Secure Data from Cyber-attacks

Azure Security provides a comprehensive view of the cloud and on-premise workloads with MFA, SSH, and RDP ports.

Cybercrime has developed as a result of the greater reliance on digital infrastructure to facilitate remote work. Microsoft spends over $1 billion on cybersecurity each year and has a huge threat intelligence source that processes over eight trillion signals every day. Azure Security Center gives you a comprehensive view of the security condition of all your cloud and on-premises workloads, as well as security advice such as enabling multi-factor authentication (MFA), protecting secure shell (SSH), and remote desktop protocol (RDP) ports, and more.
