Default Microsoft talks about Azure cloud security

Microsoft has added its Azure cloud platform to the Cloud Security Alliance's STAR security registry.

The registry is the place where cloud service providers post information about how secure their cloud is.

There is a hope that STAR will be placed where customers can easily compare and contrast security features from providers they may consider working with such as the company loo. But so far not enough enough outfits have signed up. It was started last year but almost six months after its launch, only three companies could be bothered to fill out the 170 question form.

Vole was one of them. It filled in the form providing the security information for Microsoft Office 365. The others were Mimecast and Solutionary.

Microsoft claims that Azure's "core services" are ISO 27001 certified and "this work is planned for the remaining features of the platform."

It has several "core" services, which refer to compute, storage, and virtual network features. According to Computerworld Microsoft's global foundation services, which run Microsoft's online services, also have the smiling accountant logo from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants Statement of Auditing Standards (SAS) No. 70 audits.

For those who like accounting standards the SAS 70 audits have nothing to do with being the first in and the first out of a Microsoft cloud.
