Microsoft Azure security concerns RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are considering the purchase of a migration tool called Sharegate. This migration tool will be used to transfer our data on file share to SharePoint Online. For high speed service, Sharegate requires that we create a storage account in Microsoft Azure. We have E4 license for Office 365. So Sharegate will first transfer our data to Azure and then move it to SharePoint Library. So we need to set up a storage account in Azure.

    Our network administrators are expressing concerns about sending our sensitive data to Azure storage. Wondering what security issues need to be addressed? What do we need to do on our end to make this work.

    Thanks so much!
