PUBG Mobile's Parent Krafton Signs Deal with Microsoft Azure For User Data Protection


Krafton, the parent company of PUBG Corporation that owns popular battle royale title PUBG Mobile, has announced a global partnership with Microsoft in a bid to ensure the safety and security of its users' data.


According to a press note, the South Korean company would be working with the Microsoft-owned cloud computing service, Azure, to host its portfolio of multi-platform products. The list of products that will be available on Azure includes PUBG for PC and consoles as well as PUBG Mobile app that was banned in India in September over security concerns.


Krafton further states that collaboration with Microsoft will ensure that privacy rights are "respected in full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations." Last month, Tencent Cloud that published PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite apps in India had stated that the company is terminating access for users in the country in compliance with the order from the Indian government.


Tencent in a post on Facebook had further claimed that the rights to publish PUBG Mobile in India would be returned to the owner of the "PUBG intellectual property," that is, PUBG Corporation - a subsidiary of Krafton. The Facebook post added that protecting user data has always been its "top priority."
