See how you can apply Zero Trust principles and policies to your endpoints and apps; the conduits for users to access your data, network, and resources. Jeremy Chapman walks through your options, controls, and recent updates to implement the Zero Trust security model.

Our Essentials episode gave a high-level overview of the principles of the Zero Trust security model, spanning identity, endpoints, applications, networks, infrastructure, and data. For Zero Trust, endpoints refer to the devices people use every day — both corporate or personally owned computers and mobile devices. The prevalence of remote work means devices can be connected from anywhere and the controls you apply should be correlated to the level of risk at those endpoints. For corporate managed endpoints that run within your firewall or your VPN, you will still want to use principles of Zero Trust: Verify explicitly, apply least privileged access, and assume breach.

We've thought about the endpoint attack vectors holistically and have solutions to help you protect your endpoints and the resources that they're accessing.

Take a closer look at how the Power Platform can be used for professional developers’ most demanding business apps. Per Mikkelsen, GPM for Microsoft Power Platform, joins host Jeremy Chapman to share how you can build APIs as serverless functions, integrate Power Apps as part of your CI/CD pipelines, and publish Power Apps to Microsoft Teams for increased discoverability.

The Power Platform is designed for any app and any developer. We've set out to remove a lot of the pain in the software development process and speed things up that can take a lot of time. This makes it simple to build new apps or extend existing apps, fast.

Most of what you need to build your UI and to integrate your business logic and workflow processes can be done by the Power Platform. It sits on top of Dataverse to give you a powerful and managed data backend for any data, so that you have common data and logic stack that all your apps and services can use. On top of that, we give you all 400 data connectors, which seamlessly connect with the barrier systems and services that you may have in your organization. And if you need more custom logic on the backend, you also have all the coding environments available in Azure.

Tour your identity options when moving to the Zero Trust security model. Our last Essentials episode gave a high-level overview of the Zero Trust security model principles: identity, endpoints, applications, networks, infrastructure, and data.

Join our host, Jeremy Chapman, as he unpacks the foundational layer of the model with identity. As the primary control plane for Zero Trust, it acts as the front door for people, service accounts, and devices as each requests access to resources. Identity is at the core of the Zero Trust concepts of never trust, always verify and grant the appropriate level of access through the principle of least privilege.

Verify Explicitly
Azure AD - easily implement additional protections to verify explicitly
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) - requires an additional authentication factor. Replace passwords with Microsoft Authenticator, Windows Hello, or FIDO2 keys.
Activity reports in the Authentication methods - see who’s capable of MFA and passwordless authentication, how many recent registrations and by type.
Usage - see the distribution of MFA sign-ins and by method, as well as the number of password changes and resets.

Least Privilege access
Conditional Access in Azure AD - uses real-time intelligence at the time of sign-in to assess the risk level, then blocks or grants access.
Built-in Insights and Reporting - expose the impact of enabled policies pre- and post enforcement.

Adopt a Zero Trust approach for security and benefit from the core ways in which Microsoft can help. In the past, your defenses may have been focused on protecting network access with on-premises firewalls and VPNs, assuming everything inside the network was safe. But as corporate data footprints have expanded to sit outside your corporate network, to live in the Cloud or a hybrid across both, the Zero Trust security model has evolved to address a more holistic set of attack vectors.

Based on the principles of “verify explicitly”, “apply least privileged access” and “always assume breach”, Zero Trust establishes a comprehensive control plane across multiple layers of defense:

Identity: Azure Active Directory assigns identity and conditional access controls for your people, the service accounts used for apps and processes, and your devices.

Endpoints: Microsoft Endpoint Manager assures devices and their installed apps meet your security and compliance policy requirements

Applications: Microsoft Endpoint Manager can be used to configure and enforce policy management. Microsoft Cloud App Security can discover and manage Shadow IT services in use.

Network: Get a number of controls, including Network Segmentation, Threat protection, and Encryption.

Infrastructure: Azure landing zones, Blueprints and Policies can ensure newly deployed infrastructure meets compliance requirements for cloud resources. Azure Security Center and Log Analytics help with configuration and software update management for on-premises, cross-cloud and cross-platform infrastructure. Data Limit data access to only the people and processes that need it.

Explore your options to select the right VMs for your workloads. On this episode of Azure Essentials, Matt McSpirit shares core compute and disk storage options for any workload you want to run in Azure.

If you're new to Azure, shifting your apps or workloads onto a virtual machine or multiple VMs in Azure can be achieved without rearchitecting them or writing new code. You can even deploy your workloads to Azure Dedicated Hosts that provide single tenant physical servers dedicated to your organization. Azure literally becomes the equivalent of running your physical data center in the cloud.

The primary benefit of running your apps and workloads in Azure is choice. Azure provides a comprehensive range of hundreds of VMs to deliver the scale and performance needed across your preferred Linux distros and Windows Server based applications.

Select the right VMs for your workloads: From entry-level to optimized, depending on the workload

Deployment: Download images from the Azure Marketplace, or deploy your own

Scale: Create thousands of virtual machines using Azure Virtual Machines Scale Sets.

Pay for what you consume: Bring existing and future Windows and SQL server licenses, Red Hat enterprise Linux, and SUSE licenses into Azure using the Azure Hybrid Benefit.
