Office 365 customers want assurance that effective controls are in place to safeguard their data. We have enhanced our Service Organization Controls (SOC) audit reports with two new trust principles, Processing Integrity and Confidentiality. Insights from these reports help you evaluate how Office 365 maintains compliance with your regulatory requirements and helps you manage the move to Office 365.
As part of our commitment to making Office 365 the most trusted cloud service for productivity and delivering security, compliance and control to Office 365 customers around the globe, I am pleased to announce that Office 365 services will now be delivered in India from the local datacenters in Mumbai, Pune and Chennai.
Today is the worldwide release of Office 2016 for Windows.

It also marks a new model for delivery, where subscribers can expect to get more frequent updates with new features and improvements.
The regulatory compliance and business risk landscape is continuously evolving. At Microsoft, we appreciate our customers’ need to understand the Office 365 architecture and compliance with regulations to help them evaluate moving to Office 365. We also know you need to understand how we keep your data secure on the service on an ongoing basis. To help with your assessment needs, we are announcing Office 365 Service Trust Portal (STP).
