Reduce research time for cloud adoption strategy in Azure with new assessment tools. There’s often a lot of room for optimization when you start to move your services to the cloud. Matt McSpirit, Microsoft Azure expert, joins Jeremy Chapman to show you how to build solutions the right way, with the least amount of trial and error.

Assessment tools can make it easier to find what you need to build or host your workloads in Azure with the right SLAs and help you to assess and close gaps on skill sets, stakeholder support, business KPIs and budget targets. We’ve packaged up the learning we’ve seen working with organizations. There are common patterns where your adoption strategy for the business can start to break down, and conversely, where they succeed. We’ve used these insights to inform our assessments which are part of our Cloud Adoption Framework — and they are completely free to use.

The Cloud Adoption Strategy Evaluator – look at your current strategy and get broad recommendations as you make the case for building cloud-based solutions

Azure Well-Architected Review – assess things like the reliability, cost management, operational excellence, security and performance efficiency of your workloads

The Cloud Journey Tracker – find the best cloud adoption path based on your needs

Developer Velocity – guidance to boost business performance with your developers

The Governance Benchmark – identify gaps in your organizations current state of governance

Strategic Migration Assessment and Readiness Tool – prepare for large scale cloud migrations

Connect to space satellites around the world and bring earth observational data into Azure for analytics via Microsoft and partner ground stations.

Apoorva Nori, from the Azure Space team, joins host Jeremy Chapman to take a first look at the Azure Orbital preview. We’ll show you how it works and how it fits into Microsoft’s strategy with Azure Space to bring cloud connectivity everywhere on earth and to make space satellite data accessible for everyday use cases.

Azure Space marks the convergence between global satellite constellations and the cloud. As the two join together, our purpose is to bring cloud connectivity to even the most remote corners of the earth and connect to satellites and harness the vast amount of data collected from space. This can help solve both long-term trending issues affecting the earth like climate change, or short-term real-time issues such as connected agriculture, monitoring and controlling wildfires, or identifying supply chain bottlenecks.

Reduce the operational costs of stateless workloads by using Azure Spot Virtual Machines. When compute capacity in Azure frees up, and depending on where you need it, Azure will provision your VM workload on unused compute capacity. Spot VMs are then evicted when Azure needs capacity back or when the current price of using the spot VM is higher than the price threshold you may have specified. This results in considerable discounts. And although the price of your Spot VM will vary based on the amount of unused capacity in Azure, across different VM sizes, and in different Azure regions, you may achieve up to 90% savings compared to pay-as-you-go pricing.

Rob Lefferts, Microsoft Security CVP, joins Jeremy Chapman to show you the latest integrative defenses and tools to respond quickly in the context of a real attack.

The threat landscape has reached a new level of urgency, whether it's human operated ransomware, or sophisticated command and control attacks, and the techniques being used are getting harder to detect — like supply chain attacks that embed malware in the apps and IoT devices that you trust. Stop these types of attacks with the right measures and preparation.

Put the right defense layers in place with the Zero Trust security model.

Increase your organization's ability to detect and respond before an attack does any damage.

If the damage has already started, contain the blast radius and quickly reverse any damage that has already been done.

Protect data across your files and content, as well as structured and unstructured data wherever it resides, with the Zero Trust security model. As always, the approach applies the principles of verify explicitly, least privileged access, and assume breach. Jeremy Chapman, Director of Microsoft 365, highlights how you can apply Zero Trust security to keep your data protected.

With Zero Trust, protections are designed to follow your data wherever it resides, whether that's in your infrastructure or in the services that you manage. Protections continue as data flows and people work together with sensitive information. Information can also be protected from leaks by people inside of your organization or from people who should not have access. With the right protections in place, you can protect data if your devices are infected with malware, and you can also block and prevent data access in the case of a data breach. The good news is you can extend protections at a granular level, from your databases and individual data fields, to sensitive words within your databases, and trigger words while using apps.

Steps to protect your data:
Identify top sensitive information
Apply labels and classifiers
Apply principle of least privilege and assume breach

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.
