Why Managed Cloud Security Is Important For Your Business

As more and more data and network infrastructure is moved onto cloud platforms, securing those platforms becomes ever more important.  

Many businesses think that as they are relying on a third-party cloud services provider like Microsoft Azure or Amazon AWS, the provider will be taking care of all the security. However, this isn’t quite accurate.

Why Multi Factor Authentication Is Important For Your Business Security 

A complex and long password full of random numbers or letters used to be considered the height of cybersecurity – but even the strongest password isn’t much use if someone else tricks you into revealing it. The purpose of password security isn’t to test your brain’s ability to remember a collection of obscure symbols, it’s to validate your identity as the correct owner of the account. To this end, Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) is a far superior way of proving that you are who you say you are.

What Is Access Control And Why Is It Important? 

With an ever-increasing amount of IT infrastructure now hosted in the cloud and protected by the security teams of some of the world’s biggest service providers like Amazon, Microsoft and Google, the primary focus for data security is now access control. For example, while the security of your assets in the cloud is normally the responsibility of your chosen cloud service provider, the responsibility of securing the access to your cloud assets rests with you.

How Windows Virtual Desktops Are Changing The Way New York Businesses Think About Computing 

Windows virtual desktops, also known as Azure virtual desktops are a form of hosted desktop provided by Microsoft and running on their Azure cloud platform.

Hosted desktops run “in the cloud”, meaning on a server off-premises, rather than on your local machine. As the user, you then access the desktop from your local machine over an internet connection. As well as “hosted desktops” and “virtual desktops”, these are also known as a Desktop as a Service or DaaS.
