Re: Classified and commercially sensitive documents?
"This allows us to ensure documents and emails are encrypted at rest and in transit and when we're talking about documents stored in the cloud we have BYOK (bring your own key) and shortly HYOK (Hold Your Own Key) encryption facilities, this is all baked into Azure"
That's nice but to give an example of the problem, EU classified documents may not be transported or stored outside the EU, even if encrypted. Even if Microsoft promise to only use cloud storage within the EU for certain customers, once the data has left the customer's site, how can they be sure? After all, governments and companies in several European countries have been the subject of spying by US intelligence agencies, despite being allies.
