Why Azure rocks

Trusted, proven, & compliant

Do business with confidence. The Microsoft Cloud is trusted by 90% of Fortune 500 companies and has been recognized as the most trusted cloud.

Microsoft Azure has more certifications than any other public cloud provider on the market. Azure meets compliance standards such as ISO 27001, HIPAA, FedRAMP (High authorization that covers 18 Azure services), SOC 1 and SOC 2, and several international specifications as well.

Safe & secure

Your data is well protected through Microsoft’s multi-factor identification for secure sign-ins, a wide range of encryption capabilities for data at rest, secure networks through Azure Virtual Network – plus intrusion protection, anti-malware, DDoS attack prevention, and so much more.

You’ll always have a centralized view of your Azure resources through the Azure Security Center, which helps you prevent, detect, and respond to any threats with increased visibility and control. And the Azure Security Center makes it the only public cloud platform that offers continuous security health-monitoring.

Data center redundancy

Azure is loaded with decades of experience in managing their global data centers. Backed by Microsoft’s $15 billion infrastructure investment – with ongoing investments and improvements, of course. And you know Microsoft focuses on high reliability, operational excellence, cost-effectiveness, and more.

Plus, Azure comes with Locally Redundant Storage (LRS), where data is stored locally, as well as Geo Redundant Storage (GRS) in a secondary region. So basically, you’re always covered.

Privacy & protection

Microsoft makes privacy a top priority during every step, which is not surprising. You own your data, which means you can access it at any time and for any reason without need for external authorization.

Microsoft naturally doesn’t use customer data or derive information from it for advertising or data mining. As for government and law enforcement requests for data, they must follow applicable legal processes (court order or subpoena) and won’t be granted access to customer data except where you direct them or where required by law.
