Microsoft keeps adding new features to Azure so as to build a more advanced cloud platform.

4. Data and Secured Service Offerings
Azure is in every way lined up with the evolving industry and its assurance process as it is based on the SDL, Security Development Lifecycle. While on the Azure Cloud, all of your organization’s data and services are absolutely secure and protected. Moreover, security is something that you would not need to worry about when all the Azure services are provided by Microsoft, which provides supremely reliable services across the world.
