One of the primary fears business people often express about cloud computing is that the cloud providers will mishandle or insufficiently protect their data. After all, in the cloud, businesses must trust all of their data, which often contains critical business information, to the hands of a remote stranger. If there is any doubt, any fear that a cloud provider cannot be trusted, a business should not enter into a relationship with it.
Microsoft understands these trust issues that business people have. It makes perfect sense for people to be apprehensive about entrusting their most precious business information with anyone outside of the business. It is for that reason that Microsoft has adopted clear principles of trust for Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online. These Trust Principles are:
- Your Privacy Matters
- Leadership in Transparency
- Independently Verified
- Relentless on Security
In many ways, the word “cloud” may not adequately describe the type of service Microsoft offers. Something that is cloudy is not clear, difficult to see, but Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online is designed to be transparent so that you know exactly what you are getting, where your data is, and who has access to it.
Security and privacy are vital to every company, and Microsoft has adopted industry standards from organizations like the ISO, HIPAA, and others to ensure that Dynamics CRM Online is certified and providing the type of security a business of any size needs.
