Manage your business applications, get a birds-eye view across your organization, and enable improved cloud and on-premises security with custom-made solutions to meet your organization’s needs.

There are many risks associated with remote working with digital security as the primary concern for most organizations. Strategies around how to enable stringent measures needed to be adopted to protect data while maintaining employee productivity.

Microsoft Intune, Azure Sentinel, and Azure Security Center are the perfect solutions to address issues associated with protecting your data and devices regardless of your organization’s size.

Bringing all three solutions together ensures that your organization’s information is protected with custom-made policies and baselines.

Here is a breakdown of the individual solutions:

Microsoft Intune focuses on device management and mobile application management. Streamline and automate deployment, provisioning, policy management, app delivery, and updates. Safeguard data when you don’t manage devices used by your employee’s partners (BYOD) to access work files.


Azure Sentinel enables you to have a birds-eye-view across your organization. Providing security information event management (SIEM) and security orchestration automated response (SOAR). Optimizes your insights, tailored detections, machine learning models, and threat intelligence. 


Azure Security Center enables you to improve your cloud and on-premises (now with Azure Defender) security through continuous assessments and recommendations protecting you against cyberattacks. Simplify enterprise compliance and view your compliance against regulatory requirements.
