DoD Mission Onboarding

Department of Defense (DoD) mission partners are required to secure their software solutions against an increasingly sophisticated array of cyber threats and vulnerabilities. As outlined by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) and its Security Requirements Guide, mission partners must implement, maintain and monitor a rigorous set of security controls.


An organization’s specific requirements are determined by its corresponding Impact Level (IL). Each level measures the sensitivity of the information stored and/or processed in the cloud:

  • Il2: Information that’s been approved for public release.

  • IL4: Includes Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), non-CUI, non-critical mission information and non-National Security Systems data.

  • IL5: Involves highly sensitive data, such as CUI and NSS.

At first glance, the DoD Authorization and Assessment (A&A) process may look daunting. Without help, it can be a burdensome, costly and time-consuming endeavor — yet one that must be done.

Project Hosts works with mission partners to take the pain out of the process and simplify cloud compliance. Organizations can ensure a seamless cloud transition by onboarding their Cloud IT Projects (C-ITPs) to our Federal Private Cloud DoD Environment. As one of only a few Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offerings that have received a Provisional Authority to Operate (P-ATO) at Impact Level 5, our environment allows customers to inherit the majority of the mandated security controls. This not only eases the burden of compliance but also greatly reduces deployment time.

DoD Compliance as a Service

Generally, there are eight actions necessary to deploy a C-ITP and make it fully IL5 compliant. As a managed service provider, Project Hosts walks you through every step of the process. Our team of security experts augment your IT department and help you simplify onboarding in any way possible.

From providing a cloud compliant environment to continuously monitoring your controls, we’re here to take security and compliance off your shoulders. Download our DoD Onboarding Data Sheet to learn more about how Project Hosts can help mission partner customers today.
