    US: Clouds on the horizon for Microsoft’s trusted cloud

    Microsoft has been hailed as one of the pioneers of data security and privacy protection by introducing its Microsoft Cloud Germany trusted cloud model as a new framework for data storage capable of shielding data from the reach of the US and other foreign governments. Key to the new framework is an alliance with T-Systems, a Deutsche Telekom subsidiary that will act as German-law trustee for the data stored in Microsoft’s “trusted cloud.” In essence, by placing the data in trust with T-Systems, Microsoft divests itself from the physical and legal means of accessing those data, and access for civil discovery and law enforcement purposes would be available only under circumstances sanctioned by German law, regardless of the “national origin” of such data.
