Microsoft is taking it’s investments in security technology to the next level. Microsoft today confirmed that they have acquired Secure Islands, a leader in data protection technology startup in Israel. This acquisition accelerates Microsoft’s ability to help customers secure their business data no matter where it is stored – across on-premises systems, Microsoft cloud services like Azure and Office 365, third-party services, and any Windows, iOS or Android device.

Secure Islands’ technology enhances the data protection capabilities available today with Azure Rights Management Service, Microsoft’s cloud-based information protection solution. The company has long been a close Microsoft partner and built its solutions using our rights management technology. Secure Islands will continue to sell its existing solutions and support its customers.
After completing this acquisition, we will integrate Secure Islands’ technology into Azure Rights Management Service to provide a flexible architecture able to meet the most rigorous protection and compliance requirements. These new capabilities, combined with the data classification in Windows and Office 365, will provide our customers with the industry’s most comprehensive data protection solution.
