Microsoft Azure has taken a major step ahead of its rival cloud platforms with its continued commitment to security in the form of ISO 27017 cloud security certification.

Achieving compliance with the ISO27017 cloud security certificate dictated that Microsoft had to adhere to 44 different cloud risk and threat model controls. With these additional security credentials, Azure appeals to those enterprises and businesses with stringent data requirements. Alice Rison, Senior Director for Microsoft Azure adds that this is of particular interest to those in financial services, healthcare, life sciences, media and entertainment, and worldwide public sector. If your organisation is looking to establish credibility in security, then there’s no better way than to achieve compliance with ISO standards.

Furthermore, Microsoft has also taken this opportunity to update its privacy policy for enterprise products including Office 365, Azure, and Dynamics CRM. Most notably, Microsoft has agreed to not use any customer data it collects, to derive information from it for commercial purposes such as advertising. You can check if the changes affect you here.
