Business Transformation Driving Cloud Adoption

To keep pace with digital transformation initiatives, organizations are rapidly adopting a cloud-first agenda both for new IT investments as well as the migration of existing workloads.

Public cloud environments offer an open and flexible cloud computing platform with no capital expenditures or hardware to deploy. Organizations can have new initiatives up and running quickly and cost effectively. And with a wealth of different services available, the outcome is that organizations not only can support digital initiatives through the cloud, but they can also introduce more dynamic and efficient solutions.

So are you going Azure? As a leading provider of cloud computing services, Microsoft Azure offers a wide range of enterprise and consumer services designed to help organizations meet their business challenges. With 54 global Azure regions spanning 140 countries, the Microsoft global network delivers those services through an energy-efficient global infrastructure that is highly available, secure, and agile.

Security Top of Mind

Today’s sophisticated and ever-changing threats are attacking every possible vector, and cloud opens up a whole new attack surface. As applications and data move to a public cloud environment, securing them is top of mind—as certainly should be the case.

So who is responsible for securing data and resources in the cloud? The shared responsibility model clearly indicates that the cloud provider is responsible for securing all the physical infrastructure, and Microsoft Azure has security controls integrated into the hardware and firmware components of its cloud platform to do just that. You, however, are responsible for keeping your apps and data safe, wherever where they reside or transit.

Securing cloud-based resources can be challenging, especially if you are looking to create a single, integrated security framework that spans your entire distributed network, from core to cloud. Battling the sophisticated and ever-changing threats your organization is accustomed to on-premises is one thing, but extending it to keep pace with the dynamic nature of cloud is another. That is why security well beyond basic network-level controls is required to protect business-critical apps and data in the cloud.

So is enterprise-grade, comprehensive security possible in a cloud environment?
