Choose how you deploy Microsoft Azure Cloud Services — connecting cloud and on-premises with hybrid cloud capabilities and using open source technologies — for maximum portability and value from your existing investments. Microsoft understands that for you to realize the benefits of the cloud, you must be willing to entrust Microsoft cloud provider with one of Microsoft’s most valuable assets — Microsoft data. If you invest in a cloud service, you must be able to trust that Microsoft 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 expectations. Microsoft strives to earn Microsoft trust in Microsoft Azure Cloud Services. 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 industry leading security measures and privacy policies, and participated in compliance programs with independent verification.
Bring Microsoft Azure Cloud Services capabilities to your data center with Microsoft Azure Stack. Leverage the Microsoft Azure portal, PowerShell, and DevOps tools experience and app model across the cloud and on-premises. Microsoft Azure supports a broad selection of operating systems, programming languages, frameworks, databases, and devices. Microsoft Azure Cloud Services 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 Microsoft Azure’s adherence to the strict security controls these standards mandate. As part of Microsoft 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 Microsoft Azure Cloud and services.
Security And Privacy Are Embedded Into Microsoft Azure Cloud Services
Use Microsoft Azure Cloud Services Security Center to get a central view of the security state of all of your Microsoft Azure resources. At a glance, verify that the appropriate security controls are in place and configured correctly, and quickly identify any resources that require attention. Microsoft makes security and privacy a priority at every step, from code development through incident response. Security and privacy are built right into the Microsoft Azure platform, beginning with the Security Development Life cycle that addresses security at every development phase from initial planning to launch, and Microsoft Azure Cloud Services are 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 Cloud Services the only public cloud platform to offer continuous security health monitoring.
Microsoft Azure Security Keeps Customer 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 Microsoft Azure infrastructure is resilient to attack, safeguards user access to the Microsoft 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 Microsoft Azure Active Directory and enabling multi factor authentication for more secure sign in. Encrypting communications and operation processes. For data in transit, Microsoft Azure uses industry standard transport protocols between user devices and Microsoft data centers, and within data centers themselves. Quickly enable a range of security solutions from Microsoft and its partners, including industry-leading firewalls and antimalware. Use streamlined provisioning to deploy security solutions.
Privacy To Own And Control Data
Microsoft has been a leader in creating online solutions designed to protect the privacy of Microsoft customers. Microsoft’s approach to privacy and data protection is grounded in Microsoft’s commitment to organizations’ ownership of and control over the collection, use, and distribution of their information. Microsoft strives to be transparent in privacy practices, offer you privacy choices, and responsibly manage the data stored and processed. One measure of Microsoft’s commitment to the privacy of data is the adoption of the world’s first code of practice for cloud privacy, ISO/IEC 27018. How Microsoft responds to government and law enforcement requests to access data. When a government wants customer data — including for national security purposes — it must follow the applicable legal process, serving us with a Microsoft to order for content or a subpoena for account information. If compelled to disclose customer data, Microsoft will promptly notify you and provide a copy of the demand, unless legally prohibited from doing so.
