Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Best Practices: Architecting Security for Microsoft Azure VMs

Do you know if your workloads are secure? Do you have the same security and compliance coverage across all of the cloud platforms and datacenters running your critical applications? Are you having to design your security framework each time you deploy to a new region or datacentre?

Whether you’re working with multiple cloud environments or exclusively on Azure, there are certain things you should consider when moving assets to Azure. As with any cloud deployment, security is a top priority, and moving your workloads to the cloud doesn’t mean you’re not responsible for the security of your operating system, applications and data. Building on the security of the Azure infrastructure, this shared security responsibility starts with making sure your Azure environment is secure.

Register for this impactful webinar as we discuss step-by-step what you need to do to secure access at the administrative, application and network layers.

In this webinar, we will take a look at:
• The Shared Security Model: What security you are responsible for to protect your content, application, systems and networks
• Best practices for how to protect your environment from the latest threats
• Learn how traditional security approaches may have limitations in the cloud
• How to build a scalable secure cloud infrastructure on Azure

  • The 7 Secrets of Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Mar 16 2021 4:00 pm UTC 64 mins
    Antonio Sanchez, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Alert Logic
    Every year consists of constant change and 2020 is no exception. There is the constant change in the threat landscape, change in IT environments, and change in the form of new technologies and vendors which leads to confusion and complexity. The reality is no level of investment prevents or blocks 100% of attacks. Therefore, organizations must continuously identify and address breaches before they cause real damage but they are typically hampered with either limited budget and/or expertise.

    Join Antonio Sanchez from Alert Logic as he discusses Managed Detection and Response (MDR). This new approach is gaining rapid traction for being able to achieve enterprise-class security while simplifying operations. Topics discussed during this session include:

    - Understanding MDR
    - Aligning to the NIST framework
    - Seven MDR Must-Have’s
  • Cloud Transformation: It’s a marathon not a sprint {Ep 4 of 4] Mar 9 2021 5:00 pm UTC 36 mins
    Dan Webb, VP of Partner Sales & Alliance, and Dan Pitman, Principal Security Architect
    Part 4 of 4

    The cloud transformation journey is an on-going one of refinement and optimization.

    Organizations with a cloud-first or cloud-mature approach will find a drive to business and operational scale brings about complexity and increasing responsibilities across hybrid, SaaS, and PaaS workloads.

    This diversity of technologies and delivery models can significantly hamper efficiency and optimization gains as well as introduce security risks that can affect the bottom line.

    During this webcast we'll discuss:

    Proper preparation for the complexity of scale 
    Maintaining security whilst accelerating growth
    Real-world examples of how to refine your security operations

    At the conclusion of the session, you'll walk away with understanding how maintaining security at the core of your cloud transformation will enable growth, scale and expansion of your business.
  • Cloud Transformation: Keeping up the pace [Ep 3 of 4] Mar 4 2021 5:00 pm UTC 36 mins
    Dan Webb, VP of Partner Sales & Alliance, and Dan Pitman, Principal Security Architect
    Part 3 of 4: 

    The value of being in the cloud in the first place is clear; cost savings and efficiencies in key areas can be achieved quickly, if done right. But that is where the race for modernization with your competitors starts.

    Digital and cloud transformation in a competitive market requires a velocity of change that inherently adds risk if the maturity of security processes and delivery is not able to match that velocity.

    During this webcast, we'll explore how your business can fully leverage the cloud to drive modernization of applications and business models by also modernizing your security capabilities.

    At the conclusion of the session, you'll walk away with some key steps you can take to enable modernization.
  • Cloud Transformation: Jumping the migration hurdle [Ep 2 of 4] Recorded: Mar 2 2021 32 mins
    Dan Webb, VP of Partner Sales & Alliance, and Dan Pitman, Principal Security Architect
    Part 2 of 4: 

    The first step is always the hardest; migrating from traditional infrastructure to cloud is a transformation that presents significant opportunities for success or failure.

    The cloud is an opportunity to improve security posture and processes significantly. Yet all too often security is an afterthought, secondary to application and infrastructure considerations, rather than considered an integral part.

    During this webcast, we'll explore the strategic role security plays in your first step towards successful cloud transformation, and key considerations when building your cloud migration strategy. 

    At the conclusion of the session, you'll walk away with confidence to take those first steps to the cloud so you can unlock the benefits on offer.
