Job Information

Microsoft Corporation Director, Trusted Cloud - M365 + Azure in Cambridge, Massachusetts

Security, Compliance and Identity (SCI) is critical for our increasingly digital world. As digital transformation accelerates, our mission to empower every person on the planet by building a safer world has never been more important.

SCI is a multi-billion-dollar business today with a steep growth trajectory. Our addressable market exceeds $150B, and as such Microsoft recently brought these categories together to form our newest commercial customer solution area.

Microsoft plays a unique role in the security space. Unlike pure-play security vendors, we operate both as a platform provider that ships products with security built-in, and as a security solutions provider that ships security solutions that we monetize. Balancing those two roles will continue to be critical for our future success, and we need to continuously articulate the distinction and added value of Microsoft Security. As evidenced during the Exchange On-Premises / Hafnium incidents, reputation risks may arise for us if our core platform business faces security issues. In this deep dive, we seek to articulate our internal focus, external positioning, and their implications on customer-facing aspects of our business, such as branding, packaging, and go-to-market.
