If you’re weighing the pros and cons of implementing Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online, one thing you needn’t be concerned about is security. Last week, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella took the stage to discuss Microsoft’s commitment to security at the Microsoft Government Cloud Forum in Washington D. C. One thing he made clear is that you’ll have a very hard time finding software that’s more secure than Microsoft’s many products.
Microsoft has been working on Windows Hello for facial recognition logins and Device Guard for protecting users from untrusted applications, as well as a vast intelligence network that helps Microsoft to determine what threats are coming from where. Nadella stated that Microsoft spends one billion dollars a year on security to protect itself and its customers. Part of this expenditure goes to a new Cyber Defense Operation Centre in Redmond.
This “intelligence graph” is shared broadly with partners and customers. It brings in a great deal of security-related data from Microsoft customers every day, including the 200 billion emails it looks at every month to check for malware. Nadella said, “We detonate them before we deliver them to the inboxes of people.” Microsoft also stays on top of 300 billion unique logins each month and updates Windows a billion times a month. “We have a unique perspective in terms of attack vectors and how one responds to them,” Nadella says.
Nadella says that there has been a “sea change” in how Microsoft approaches security, and this new posture protects a Microsoft environment of any type or size.
