THE TRUSTED CLOUD

SECURITY

Microsoft has leveraged its decades-long experience of 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 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.

PRIVACY

For more than 20 years, Microsoft has been a leader in creating robust online solutions designed to protect the privacy of our customers. Our time-tested approach to privacy and data protection is grounded in our commitment to organisations’ ownership of and control over the collection, use and distribution of their information.

TRANSPARENCY

Microsoft Azure is built on the premise that for you to control your own customer data in the cloud, you require visibility into that data. You must know where it is stored. You must also know, through clearly stated and readily available policies and procedures, how we help secure your customer data, who can access it and under what circumstances. And don’t take our word for it: you can review the third-party audits and certifications that confirm that we meet the standards we have set.

COMPLIANCE

Azure 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, such as 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 our commitment to transparency, you can verify our implementation of many security controls by requesting audit results from the certifying third parties.
