Mobile application security vulnerability report

Interview When Microsoft launched Office 365 it knew that not everyone would want its Henry Ford-style, one-size-fits-all service. Even cloud enthusiasts are constrained by a service with one type of security, one service level and one place to store your customer data, if that place is Dublin.

Office 365 users might also have challenging departments, where data security and regulation require more than Microsoft can offer.

So if 365 doesn't fit your plans, then Fujitsu has an alternative. It is launching Office 365 as a private cloud service, with configurable service levels, different security certification, and a UK-based data centre.

Tina Quenault tells Tim Phillips why Microsoft was happy to see what looks like competition, why she thinks this is a cloud that government departments can use, and why it's still better than just doing the whole thing yourself.
