- Up next, we take an exclusive look at Microsoft’s work with Intel to protect your most sensitive information in the cloud. We’ll unpack the latest silicon-level Zero Trust protections and how they help mitigate against privileged access attacks with hardware enforced protection of your most sensitive data with Intel Software Guard Extensions, plus additional defense in depth silicon-level protections against data exfiltration for memory.
