Tim Rains on Encrypting Data at Rest in Microsoft Cloud Services

imageHow does Microsoft secure data at rest in its cloud services ?

That's a great question and we've had a lot of people ask us on the Azure Security Engineering team the same thing.

Tim Rains, Chief Security Advisor, Microsoft Worldwide Cybersecurity & Data Protection, covers a number of things that we do within to help secure your data at rest.

Some of these things include:

  • Physical security controls, logging, auditing, access controls, key management and others
  • Azure disk encryption
  • Third-party disk encryption options
  • StorSimple (storage appliance)
  • Client-Side Encryption for Microsoft Azure Storage

Tim goes over the details, which you can read about in his article Cloud security controls series: Encrypting Data at Rest
