When you put your data in the cloud, you are asking another entity to be its custodian, making trust fundamental. For Microsoft, trust is embedded in the very DNA of our cloud. We understand that however powerful a technology may be, people will only embrace it if they trust it. This is particularly true for customers in Europe, which is why our drive to help customers unlock productivity using the cloud is underpinned by our commitment to foster and maintain trust in our cloud.

Our guiding principle is simple: we believe a customer’s data is theirs and theirs alone. They are entitled to know where their data resides at any time, who has access to it, and how it is used. Customers should also have the peace of mind of knowing that their cloud service provider values the security and integrity of their customers’ data as highly as their own. Read more.
