Microsoft launched this week the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Trust Center, a Web site that provides in-depth information about the privacy and security practices for the Microsoft Dynamics CRM online service.

As data security and compliance are critical key considerations for organizations evaluating cloud services, the company says, the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Trust Center is designed to deliver high-level information about the privacy, transparency, independent verification and security features of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online.

"Customers have to be confident that their business solutions are meeting their high-level security features and privacy needs,” Dennis Michalis, general manager, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, said in a statement. The trust center “ensures transparency in how we operate Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online and handle these critical customer needs."

Gartner, in its research report "Look Before You Leap Into Cloud Computing," published in May 2012, said many enterprises are reaping great benefits from cloud computing, primarily in added business agility and cost savings, “however, as with any significant new form of technology, many eager new customers rush to take advantage of it before all the risks and risk mitigations have been fully explored."
