Cloud Security

 

Cloud security concerns the protection of applications, data, and infrastructure in the cloud from criminals and other bad actors.

 

Microsoft Azure is a secure cloud platform, but that doesn’t mean the infrastructure your business uses, the data it stores, and the code it runs on Azure is secure. Poor configuration, human error, and failure to follow cloud security best practices are the cause of many data thefts and security breaches.

 

How Does Azure Help With Cloud Security?

 

Microsoft Azure has many enterprise-oriented security and monitoring services. They include the Security and Audit Dashboard, Azure Security Center, Azure Resource Manager, Azure Advisor, Azure App Service’s built-in authentication and authorization support, and Azure Active Directory’s identity and access management. Data can be encrypted at rest and in transit.

 

But using all of the security features of Azure alongside database, server, and code security best practices is challenging. Security can’t be assumed, and many organizations don’t have the expertise to assess their true cloud security status.

7 Quick Microsoft Azure Security Best Practices for 2020

Microsoft Azure operates a shared responsibility security model. Microsoft provides a secure infrastructure. It makes available tools and services to help users to build and manage secure cloud infrastructure deployments. But it is the responsibility of Azure users to manage their cloud infrastructure in line with security best practices.

It is possible to deploy secure infrastructure with Azure: national and local government agencies, including the U.S. Department of Defense, do just that. But it is also possible to deploy insecure cloud servers that lead to security breaches and data leaks. Configuration mistakes create vulnerabilities, and weak authentication and identity management can leave an organization open to attack.

In this article, we’ll look at 7 Microsoft Azure security best practices, including some of the Azure tools that can help your organization stay safe on Azure.
