Microsoft data centers and operations centers handling Microsoft Azure, Office 365, and Dynamics 365 have been evaluated by independent auditors as meeting the strong security requirements of the Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange (TISAX). TISAX is used by European automotive companies to provide a common information security assessment for internal assessments, the evaluation of suppliers, and as an information exchange mechanism.

As the automotive industry rapidly evolves to incorporate new technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT), connections to the cloud, autonomous vehicles, information security, and privacy are more important than ever, making such specialized compliance offerings as TISAX critical to winning customer trust. Azure’s TISAX compliance allows many companies in the European automotive sector to more easily leverage Azure services, as well as exchange data with suppliers who are also TISAX compliant. 

Microsoft’s Northern Europe (Dublin region, Ireland) and Western Europe (Amsterdam region, Netherlands) were assessed at the TISAX assessment level 3 standard, the highest level used for the most sensitive data such as the artificial intelligence (AI) systems required for the development of autonomous vehicles. Selected data centers in France, the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Korea, Japan, Australia, and selected regions in Asia have been assessed at TISAX assessment level 2. Please view the TISAX results at the ENX Portal
