Secure your organization—and your customers

Strengthen your security posture and navigate the evolving threat landscape with Microsoft cybersecurity tools and resources.

Adopt an end-to-end Zero Trust security model

With the rise in security threats, and the transition from remote to hybrid work, the Zero Trust framework helps you protect the entire technology ecosystem.

Use least privileged access

Limit user access with just-in-time and just-enough-access (JIT/JEA), risk-based adaptive polices, and data protection to help secure both data and productivity.

Assume breach

Minimize blast radius and segment access. Verify end-to-end encryption and use analytics to get visibility, drive threat detection, and improve defenses.

Implement key security practices

Improve your security posture with five best practices, each paired with Microsoft resources and tools designed to protect you and your customers.

Stay up to date on the security landscape

As security threats and tools continue to evolve, your practices should, too. Learn about cyberattacks and discover how Zero Trust mitigates risk to protect your business. With a variety of trainings, tools, and informative blog posts and videos, Microsoft provides the resources you need to stay in the know.

Get started with a three-part video series on Zero Trust, or watch the Inspire session for actions and resources that help you make your ecosystem more secure.

Security contact responsibilities and guidance

Determine a security contact, an individual or group within your organization who will serve as the point of contact if Microsoft detects a threat. The contact must have an inbox that can be monitored constantly—we recommend using a distribution list—and respond with urgency to investigate and remedy security concerns.

Enforce MFA and manage DAP connections

Multifactor authentication (MFA) is a highly effective security method designed to help prevent unwanted logins. Our best practices help you get started right away, so you can enact MFA for your customers. We’ll also help you monitor customers’ delegated administration privileges (DAP), remove connections that aren’t in use, and transition active DAP connections to granular delegated administration privileges (GDAP).

As you continue to explore the five best practices for stronger security, check out the blog on actions to take on your journey to Zero Trust.

Utilize tools to enhance device security

Elevate the security of your and your customers’ devices. Discover how Microsoft Defender for Endpoint works to stop threats, scale defenses, and evolve your security. Get started with Azure Active Directory Conditional Access policy to take actions that ensure device compliance—such as requiring device encryption or a PIN to unlock.

Detect fraud and manage costs

Keep security sharp by identifying misuse, managing nonpayment, and enabling safeguards against unforeseen spending. Watch for suspicious activity and detect fraud by taking the following actions:

To maximize your security investments, use cost optimization to gain visibility into spending, eliminate waste in cloud-based architecture, and keep track of your cloud resources.
