Azure security and compliance are crucial for enterprises of any size that rely on cloud computing to handle their business processes and customer data. The biggest challenge is ensuring that Azure supports their network security requirements and enables them to adhere to regulatory and industry best practices regarding Azure privacy and data protection.
The challenges of Azure security and compliance
When your business runs on integrated cloud services and Azure AD becomes a central part of your cloud operations, protecting this critical system from unauthorized configuration changes and unwarranted logins is a must-do task. To ensure Azure compliance and security, you need complete visibility into everything that happens in Azure AD, which can be challenging for multiple reasons:
- Preparing all the necessary compliance information into usable reports can take days, because finding and extracting the exact data you need from the audit trail is not an easy task.
- It’s hard to predict what questions an auditor would ask, so you have to be ready to find specific information that is requested in minutes.
- It’s always a headache to figure out where to store your audit trail and securely protect it, while still being able to review events from the past when an auditor knocks at your door.
- You need to quickly spot and chase down suspicious Azure AD activity in order to minimize the risk of identity theft, unauthorized access to critical resources and other threats.
