TYSONS CORNER, VA, June 14, 2018 — Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) and Thales have established an alliance that aims to advance a new cloud platform intended to enable defense customers to store and secure classified and sensitive information within their information technology infrastructure while on the field, ExecutiveBiz reported Wednesday.
