  • Increases organizational collaboration

  • Comes with advanced risk and compliance capabilities
Microsoft has announced the general availability of Power Platform Customer-managed key (CMK), a feature allowing customers to enhance their data protection control by managing their own encryption keys. This feature is integral to the Microsoft Power Platform, a tool that helps streamline low-code adoption, augment organizational collaboration, and integrate AI and automation into business processes. 

The CMK feature encrypts customer data and configuration information with strong Microsoft-managed encryption keys by default. However, customers now have the option to use their own encryption keys for greater control over data security. The customer-managed keys allow for encryption key rotation, key access revocation, and enhanced data protection, meeting essential risk and compliance requirements. 

Mercedes Benz has reported successful use of the CMK feature in Microsoft's Dataverse, citing it as instrumental in their move towards a "cloud-first" paradigm and managing cloud-based data security risks. 

The process to control and manage encryption keys involves the Azure Key Vault admin creating a key vault and generating an encryption key, which the Power Platform Enterprise policy points to. Power Platform local admins then add the Power Platform environment to the Power Platform Enterprise policy, automatically encrypting all environment data with the encryption key. 

The feature provides complete control over encryption keys to the customer, limiting access to the Azure Key Vault and/or key to Microsoft support staff. Deleting or revoking access to the key vault or key will disable all environments encrypted with the key, restricting access by users and Microsoft.
