Kolkata, Oct 4 : Continuing its endeavor to build a secure and trusted cloud ecosystem, Microsoft has rolled the Trusted Cloud Tour.

A year-long program designed to help organizations build trust and a comprehensive information security strategy, the Microsoft Trusted Cloud Tour will be a combination of multi-city and virtual sessions that will touch over 150 enterprises across the country. Microsoft also announced the general availability of Azure Sentinel, a cloud-native security information and event management (SIEM) system in India.

“Cloud-based services and mobile computing have changed the technology landscape for the modern enterprise. As companies embrace the opportunities presented by cloud innovation and mobile computing to enhance customer experiences, increase productivity, and optimize operations, their digital journey accelerates. With traditional IT boundaries disappearing, building a trusted IT ecosystem takes planning, time and commitment for organizations to get it right. ” said Keshav Dhakad, Group Head & Assistant General Counsel, Corporate, External & Legal Affairs (CELA), Microsoft India, commenting on the two announcements.

The Microsoft Trusted Cloud Tour aims to support enterprises to enhance trust in their services and build a cybersecurity strategy in the era of flux and transformation. The tour will culminate in the first annual Microsoft CISO Awards which will recognize best practices across industries at the end of the fiscal year.

Microsoft has also made Azure Sentinel - a cloud-native SIEM that provides intelligent security analytics at cloud scale for enterprises of all sizes and workloads - now generally available.

Azure Sentinel helps empower SecOps teams to keep their organizations safe by harnessing the power, simplicity and extensibility of Azure to analyze data from Microsoft 365 and security solutions from other vendors. (UNI)
