Administrators have new tools at their disposal to manage emerging areas of risk and to keep cloud environments secure.
Organizations choosing to adopt a cloud solution – such as Microsoft™ Azure™, Microsoft’s cloud platform – can find that a cloud solution offers many benefits over a traditional hardware ecosystem. These benefits include increasing the reliability and scalability of infrastructure while simultaneously reducing hardware upkeep.
The benefits offered by Azure specifically extend to streamlining identity access management (IAM) and security best practices through several services and key features. The features within Azure assist administrators by more effectively tackling the critical security tasks they would be faced with on a traditional on-premises infrastructure. As organizations move more of their operations and data to cloud solutions, it is important that administrators understand the tools they have at their disposal to help harden and secure the cloud environments they’re adopting.
