Overview of Azure Security Configuration Assessment Services
Our team of experienced cybersecurity professionals will conduct a thorough assessment of emerging threats in your Azure environment, including:
- Security controls: We will review your security controls to ensure they are adequate and effective.
- Configuration: We will review your Azure configuration to identify and address any potential security vulnerabilities.
- Threat monitoring: We will assess your capabilities to ensure you can quickly detect and respond to security incidents.
The Shared Responsibility Model within Azure environment
Understanding the shared responsibility model is key to securing your Azure platform. Microsoft Azure follows a shared responsibility model, where the responsibility for security is divided between Microsoft (the cloud service provider) and the customer (you).
Microsoft is responsible for the cloud’s security, while its customers are responsible for the security of the cloud by avoiding bad practices.
- Security Controls: Microsoft Azure provides a range of security controls and tools to secure the underlying infrastructure, such as physical data centres, networks, and the Azure platform itself.
- Azure Security Review: Cyphere’s Azure Cloud Security Review Services focus on the customer’s responsibility, ensuring that the customer’s applications and data hosted on Azure are configured securely, access is controlled, and vulnerabilities are addressed.

Key Benefits of Azure Security Review
This thorough assessment ensures that every potential security gap is addressed, providing you with a clear picture of your Azure Cloud security posture.
This proactive approach minimises the chances of security incidents and sensitive data exposure, reducing your organisation’s exposure to financial and reputational damage.
Investing in Cyphere’s services is a cost-effective strategy, as it helps you avoid the financial burden of responding to security incidents, fines, and potential legal liabilities.
Our in-depth knowledge of regulatory frameworks, such as GDPR, HIPAA, and SOC 2, ensures that your organisation remains in compliance while leveraging Azure’s capabilities.
Customers are more likely to trust your organisation with their sensitive data and valuable transactions when they know you prioritise security. This trust translates into stronger business relationships and increased competitiveness.
Cyphere highlights potential issues and provide guidance and recommendations for remediation. This empowers your organisation to stay one step ahead of emerging threats, adapting your security posture as the threat and cyber attack landscape evolves.
Cyphere’s services are scalable and adaptable, ensuring that your security measures keep pace with your Azure environment’s growth. Whether you’re using hybrid environments, adding new services or virtual machines or scaling up existing ones, we help you maintain a strong security posture.
By partnering with Cyphere, you gain access to security consultants with a wealth of knowledge and expertise, allowing you to make informed decisions and implement best practices in your Azure environment.
Common misconfiguration and vulnerabilities found in Azure environment
Inadequate access management or overly permissive access policies can lead to unauthorised users gaining access to resources.
Data stored or transmitted without encryption can be intercepted by attackers.
Using outdated or unpatched software, libraries, or configurations can introduce vulnerabilities.
Incorrectly configured security settings can expose resources to threats or allow unintended access. The slightest misconfiguration can cost you a lot.
Inadequate monitoring and incident response mechanisms can delay threat detection and response.
Poorly managed identities, such as weak passwords or lack of multi-factor authentication (MFA), can lead to unauthorised access.
Insufficient data loss prevention (DLP) measures may expose sensitive data to exfiltration.
Unpatched or misconfigured VMs can be vulnerable to any critical vulnerability that can cause data breaches and other issues.
Weak network security settings or improperly configured firewalls can expose your environment to network-based attacks.
Failure to adhere to industry-specific regulations and compliance standards.
