Microsoft is a “Clear Leader” in Cloud Security, Says CEO

During Microsoft’s recent third quarter earnings call, CEO Satya Nadella called the company “a clear leader in cloud security,” while reporting 58% growth in commercial cloud sales. Total sales during Q3 increased by 15.5% to $26.82 billion.
