Azure Gains Security Guidelines

One of IT's biggest cloud fears (besides losing control and losing jobs) is security. Microsoft hopes to alleviate some of those concerns with a new set of security guidelines for Azure.

Much of the advice is aimed at developers so they can build security into their apps from the get go.
