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. The latest Security Development Lifecycle, which is really a set of security best practices, now includes advice on locking down Azure.

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