Security commitments and improvements on Azure Database for MySQL are attracting a growing number of customers to the platform. Our customers rely on national and industry standard security controls to develop and improve their cybersecurity defenses, and they expect the same level of security due diligence when they build their open source workloads in the cloud. These security controls also ensure that they meet the security and compliance certification requirements applicable to their industry, country, or region. This blog will highlight some of Azure Database for MySQL most notable security compliance offerings and new security features on the platform that we will be blogging about in the coming weeks.
Azure Database for MySQL have achieved a comprehensive set of national, regional, and industry-specific compliance certifications in our public cloud to help customers comply with requirements governing the collection and use of their data . To date, Azure Database for MySQL have amassed over 50 compliance offerings, including the more notable ones such as HIPAA, HITRUST, PCI-DSS, ISO 27001, ISO/IEC 27018, FedRAMP High, etc. Azure Database for MySQL are continuing to pursue even more compliance certifications, which we’ll announce in future blogs and as part of Azure’s compliance offerings.
Azure’s continued commitments have also led to the development and implementation of several new security features on Azure Database for MySQL that we’ll be blogging about in the next couple of weeks. These new features include high-demand capabilities such as Data Security at Rest (bring your own key [BYOK] and double encryption), Data security in Motion (TLS and SSL), Network Security (firewall, service endpoint, private link), and Access Methods (native authentication and AAD).
Microsoft also offers the Azure IP Advantage for services running open source technologies.

These new features and others in development highlight Azure’s commitment to be the most secure cloud in the world and collectively strengthen the security portfolio of our open source services.
