Joy Chik leads engineering for Microsoft’s multi-billion-dollar Identity business that is building greater security and mobility into consumer and enterprise technologies that billions of people rely on every day .

Since declaring itself a “mobile first, cloud first” company in 2014, Microsoft has invested billions of dollars in its cloud infrastructure and services. Joy Chik is responsible for the Azure Active Directory technology that 90 percent of fortune 500 companies, 17 million organizations, and over two billion people use to help secure their digital identities when signing into every Microsoft service, including Azure, Windows, Office 365, Outlook.com, Xbox Live, and Bing. Tens of billions of times a day, users of Microsoft’s cloud services authenticate their identities through the technology that Joy’s organization has created.
