How to safely develop software in the cloud

The facts show that companies in most of their activities participate in the cloud world, where data protection should be a priority.

There are three aspects to operating safely in cloud environments.

  1. New ability to publish applications – Azure Managed Applications
  2. Cloud security rules – Cloud Adoption Framework CAF
  3. Basic security principles – MFA, Azure Firewall, Azure Lending Zones

Each of the listed elements has been thoroughly explained by our expert, including real examples.

How to act to stay safe

  1. Fast and flexible action is advisable. Remember about the strategy and security by using the CAF (Cloud Adoption Framework) along with its action plan.
  2. Case study. Business pressure on time of solution delivery generates risk. It has an impact on how the organization will be received.
  3. Automated Azure Managed Applications process. Secured resources are attached to the client’s cloud infrastructure. The costs are automatically billed on individual subscription.
  4. Infrastructure as a Code – using Azure DevOps and CI/CD mechanisms as a repeatability of the process and a guarantee of its execution in the production and implementation cycle of the software.
  5. After implementation, periodic audit: rationalization, review of costs, scalability and operational security.
  6. We are as strong as our weakest security in the system.
