, in their most sensitive defense and national security missions.

By expanding its cloud capabilities to this new DoD IL6 Secret region, Palantir delivers upon its unparalleled experience developing operational software solutions across all classification levels, and establishes a foundational technology for Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2), offering complex global cloud solutions to meet the next decade of national security objectives.

“We remain steadfast in our commitment to provide leading software technology to the US Government,” said Akash Jain, CTO, Palantir Technologies. “Alongside Deputy Secretary Hicks’s top innovation priorities in enterprise cloud computing and artificial intelligence, we are excited by the possibilities of what our partners across the Government and Industry will develop with Palantir Federal Cloud Services.”

Today, the Department of Defense and Mission Partners can leverage Palantir Federal Cloud Service IL6 to address next-generation warfighting challenges at the speed of relevance.
