Microsoft has strict controls that restrict access to Azure by Microsoft employees. Azure also enables customers to control access to their environments, data, and applications.
Azure Protect Your Accounts Against Unauthorized Access
Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is Microsoft’s central authentication platform for security, identity management and multi-device access. Supports applications implemented in the cloud and in the office.
Enterprise Cloud Directory
Azure Active Directory is a comprehensive identity and access management solution in the cloud. It combines core directory services, advanced identity governance, security, and application access management. Azure Active Directory makes it easy for developers to build policy-based identity management into their applications. Azure Active Directory Premium includes additional features to meet the advanced identity and access needs of enterprise organizations. Azure Active Directory enables a single identity management capability across on-premises, cloud, and mobile solutions.
Key Features of Azure Identity & Access Management
Identity is important in the cloud because employees access remotely sensitive data. Azure Identity Access Management is used to store user identities in the cloud and provide reliable and secure access control. With this service, only the appropriate users access the data.
Advanced Connection Methods
Do not rely solely on passwords. Use additional authentication to prevent account hijacking and other security attacks.
Azure IAM supports many third-party cloud services, so you can integrate access control with your entire application portfolio.
Identity and cloud-level access management to meet all needs. Support a small number of small business users or thousands of employees.
Microsoft Azure provides Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). This helps safeguard access to data and applications and enables regulatory compliance while meeting user demand for a simple sign-in process for both on-premises and cloud applications. It delivers strong authentication via a range of easy verification options—phone call, text message, or mobile app notification—allowing users to choose the method they prefer.
Access Monitoring And Logging
Security reports are used to monitor access patterns and to proactively identify and mitigate potential threats. Microsoft administrative operations, including system access, are logged to provide an audit trail if unauthorized or accidental changes are made. Customers can turn on additional access monitoring functionality in Azure and use third-party monitoring tools to detect additional threats. Customers can request reports from Microsoft that provide information about user access to their environments.
EXPERTISE At Dalwax, we’ve tackled several challenging Azure transformation journeys for our customers, by re-architecting and rewriting their applications from the ground up to be Azure-native. Along the way, we learned some key lessons on how to re-architect applications to be modular, scalable, fault tolerant and ultra-responsive.
PaaS & Container Architectures
We are experts at converting traditional stateful applications into modern applications leveraging Azure PaaS services and container architectures for total control over scalability and resilience.
While modernizing applications we leverage an Agile DevOps driven approach that enables application delivery transformation by enabling toolchains and processes that support continuous integration and continuous delivery.
We can help develop and implement best-fit architectures and components depending on whether your application is heavy on end-user interactions (predominantly user driven and UI / UX is important) vs Event driven (IoT and business process automation Intelligent apps).
Corporate compliance, governance and performance considerations can mandate application components to remain within Private cloud or existing on-premise environments, and still talk to the Public cloud components. Our experts can help design solutions for optimal performance and scale.
While monolithic, on-premise applications are perceived to be secure due to the ability to implement centralized security policies while behind corporate firewalls, with our knowledge and expertise we can help deploy enhanced security postures within your Azure cloud environments.
We can help businesses efficiently leverage ready-to-use Azure cloud services and solution components to reduce development time while benefitting from the inherent cloud native features of the services. Our experts strike the right balance between upfront vs ongoing benefits of using these services.
