Cloud services & Technology

Cloud services are an essential component of today’s digital transformation strategies, and should be incorporated within your business practises.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) & Conditional Access

Multi-factor Authentication enables applications to use more than one method of authentication to increase security. This is often summarised as something you have, something you own and something you are. MFA services can be delivered as a cloud or on-premises service that integrate with VPN, RDS and Citrix remote access solutions to name a few, through an identity provider such as Active Directory Domain Services or Azure Active Directory.

Easy to Use

Azure MFA is simple to set up and use. The extra protection that comes with azure MFA allows user to manage their own devices.

Scalable

Azure MFA uses the power of the cloud and integrates with your on premises AD and custom apps. Tis protection is even extended to your high-volume and mission critical scenarios.

Always protected

MFA provides strong authentication using the highest industry standards

Reliable

Microsoft guarantees 99.9% availability of azure multi-factor authentication. The service is considered when unavailable when it is unable to receive or process verification requests.

Conditional Access in conjunction with MFA

The recommended way to enable and use Azure Multi-Factor Authentication is with Conditional Access policies. Conditional Access lets you create and define policies that react to sign in events and request additional actions before a user is granted access to an application or service. Conditional Access policies can be granular and specific, with the goal to empower users to be productive wherever and whenever, but also protect your organization. In this tutorial, let’s create a basic Conditional Access policy to prompt for MFA when a user signs in to the Azure portal. In a later tutorial in this series, you configure Azure Multi-Factor Authentication using a risk-based Conditional Access policy.

Microsoft 365 ATP

Threat Protection ensures systems remain protected against exploit, and to notify when attackers access or attempt to access systems. This is often referred to as an assumed breach approach 

Microsoft Defender

Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection for a complete endpoint security solution. It is designed to help networks prevent, detect, investigate and respond to advanced threats. Delivering preventative protection, it is built within Windows 10 and utilises Microsoft’s robust cloud service.

Azure Threat Protection

Azure Advanced Threat Protection is a cloud-based security solution that leverages your on-premises Active Directory signals to identify, detect, and investigate advanced threats, compromised identities, and malicious insider actions directed at your organization.

Cloud Based Email Filtering

Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection, a cloud-based email filtering service that helps protect your organization against unknown malware and viruses. ATP has rich reporting and URL trace capabilities that give administrators insight into the kind of attacks happening in your organization and includes features to safeguard your organization from harmful links in real time.

Azure Identity + Information Protection

Azure Identity Protection is a tool that allows organizations to accomplish three key tasks: 1. Automate the detection and remediation of identity-based risks. 2. Investigate risks using data in the portal. 3. Export risk detection data to third-party utilities for further analysis.

Classify data based on its sensitivity

Always protect your data

Identity Protection uses the learnings Microsoft has acquired from their position in organizations with Azure AD, the consumer space with Microsoft Accounts.

Azure Information protection controls and helps to secure email, documents and sensitive data that you share outside of your company.

Add visibility and control to track activity on shared data

Collaborate more securely with others within your organisation

The difference between managed services and traditional ICT support is comparable to the difference between having a doctor monitoring your health and buying a box of bandages.
