Written by Charlie Kaufman and Ramanathan Venkatapathy, the paper provides a technical examination of the security functionality available from both the customer’s and Microsoft operations’ perspectives, the people and processes that help make Windows Azure more secure, as well as a brief discussion about compliance.
