Azure DevOps Services supports your security, privacy and compliance needs.


Cloud-based tools for software development teams

Azure DevOps Services is a set of cloud-based collaboration tools that help you plan, develop, and manage software projects of any size, in any software programming language. Based on the capabilities of Team Foundation Server, with additional cloud services, Azure DevOps helps you manage your source code, work items, builds, tests, and more.

Learn more about Azure DevOps

Azure DevOps uses Microsoft Azure Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) infrastructure and many Azure services, including Azure SQL databases, to deliver a reliable, globally-available service for your projects. Azure DevOps can also use Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) to securely authenticate users and control access to your team’s critical resources. You can manage permissions for your Azure DevOps account by adding Azure AD groups, and set access levels to determine the features that team members can use.
