How Azure security protects your data
Microsoft Azure security offers a comprehensive set of tools to shore up your digital defences. In our experience, there can be many prompts for organisations to look to Azure security – from the proactive, such as building risk tolerance into your networks or achieving compliance (data and financial regulations, ISO standards or contractual requirements), to the reactive, for example responding to a security incident.
Regardless of your starting point, Content+Cloud’s leading Azure and cyber expertise will help you build a secure environment that will keep your data protected.
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.
Draw on extensive Azure and cyber expertise
At Content+Cloud we have a world-class centre of excellence in Azure and our services are ISO 27001-accredited. Our hugely qualified team includes GIAC-certified incident handlers and forensic analysts, and CISM- and CISSP-accredited SOC analysts.
Azure connectivity options to suit you
We can help you select and implement the ideal Azure connectivity solution for your organisation. For example, if you’re seeking the reassurance of private connectivity, we can work with you on establishing an ExpressRoute connection.
Azure security: the foundation of our services
The cloud infrastructure and platform Microsoft provides through Azure meets the highest levels of security – and our Azure security services are no different. Protecting your data is at the core of what we do.

Azure security integrated with Microsoft 365
If you’re using Microsoft 365, the value of Azure security becomes even greater. No other cloud offering can give you the added protection that Azure does. As a Microsoft partner with expertise across all its cloud technologies, we can help you maximise the security that Azure brings to your who
- Integrated identity and access management – a single user directory and security model with conditional access to Microsoft 365 resources
- Better protection for your information in SharePoint, Teams, email and more
- Microsoft Secure Score – actionable insights to your security level across Microsoft 365 and Azure
- Enterprise-grade application security with AAD applications and the Microsoft Graph
Secure and reliable Azure connectivity
Whether you connect to Azure via public or private connection, you’ll benefit from the highest attention to security from Microsoft and in our services. We understand, however, that some clients require the additional assurance that private Azure connectivity provides.
Our ExpressRoute consultancy will help you achieve this by connecting your on-premises networks to the Microsoft cloud via a dedicated private connection, facilitated by a connection partner and managed as part of our service. As well as the exclusive connection, ExpressRoute gives you dependability and speed, delivering lower latency than a typical Internet connection and bandwidths of up to 100 Gbps.Let us know more about your Azure connectivity requirements
