Today we’re announcing Microsoft Azure has increased the scope of its HITRUST CSF certification to include 172 Azure offerings across 49 Azure regions. Azure’s HITRUST certification letters are available on the Service Trust Portal and include the full list of HITRUST CSF certified Azure offerings and regions.
 
Azure has partnered with the HITRUST Alliance to deliver the HITRUST Shared Responsibility Matrix for Microsoft Azure. Azure customers can leverage Azure’s HITRUST CSF certification to inherit controls and apply them to their own assessments.
 
Azure customers can also accelerate their HITRUST CSF deployments by using Azure’s HITRUST Blueprint. This blueprint helps customers deploy a core set of policies by defining a repeatable set of standards, patterns, and requirements enforced across Azure resources.
