Microsoft Azure Data Protection Service

Azure is a leading cloud service provider offering compute service along with networking, data management, databases and performance. With the inclusion of site-to-site replication and data recovery to VM and Zone Redundant Storage (ZRS), Azure has grown significantly over the years. Currently, the growth has been observed at a rate more than 50%. Azure’s parent company Microsoft is no stranger to threats and cyber attacks. With Azure’s stupendous amount of services and customer base, there is an imminent threat of data breach and loss. Hence, making it all the more important to put Data Protection mechanism at place.

Organizations utilizing Azure web services and applications are responsible for securing their sensitive and critical data stored in the cloud.

Azure provides easy deployment and management of its IT operations; however, a challenge is that mistakes can happen and cascade to a bigger impact. For instance, the misconfiguration of a data store can expose sensitive information such as personally

  • Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
  • Payment Card Industry (PCI) data or Protected Health Information (PHI)

The firm has since closed off the access to the database and has begun to notify affected customers. Encryption Consulting LLC will help your organization with its expertise in Cloud platforms and security services in deploying data protection controls in your Azure Cloud environment.
