Announcing compliance hub for Azure
To help customers meet their own compliance obligations across regulated industries and markets worldwide, Microsoft Azure maintains the largest compliance portfolio in the industry both in terms of breadth (total number of offerings), as well as depth (number of customer-facing services in assessment scope). A new Azure compliance hub page provides easy access to this information.
Azure is a multi-tenant hyperscale cloud platform that is available or announced to customers in 60+ regions worldwide. To find out which Azure services are available in which regions, explore the Azure global infrastructure product availability dashboard.
Azure compliance offerings are grouped into four segments: globally applicable, US government, industry specific, and region/country specific. Compliance offerings are based on various types of assurances, including formal certifications, attestations, validations, authorizations, and assessments produced by independent third-party auditing firms, as well as contractual amendments, self-assessments, and customer guidance documents produced by Microsoft.
Each offering description in Azure compliance documentation provides links to downloadable resources to assist customers with their own compliance obligations. For more information, see Azure compliance documentation.
