Windows Azure receives important SOC 2 and CCM security attestations
By Tim Rains, Director, Trustworthy Computing
The Cloud Security Alliance’s Security Trust and Assurance Registry, or CSA STAR, provides existing and potential customers with insight into how cloud providers – Microsoft and others – are managing the security controls of their services. And at Microsoft, we believe it’s a great tool for businesses considering a move to the cloud as it gives them the visibility and transparency they are looking for to make informed decisions.
We submitted a CSA STAR self-assessment for Windows Azure last March. And in April, three major Microsoft cloud services had self-assessments in the CSA STAR. Today, we took that one step further in getting the self-assessment for Windows Azure verified via a third party.
