Azure managed security to protect your cloud services

The cloud has put more data in the hands of organisations than ever before. With this power has come greater responsibility to protect this information and repel the constant threat of cyber-attacks.

Azure managed security from Content+Cloud will make sure you’re always a step ahead of these threats. Our Azure managed service is secure by design, with advanced and focused support available through our award-winning, expert Cyber Security Operations Team (CSOC) and reinforced by our long-running partnership with Microsoft. We’re equipped not only to alert you to dangers but to rapidly contain them.

 

How our Azure managed security helps organisations like yours

Any organisation handling data online is potentially at risk from cyber threats. For some of our clients, our Azure managed security service helps them calculate the probability of a security incident so they can build their risk tolerance. For others, an incident may have already occurred, and they need urgent, specialist help to contain it. Some need to establish a security baseline to ensure compliance with regulations such as data privacy laws, ISO27001 or financial standards.

Cyber threats are constant and ever-evolving – and many IT teams may not have the skills, time or resource to stay on top of the signals cyber criminals generate. Azure managed security from Content+Cloud gives you the reassurance of round-the-clock vigilance, underpinned by our deep Azure and cyber specialisms and Microsoft’s rigorous standards.

Secure by design

The security built into Azure is second to none. Microsoft invests more than $1bn into cybersecurity a year, employs 3,500 experts and has more compliance certifications than any other cloud provider. Our approach is built on these firm foundations, leveraging infrastructure as code to deliver consistent, maintainable security baselines to your technology environment.

A 24/7 Microsoft Sentinel SOC

The threat of cyber-attack can strike at any time. That’s why our Microsoft Sentinel SOC monitors your cloud environment all day, all year, giving you visibility and actioning of threat activity as soon as they’re detected through a blend of automation and human intelligence.

A dedicated team with broad cyber specialisms

With a Microsoft Advanced Specialisation in Threat Protection, we’re the ideal partner to secure your Azure environment. Our hugely skilled team includes GIAC-certified incident handlers and forensic analysts, and CISM– and CISSP-accredited SOC analysts, with key qualifications such as MS-500 and AZ-500. You’ll also have a focused technical lead and an account director with executive sponsorship.

How our Microsoft Azure security services are delivered

What sets our approach to Microsoft Azure security services apart is our capabilities to not just monitor and detect, but also to contain – critically, this means removing any delays in countering a threat’s movement in your environment.

The multi-layered security of Azure offers gives you a secure cloud foundation. On top of this, our Cyber Security Operations Centre (CSOC, or SOC) delivers security coverage 24/7, 365 days a year, with access and identity tooling included. Our service, powered by Microsoft Sentinel, is scalable to your business needs, visible to your teams and integrable with your tools and data sources.

Fully ISO27001-certified, our service delivers the following key activities:

Powered by Microsoft Sentinel SOC

The foundations of our service are built upon Microsoft Sentinel, a cloud-native security information event management (SIEM) and security orchestration automated response (SOAR) solution. We chose Sentinel as it allows us to reach across the Microsoft cloud for unified protection and reporting, integrate at scale, and identify threats across disparate technologies.

Our Microsoft Sentinel CSOC gives you a single solution to security management and response. You’ll be able to automate and orchestrate common tasks in minutes, apply threat intelligence from trillions of signals captured by Microsoft, and harness AI to recognise new threat behaviours.
