Microsoft is working with best-in-class security auditors with multiple areas of expertise. Our initial auditing partners will deliver independently validated security assessments of our customers’ IoT solutions, find issues and provide recommendations. We are also working with standards organizations and consortia, such as the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), to establish industry protocols and best practices for security auditing at multiple levels of the entire IoT ecosystem.

The Security Program for Azure IoT is built on Microsoft’s holistic approach to security for customers with broad investments across platforms for devices, infrastructure, identity, apps and data. Businesses in many industries can benefit, including automotive, smart cities, healthcare, military and more.
