While at HIMSS18, Project Hosts was almost overwhelmed with the number of healthcare IT organizations looking for help with their Azure subscriptions. Fortunately, they have a staff of Azure Experts who can architect, customize and secure such environments. By leveraging Azure tools and products, Project Hosts is able to maximize an organization’s Azure investment in improved configuration, performance, uptime and reliability.
The leading topic of Azure cloud environment conversation has been security. Project Hosts has a “Top 14” list of security elements that they implement above Azure. (See image below.) At the top of that list is Access Control. Your environment is isolated using Azure Virtual Networks before Azure Network Security Groups (NSGs) are implemented so that the servers can only access servers that they need to. Azure Automation is used to monitor NSGs and alert any changes. Access points are limited using DMZ with Web Application Firewall, as well as Web App Proxies (WAPs) and RDGs. Users are then authorized and roles are given in Active Directory.
Microsoft Azure is an exceptional cloud platform. It allows organizations to move on-premises solutions into a more cost-effective, high performance and scalable cloud. For many companies, ensuring that their Azure deployment is fully secured and complies with their required security standards and policies is vital to protect their business assets, data and employees. And that is what Project Hosts does best.
