When companies endeavor to move their applications and services to the cloud, they tend to worry more about security up front. Interestingly, platforms such as Azure provide an even more secure environment than most self-managed co-location facilities can hope to offer, not to mention the plethora of features on the platform that help you secure your solutions end to end. In this session Michele will review the mini-avalanche that comprises Azure security across all features. Taking the architect's view of the platform, she'll cover best practices for securing Azure solutions end to end and discuss the tangential benefits of...
Azure can help customers move to the cloud with confidence by providing a trusted foundation, demonstrating compliance with security standards, and making strong commitments to safeguard the privacy of customer data.
The Following presentation will educate you in the fundamentals of Azure security as they pertain to the Cortana Analytics Suite:
Azure AD B2C Basic is a new service built on the Azure AD platform that helps you stay connected with your consumers. It is an enterprise grade, multi-tenant cloud service that supports authentication with top consumer identity services like Facebook and Google (and soon Microsoft Account). Additionally Microsoft have made it easy for you to store and manage hundreds of millions of consumer identities in a secure, reliable, scalable, cost effective service. And like the rest of Azure AD, it is open standards based and cross platform making it easy to add modern identity and security capabilities to your...
New feature provides a birds eye for your directory and is the one place to manage all of your services. It also makes it easy for you to keep up with new features and events:
Access to virtual machines when running them on-premises is easy – just RDP into a VM over your local network.
Microsoft have been doing that for years and not much has changed, other than the fact that the RDP protocol is a lot more secure and more performant than it was years ago.
Microsoft seen that many of their Customers are looking for a way to collect and analyze security (and other) logs in Azure.
Analysis of these logs can provide Customers with a ton of useful information and insight into their current security posture.
Armed with this information, they will be able to detect security issues in your Azure environment and be able to take action based on that information.
an update on a number of new security capabilities Microsoft added to Azure AD Premium over the last few weeks.
These show up now as part of the existing Azure AD Privileged Identity Management preview in the new Azure management portal.

Row-Level Security (RLS) for SQL Database is now generally available.
RLS enables you to store data for many users in a single database and table, while at the same time restricting row-level access based on a user’s identity, role, or execution context. RLS centralizes access logic within the database itself, which simplifies and reduces the risk of error in your application code.
The Azure Storage Client Library for .NET contains functionality to help developers encrypt data inside client applications before uploading to Azure Storage, and to decrypt data while downloading. The library also supports integration with Azure Key Vault for storage account key management.
Seth Juarez from Microsoft's Developer Evangelism Team was joined by Chris Stoneff, VP of Technical Management from Lieberman Software, where he discussed and demonstrated how the Enterprise Random Password Manager (ERPM) from Lieberman Software works in concert with Microsoft Azure to eliminate static and shared credentials for both on-premises and cloud infrastructure - resulting in drastic reduction of attack surface and significant improvement in security.
