Microsoft Azure Data Protection – Implementation


“The publication, investigating the matter, found that 587,000 files were left in an unprotected Azure blob. Any malicious actors that knew where to look would have been able to find and access the database with ease, it was said.”

Once the Azure Cloud Data Protection assessment and strategy is finalised, we provide a complete walkthrough and guidance for the data protection control implementation. We also provide resources with technical capabilities in implementing the data protection controls and technologies for your Azure Cloud Environment. Based on your needs and regulatory requirements, we will design and implement the data protection plan as per the strategic roadmap. Our implementation capabilities include but not restricted to the below illustrated Data Protection controls:

Data Discovery
in Azure Cloud

Azure Key

Data Classification

Microsoft Azure - Data Protection Controls

CASB/Data Loss Prevention for Azure

PKI in Azure

Azure Certificate Management

Azure Data Protection Implementation Benefits:

Microsoft Azure Data Protection Implementation

Our Implementation Approach :


Azure Discovery

Data at rest scans will be performed across Azure Cloud environment to identify sensitive data and develop Data Flow Diagrams (DFD), Inventory

Triple DES Encryption (DB)

Databases are protected through a FIPS 140-2 validated encryption module using TripleDES since Azure Web Apps does not support AES256

Disk - Level Encryption

Static data residing on Azure storages can be protected through Azure Disk Encryption for virtual machines and virtual machine scale sets


Authenticating Endpoints

Data sources and destinations are verified along with validation of human or process pings using Microsoft identity platform and OAuth 2.0 authorization

Cloud DLP

Data in transit can be protected by implementing CASB solution in cloud and also by protecting endpoint machines with Endpoint DLP. We evaluate and implement appropriate vendor for your environment

Network Traffic Encryption

Encryption is done in the transport and network layer. Azure VPN gateway and Key Vault can be configured to manage keys and certificates


Field - Level Encryption

Always Encrypted Wizard column level encryption can be implemented to protect dynamic web sensitive data while meeting compliance requirements

Application Layer Security

Application Layer Security will be taken care by implanting Identity and Access Control, Firewall rules, vulnerability management etc.

Tokenization & Obfuscation

Our experts will implement Tokenization and Obfuscation to protect highly critical sensitive data stored in Azure cloud. This ensures compliance with GDPR

Expected Outcome:

With the successful implementation of the Azure cloud Data Protection service provided by us, you would be able to deploy robust and secure applications on the cloud without any hassles or worry. It is based on the industry best practices and promises operational efficiency, reliability, performance excellence, security and cost optimization. During implementation we would be providing a walkthrough document, various technical manuals and maintenance guidelines. With the complete package of assessment, Strategy and Implementation – you will have a bird eye view of your infrastructure and technical landscape as well as complete documented steps of securitization and modernization. Our endgame is to make your cloud environment risk free and high yielding.
