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.

Common misconfiguration and vulnerabilities found in Azure environment

Weak Access Controls

Inadequate access management or overly permissive access policies can lead to unauthorised users gaining access to resources.

Unencrypted Data

Data stored or transmitted without encryption can be intercepted by attackers.

Outdated Software and Configurations

Using outdated or unpatched software, libraries, or configurations can introduce vulnerabilities.

Misconfigured Security Settings

Incorrectly configured security settings can expose resources to threats or allow unintended access. The slightest misconfiguration can cost you a lot.

 

Lack of Monitoring and Incident Response

Inadequate monitoring and incident response mechanisms can delay threat detection and response.

Inadequate Identity and Access Management (IAM)

Poorly managed identities, such as weak passwords or lack of multi-factor authentication (MFA), can lead to unauthorised access.

Data Exfiltration Risk

Insufficient data loss prevention (DLP) measures may expose sensitive data to exfiltration.

Vulnerabilities in Virtual Machines (VMs)

Unpatched or misconfigured VMs can be vulnerable to any critical vulnerability that can cause data breaches and other issues.

Insufficient Network Security

Weak network security settings or improperly configured firewalls can expose your environment to network-based attacks.

Compliance Gaps

Failure to adhere to industry-specific regulations and compliance standards.
