Cloud adoption is accelerating in highly regulated industries such as healthcare and banking, and businesses are shifting more mission-critical applications and sensitive data to the cloud. As a result, cloud security is more important than ever. Customers want to know, among other things, whether they can trust Microsoft to protect their data, whether they can meet their organization’s compliance requirements in Microsoft Azure, and how they can keep their virtual networks secure. In addition to rapidly releasing new cloud services, Azure is driving innovation in data protection, threat defense, network security, and identity and access management. Hundreds of new capabilities, such as antimalware, network security groups, and role-based access control, have also been released this year to address customer security requirements and compliance concerns. These capabilities, combined with our legal and compliance commitments, provide a reliable foundation, allowing customers to confidently migrate to the cloud.
