Strengthen Your Security Posture
With Azure

Security is critical to your business and to customer satisfaction, so protecting customer data and other business assets must be a top priority. Extensive security capabilities built into the Microsoft Azure platform, combined with the security tools and intelligence provided by Microsoft, help improve your organization’s security posture.

Secure Foundation

Maintaining infrastructure security requires you to make substantial investments and resources without clear ROI. Azure delivers state of the art security from physical datacenters to cloud infrastructure and operations to help reduce your infrastructure security cost and help safeguard your data in the cloud.

Physical Datacenter Security

  • Microsoft designs, builds and operates datacenters that are protected by industry leading security systems.
  • Extensive layers of protection helps reduce the risk of unauthorized physical access to data and datacenter resources.
  • Datacenters are certified to comply with the most comprehensive portfolio of internationally-recognized standards and certifications of any cloud service provider.

Cloud Infrastructure Security

  • Azure is a multi-tenant cloud, segregating customer data, resources and networks, and includes platform-level protections against threats like DDoS.
  • Azure provides custom-built hardware with integrated security, attestation, secure boot, and continuous firmware pen testing.
  • Microsoft cybersecurity experts practice war game exercises and perform live-site penetration testing to actively scan for vulnerabilities and remediate them quickly.

Operational Security

  • More than 3,500 global security experts across Microsoft’s Cyber Defense Operations Center, Digital Crimes Unit and other teams work together to protect the Azure infrastructure.
  • You control your data and access to it in Azure. Any operational help from Microsoft requires your explicit approval with least privileged access provided to complete the task.
  • 24/7 operation to detect and respond to any potential threats with quick notification through the security incident management team.

Built-in Security Controls

Address risks quickly

It’s hard to maintain a strong security posture when security controls are not intuitive and need to be configured separately. Azure includes built-in security controls across a breadth of services that help you protect data and workloads quickly and manage risk across hybrid environments. Integrated partner solutions let you easily transition existing protections to the cloud.

Identity-Based Access Controls
Controlled Network Access
Safeguards For Data In Transit And At Rest
Advanced Threat Protection
Simplified Security Management
Partner Solutions Enabled In The Cloud


As the volume and complexity of security signals grow, determining if those signals are credible threats, and then act, takes far too long. Microsoft offers an unparalleled breadth of security intelligence delivered at cloud scale to help quickly detect and remediate threats.

Redefined threat detection and response

  • You can get actionable insights from Microsoft that are analyzed across vast sources like 18 billion Bing web pages, 400 billion emails, 1 billion Windows device updates, and 450 billion monthly authentications.
  • The Microsoft Intelligent Security Graph makes sense of trillions of data points that mean almost nothing in isolation.
  • Machine learning, behavioral analytics, application-based intelligence, and Microsoft data scientists combine to analyze the flood of data. The resulting insights inform all Microsoft security solutions, which communicate with and learn from each other, helping detect and address threats faster.
