    Reduce Operational Costs of Stateless Workloads | Azure Spot Virtual Machines

    Play Episode Listen Later Nov 17, 2021 7:12

    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. ► QUICK LINKS: 00:00 - Introduction 01:54 - Compute options 02:45 - Find the Spot VM right for you 03:30 - Deployment and provisioning options 05:18 - Architect your Spot VM for resilience 06:39 - Wrap up ► Link References: To learn more, check out https://aka.ms/SpotVMOverview Watch our episode about compute options at https://aka.ms/AzureComputeChoices ► Unfamiliar with Microsoft Mechanics?

    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.

    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. ► QUICK LINKS: 00:00 - Introduction 01:16 - Register your endpoints 01:49 - Configure and enforce compliance 02:31 - Search policies with new settings catalog 03:15 - Group Policy analytics 04:00 - Microsoft Defender for Endpoint 04:36 - Microsoft Cloud App Security (MCAS) 06:36 - Reverse proxy 07:06 - Authentication context 08:44 - Anomaly detection policies 09:21 - Wrap up ► Link References: For more on our series, keep checking back to https://aka.ms/ZeroTrustMechanics Watch our Zero Trust Identity episode at https://aka.ms/IdentityMechanics Learn more about the Zero Trust approach at https://aka.ms/zerotrust ► Unfamiliar with Microsoft Mechanics?

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.

    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. ► QUICK LINKS: 00:00 - Introduction 00:37 - Six layers of defense 02:31 - Identity 03:48 - Endpoints 04:48 - Applications 05:46 - Network 06:36 - Infrastructure 07:18 - Data 08:11 - Wrap Up ► Link References: Learn more at https://aka.ms/zerotrust For tips and demonstrations, check out https://aka.ms/ZeroTrustMechanics ► Unfamiliar with Microsoft Mechanics?
