PUBG parent Krafton has announced a global collaboration with Microsoft Azure in a press release today, November 7, 2020, to strengthen the privacy and security of their games.
This collaboration ensures that Krafton, and all its subsidiaries including PUBG Mobile, PC, and Console will apply Microsoft's cloud platform Azure to strengthen compliance with the personal information protection laws and the applicable laws of related software. This move has come after the Indian government banned the game due to potential data theft.
Krafton announces global partnership with Microsoft Azure to make privacy and information security a top priority
Krafton has decided to apply Microsoft's Azure, which can comply with the most complex regulations with state-of-the-art security, to make privacy and information security a top priority. Azure supports a number of multiplayer games. In the future, through this collaboration, it will be possible to strengthen compliance with the personal information protection laws and the applicable laws of related software.
For improved data security, Krafton, along with Microsoft, plans to introduce a process where Krafton and its subsidiaries regularly inspect and verify that the user information stored in the region where the game service is operated meets all relevant requirements.
Azure is Microsoft's public cloud computing service that helps game makers develop, run, and grow games on a global scale.
PUBG Mobile has been working hard to get the game unbanned in India, one of the biggest mobile gaming market. We are also expecting a big announcement this Diwali, and the game is likely to be playable again by 2020.
