Microsoft Cloud Security for Enterprise Architects

The infrastructure, data, and apps built and run in the cloud are the foundational building blocks for a modern business. No matter where you are in your cloud journey, you likely utilize every layer of the cloud—from infrastructure as a service (IaaS) to platform as a service (PaaS) to software as a service (SaaS). You also may take advantage of services from several cloud and app providers. Many organizations operate a cross-cloud environment, but it can complicate security. A fragmented view of your cloud environment limits opportunities to holistically improve your security posture. It can also lead to missed threats and SecOps burnout.
