Why cloud security services?

Cloud computing has created seemingly endless opportunities for companies to access the latest IT innovations, bring new applications to market at speed, and scale services according to their needs. But with opportunity comes a certain amount of risk: As the underpinning cloud technology evolves, becoming more advanced with each iteration, so, too, do the threats posed to companies’ cloud security.

In today’s fluid, fast-evolving threat environment, companies face increasingly difficult challenges to adequately protect their assets while maintaining an accessible and transparent user experience. Cloud security managed services is the answer to those challenges — a strategic reference architecture for securing and monitoring all critical workloads both on-premises and in the cloud, all built on a Zero Trust security model.

What is Zero Trust?

In today’s modern workplace, employees are no longer tethered to their desks — or their desktop devices. Instead, work can take place from any device, anywhere in the world. Though this boundless flexibility offers numerous benefits in terms of productivity and performance gains, employee retention, and enterprise profitability, it also necessitates a perimeter-less approach to cloud security.

Enter the Zero Trust model: Built on the principles of frequent authentication and authorization across all data points, least privileged access, and proactive threat detection and response, Zero Trust cloud security services offer comprehensive coverage for identities, endpoints, apps, data, infrastructure, and networks.

What You Get with Hitachi Solutions

When you make Hitachi Solutions your Microsoft cloud security provider of choice, you gain a new security model based on Zero Trust principles that effectively adapts to the complexity of a modern environment, embraces the hybrid workplace model, and protects people, devices, apps, and data wherever they’re located.

We’ll assess the Zero Trust maturity of your organization, conducting a thorough assessment of your existing security architecture to identify risks and vulnerabilities across the following six solution areas using the Never Trust, Always Verify Zero Trust approach:

  • Identity and Access Management
    Unlock efficiency gains by consolidating your identity infrastructure using Azure Active Directory (AD) and managing all identities and application access from a central location, either in the cloud or on-premises. We’ll use Azure AD and conditional access tools to help you secure your users, service accounts, and devices, making it harder for attackers to acquire and use stolen credentials.
  • Endpoints
    Make your support staff more efficient by providing visibilities into which devices are accessing your network and ensuring compliance before you grant access. We’ll implement Microsoft Endpoint Manager — an effective and flexible platform — so you can improve compliance, monitor and remediate potentially risky activity, and safely enable productive work for employees using multiple devices across multiple locations.
  • Applications
    Easily monitor and protect workloads across multi-cloud and hybrid environments — we’ll show you how to use Shadow IT discovery to control access with real-time analytics and monitoring. By integrating with Microsoft Defender tools, you can uncover and identify risky usage and potential exfiltration. Users can make better use of their time, unencumbered by security and compliance concerns because they’re always protected.
  • Data
    Safeguard data at rest to maintain confidentiality, integrity, and availability across all workloads. Azure data storage enables massive scaling, modern access through REST APIs, and isolation between tenants. We’ll show you how to use the Microsoft Defender for Cloud toolset in Azure to automatically classify data in Azure SQL and implement controls to prevent improper use and sharing during user sessions.
  • Network
    Reduce your total cost of ownership related to security infrastructure by reducing the burden on IT to manage networks and upgrades. We’ll work with you to move beyond traditional network security with micro-segmentation, real-time threat detection, and end-to-end encryption. Using Microsoft cloud security tools, you can lessen your exposure to brute force attacks by hardening your network and preventing unnecessary access.
  • Infrastructure
    End the struggle of assessing, preventing, enforcing, and governing privileged access and permissions across your hybrid and multi-cloud environments. We’ll help you right-size permissions and consistently enforce least-privilege principles to reduce risk and, at the same tie, employ continuous analytics to help prevent security breaches and ensure compliance.
