In Azure, security is built in at every step—design, code development, monitoring, operations, threat intelligence, and response. We understand that the breadth and scale of the cloud demands a deep commitment to security technology and processes that few individual organizations can provide. Decades of building enterprise software and running the world’s largest online services such as Microsoft Azure, Bing, Dynamics 365, Office 365, OneDrive, and Xbox Live have formed Microsoft’s unique perspective on security. Using threat intelligence developed from trillions of signals and billions of sources, Microsoft annually invests more than $1 billion into our security capabilities to provide a comprehensive approach called Microsoft Secure.
We’ve applied our vast operational experience to create a secure platform and provide services to help build secure applications. The Microsoft promise is that you can use Azure to secure your applications, data, and identities. We back this promise with a broad set of Azure compliance certifications, making us the leader among cloud service providers.
