Microsoft Azure Attains Cyber Essentials PLUS Status

Cyber Essentials Plus

Bridgeall are delighted to report that Microsoft Azure has attained the UK Cyber Essentials PLUS badge meeting the stringent requirements outlined in the Cyber Essentials Scheme Assurance Framework.

Cyber Essentials is a UK Government defined scheme designed to help organisations assess and mitigate risks from common cyber security threats in their IT systems.

The scheme assurance framework has defined two different levels of certification.

  • Cyber Essentials – a self-assessment helping organisations check the most important security controls of their IT infrastructure.
  • Cyber Essentials PLUS – providing the same control coverage but with the added assurance that implementation of these controls has been independently tested by an authorised third party.

Microsoft Azure Cloud systems are frequently tested and audited to provide evidence of best practice. The company’s extensive portfolio of compliance reports, trust documents and assessments can be found here – Service Trust.

With Bridgeall also holding Cyber Essentials Certification, you can rest assured that your journey to the Cloud will be in safe hands.
