Key Benefits

  • Continuous Azure Security
  • Continuous Azure Compliance
  • OS Hardening and Security Baselining
  • Supports enterprise multi-cloud and hybrid strategy (e.g. hybrid cloud azure)

Cavirin is committed to Azure security supporting asset discovery and continuous analysis in support of OS Hardening across Azure for both Linux and Windows workloads.  Examples of OS Hardening capabilities include locking down filesystems to avoid the potential of running malicious software, checking critical files for alterations, shutting down unneeded services like web, or ensuring that the server can’t forward data across multiple interfaces.  Continuous monitoring helps to identify failed attempts to gain privileged access or creation of certain files, evidence that the system is under active attack. 

We are also working to develop Azure cloud hardening benchmarks, much like that which exist for AWS and that we’ve developed for Google Cloud Platform.  Given Azure’s wide set of capabilities, Cavirin’s agentless architecture is well suited to the service.  This is coupled with Azure compliance capabilities, matched by Cavirin’s deep expertise in this space to reduce risk for companies requiring PCI, HIPAA, and other guidelines.  For more details on the types of Azure workloads and how Cavirin addresses challenges in securing them, check out the blog “Securing Modern Workloads.”

Microsoft Azure's Shared Responsibility Model

Azure Security - Enterprises adopting Azure have the same shared security responsibilities as with other cloud service providers, that while Microsoft manages security of the cloud, security in the cloud is the responsibility of the the customer (that's where we can help).  

Cavirin provides security management across physical, public, and hybrid clouds, supporting AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, VMware, KVM, and Docker.
