This whitepaper discusses Microsoft’s strategy and execution of Red Teaming and live site penetration testing against Microsoft managed cloud infrastructure, services and applications. You will learn how Microsoft simulates real-world breaches, conducts continuous security monitoring and practices security incident response to validate and improve the security of Microsoft Azure and Office 365. In addition, you will gain visibility into procedures that customers should consider when deploying and managing cloud-based assets in a secure manner.

Red Teaming is above and beyond compliance accreditations or other industry requirements and provides Microsoft, and our customers, with the additional assurance that Microsoft cloud services are continuously performing security monitoring, testing, and updates to reflect the constantly changing threats that both customers and Microsoft face.
