Microsoft recently announced that the Cisco CSR1000V is now available in the Azure US Government regions.
Cisco CSR1000v provides best in class routing capabilities that support full path encryption with the strongest cipher suites available in the market, L4-L7 firewall capabilities and L7 visibility and control.
