Microsoft today has unveiled a new Azure Confidential Computing technology that delivers “always on” encryption services.
The product is a set of features and services sitting on top of a hardware-based cloud solution that delivers encryption of data while in use. This protects customer data by encrypting information both at rest and in transit. The solution is based on Intel SGX technology and is a result of a partnership between Microsoft Research, WDG, and Intel.
Azure confidential computing is now available in private preview as part of a special early access program. Customer are encouraged to apply for the early access program here
