Government customers worldwide expect to be fully in control of protecting their data in the cloud. Azure provides many options for safeguarding data throughout its entire lifecycle. From enforcing data residency, to encryption, to strict procedures for insider and government access, Azure keeps to strong principles and commitments that give public sector customers confidence that their data is secure.
For many government customers, enforcing data sovereignty, addressing custom compliance requirements, and applying maximum available protection to highly sensitive data are their top priorities for cloud solutions. Azure Stack Hub and Azure Stack Edge allow them to process highly sensitive data using a private or hybrid cloud and to benefit from a Microsoft intelligent cloud and intelligent edge approach in their architectures.
