Microsoft understands that for you to realize the benefits of the cloud, you must be willing to entrust Microsoft cloud provider with one of the most valuable assets — Microsoft data. If you invest in a cloud service, you must be able to trust that customer data is safe, that the privacy of Microsoft data is protected, and that you retain ownership of and control over Microsoft data — that it will only be used in a way that is consistent with Microsoft’s expectations. Microsoft strives to earn trust in Microsoft Azure. Microsoft’s long experience running online services has involved extensive investment in foundational technology that builds security and privacy into the development process. Over time, Microsoft developed leading security measures and privacy policies, and participated in international compliance programs with independent verification. For data at rest, Azure Cloud Platform Security offers a wide range of encryption capabilities up to AES-256, giving you the flexibility to choose the solution that best meets needs.

Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform Security meets a broad set of international and industry-specific compliance standards, such as ISO 27001, HIPAA, FedRAMP, SOC 1 and SOC 2, as well as country specific standards like Australia IRAP, UK G-Cloud, and Singapore MTCS. Rigorous third-party audits, such as by the British Standards Institute, verify Azure’s adherence to the strict security controls these standards mandate. As part of Microsoft’s commitment to transparency, you can verify Microsoft implementation of many security controls by requesting audit results from the certifying third parties. When Microsoft verifies that their services meet compliance standards and demonstrates how we achieve compliance, that makes it easier for customers to secure compliance for the infrastructure and applications they run in Azure. Securing networks — Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform Security provides the infrastructure necessary to securely connect virtual machines to one another and to connect on premises data centers with Microsoft Azure VMs.


Security And Privacy Are Embedded Into Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform Security makes security and privacy a priority at every step, from code development through incident response. Security and privacy are built into the Microsoft Azure platform, beginning with the Security Development Life-cycle (SDL) that addresses security at every development phase from initial planning to launch, and Azure is continually updated to make it even more secure. Microsoft Operational Security Assurance builds on SDL knowledge and processes to provide a framework that helps ensure secure operations throughout the life-cycle of cloud based services. Microsoft Azure Security Center makes Microsoft Azure the only public cloud platform to offer continuous security health monitoring. Your IT infrastructure is more dynamic than ever, with on premises data centers, cloud and hybrid environments, and an ever-changing threat landscape.  Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform Security managed services gives you a single solution to monitor the security of your infrastructure at the network, system, and application layer.

Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform Security Keeps Data Safe

Microsoft has leveraged its decades long experience building enterprise software and running some of the world’s largest online services to create a robust set of security technologies and practices. These help ensure that Azure cloud security infrastructure is resilient to attack, safeguards user access to the Azure environment, and helps keep customer data secure through encrypted communications as well as threat management and mitigation practices, including regular penetration testing. Managing and controlling identity and user access to Microsoft environments, data, and applications by federating user identities to Azure Active Directory and enabling multi factor authentication for more secure sign in. Encrypting communications and operation processes for data in transit, Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform Security uses industry standard transport protocols between user devices and Microsoft data centers, and within data centers themselves.

Privacy To Own And Control Data

For more than 20 years, Microsoft has been a leader in creating robust online solutions designed to protect the privacy of Microsoft customers. Microsoft time-tested approach to privacy and data protection is grounded in Microsoft commitment to organizations’ ownership of and control over the collection, use, and distribution of their information. Microsoft strives to be transparent in Microsoft privacy practices, offer you meaningful privacy choices, and responsibly manage the data we store and process. One measure of Microsoft commitment to the privacy of customer data is Microsoft adoption of the world’s first code of practice for cloud privacy, ISO/IEC 27018. You own Microsoft own data. With Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform Security, you have ownership of customer data — that is, all data, including text, sound, video, or image files and software, that are provided to Microsoft by you, or on Microsoft behalf, through the use of Azure.
