Recently, a client asked me to explain in great detail the security of Microsoft’s Dynamics 365 platform, which prompted me to do some research beyond the typical white paper on Microsoft’s security features. This research led me to various Microsoft sites and blogs that helped me logically group the multiple aspects of D365’s security.
First of all, the D365 Online environments are built and hosted on Microsoft’s very own cloud platform, Azure. Microsoft has allocated $1 billion per year to keep this platform secure, and they are constantly monitoring and improving it to keep your data safe.
Secondly, there are many different pieces of security, from the digital to the physical to the processes. Depending on what you’re looking for, you can visit a variety of places for further information. This includes:
- Identity Security: Helps protect against unauthorized access
- Role-Based Security: Aligns with the structure of your business
- Threat Management Security: Detects threats and responds to security breaches faster
- Physical Security: Safeguards data in facilities
- Built-In Security
- Proof of Security: Provides SOC reports
Cybersecurity thieves are hard at work, and Microsoft is keeping pace, but we still encourage you to read through this information to help you and your business stay educated on how your data is being protected by Microsoft.
