Thanks to managed cloud providers like Azure cloud services, the digital world is simply making better, data-driven decisions notes ZdNet.
"Software used to be the undisputed No. 1 concern for digital transformation. Not anymore. While software remains key, its importance has been at least equal, if not overshadowed, by data."
Microsoft Azure security

With machine learning and behavioral analytics, Azure used Microsoft Intelligent Security Graph in order to analyze data resulting in Azure detect threats faster.
Azure Encryption defines 'best practices.'
Protecting data in the cloud with today's encryption methods starts with following "best practices" when considering the two conditions affecting data:

Azure Key Vault
The TMC Azure Cloud provides subscribers access to the Azure Key Vault. For example, app developers no longer need to "store security information in their applications." Furthermore, Admin's can monitor permissions, granting---or revoking---access as needed.
When it comes to SaaS applications in the TMC Azure cloud services, such as Microsoft Dynamics 365, Azure protects the data with a network of multi-layered security "across physical data centers, infrastructure, and operations within Azure."
