  • Compliance: Azure conforms to global standards


    Microsoft invests heavily in the development of robust and innovative compliance processes. The Microsoft compliance framework for online services maps controls to multiple regulatory standards. This enables Microsoft to design and build services using a common set of controls, streamlining compliance across a range of regulations today and as they evolve in the future.
  • Transparency


    For customers to effectively exercise their right to control their data, they must have access and visibility to that data. They must know where it is stored. They must also know, through clearly stated and readily available policies and procedures, how the cloud provider helps secure customer data, who can access it, and under what circumstances.
  • Customers are in control of their data


    For many organizations, the benefits of moving to the cloud are clear. Still, fear of losing control causes their decision makers to hesitate. Where will data be stored? Who owns the organization’s data? Who will be accessing the data? And what happens if the organization wants to switch providers? These are all valid questions - questions Microsoft has in mind when making a clear commitment to provide customers with control over their data. This commitment is unique among major cloud service providers.
  • Privacy: Customers own and control their data


    Customers will only use cloud providers in which they have great trust. They must trust that the privacy of their information will be protected, and that their data will be used in a way that is consistent with their expectations.
  • Identity and Access


    Microsoft has strict controls that restrict access to Azure by Microsoft employees. Azure also enables customers to control access to their environments, data and applications.
  • Data Protection


    Azure allows customers to encrypt data and manage keys, and safeguards customer data for applications, platform, system and storage using three specific methods: encryption, segregation, and destruction.
  • Network Protection


    Azure networking provides the infrastructure necessary to securely connect VMs to one another and to connect on-premises data centers with Azure VMs. Because Azure’s shared infrastructure hosts hundreds of millions of active VMs, protecting the security and confidentiality of network traffic is critical.
  • Infrastructure Protection


    Azure infrastructure includes hardware, software, networks, administrative and operations staff, and the physical data centers that house it all. Azure addresses security risks across its infrastructure.
  • Security Design and Operations


    Secure cloud solutions are the result of comprehensive planning, innovative design, and efficient operations. Microsoft makes security a priority at every step, from code development to incident response.
