To help you comply with national, regional, and industry-specific requirements governing the collection, storage and use of controlled data, Microsoft offers a comprehensive set of certifications and attestations. Microsoft enterprise cloud services are independently validated through certifications and attestations, as well as third-party audits. You can see a comprehensive list of Microsoft certifications in the Compliance section of the Microsoft Trust Center.
With that said, I’d like to share some good news for our Azure Government customers. In the last few weeks we’ve heard a lot of you ask if we could keep you up to date on the release of Azure services to the Azure Government cloud. Your wish is our command!
