Enhancing your Microsoft Azure and Office 365 investment with Symantec

Find out why Microsoft and Symantec are better together

By Symantec

IT EventGetting ready to move infrastructure into the cloud is almost like moving house. You have a garage full of items; but you don’t know what’s important, what to throw out, and what to take with you on your move. You need to do some spring cleaning.

Similarly, investing in Microsoft Azure and Office 365 provides a transformative opportunity to find out what data’s important and how it’s protected.

To start, organisations need to take a look at their information and find out what’s suited to the cloud and what should be kept on-premise. Many organisations treat all data the same, but that can be a costly exercise as it means they often spend too much time protecting the data that’s not necessarily critical. In essence, they’re putting a $10 fence around a $5 horse and not protecting their most valuable data.

This is particularly important given the increasing demands on IT. Unstructured data is growing at a rate of 62 per cent a year, so there’s great pressure for organisations to manage these loads more effectively.

Symantec’s solutions help as they enable organisations to look at an enhanced Microsoft Azure and Office 365 environment. This leads to better decisions about how IT workloads can be managed and protected.

Some of these solutions include …

  • Symantec Email Security. Cloud – valuable for those considering a transition to cloud email and need enhanced security. Provides a state of the art email filtering of viruses, malware and spam for Microsoft 365
  • Symantec Validation and ID protection – delivers strong two-factor authentication in both the Microsoft Azure and Office 365 environments. Important given three quarters of all breaches could have been avoided through multi-factor authentication
  • Symantec Endpoint Protection – ensures that organsiation have advanced endpoint security across the platforms and systems running workloads with the most confidential data. Includes the ability to build IT policies around information irrespective of the IT application and system

Organisations who adopt these solutions enhance their Microsoft Azure and Office 365 investment. Using the moving house analogy, this means they’re best placed to move house without leaving anything valuable behind.
