Data Security

Microsoft secures your data using multiple layers of security and encryption protocols. Get an overview of how Microsoft uses encryption to secure your data.

By default, Microsoft Managed Keys protect your data, and customer data that persists on any physical media is always encrypted using FIPS 140-2 compliant encryption protocols. Customers can also employ customer-managed keys (CMK), double encryption and/or hardware security modules (HSM) for increased data protection.

All data traffic moving between datacenters is protected using IEEE 802.1AE MAC Security Standards, preventing physical “man-in-the-middle” attacks. To maintain resiliency, Microsoft uses variable network paths that sometimes cross Geo boundaries but replication of customer data between regions is always transmitted over encrypted network connections.

Additionally, to minimize privacy risk, Microsoft generates pseudonymous identifiers that enable Microsoft to offer a global cloud service (including operating and improving services, billing, and fraud protection). In all cases, pseudonymous identifiers cannot be used to directly identify an individual, and access to the customer data that identifies individuals is always protected as described above.

 GDPR, subprocessors, data transfer and government access

All Azure services can be used in compliance with the GDPR. If customers using Azure services choose to transfer content containing personal data across borders, they will need to consider the legal requirements that apply to such transfers. Microsoft provides customers with services and resources to help them comply with GDPR requirements that may apply to their operations.

Some Microsoft online services share data with third parties acting as its subprocessors. The publicly disclosed Microsoft Online Services Subprocessors List identifies subprocessors authorized to process customer data or personal data. All such subprocessors are contractually obligated to meet or exceed the contractual commitments Microsoft makes to its customers.

Microsoft will not provide any third party (a) direct, blanket, or unfettered access to customers’ data; (b) platform encryption keys used to secure data or the ability to break such encryption; or (c) access to data if Microsoft is aware that the data is to be used for purposes other than those stated in the third party’s request. Further information on Microsoft’s approach to legal disclosure of customer data in relation to government demands is available here.
