Join DivvyCloud at Microsoft Ignite 2018 and answer the question we are asking all attendees: “Where do you need guardrails?”

DivvyCloud mitigates risk by providing virtual guardrails for security, compliance, and governance to customers embracing the self-service nature of public cloud, and container infrastructure. Customers like General Electric, Discovery Communications, and Fannie Mae run DivvyCloud’s software to achieve continuous security governance in cloud and container environments (Azure, AWS, GCP, Alibaba, and Kubernetes).  

Microsoft Ignite is a great place for us to meet interesting people like you who are doing amazing things with Microsoft Azure.  We’d love to learn more about your Azure goals, plans, and challenges, and share our vision of how automation can make it a lot easier to securely operate Azure environments.  

Have questions about security and compliance in Azure?  Schedule a time to speak with our Azure experts at booth #240 on September 24th-28th to get the answers.  

If you haven’t attended before, Microsoft Ignite is designed to bring together the cloud computing community to connect, collaborate, and learn about Azure. Check out the sessions we recommend to further your Azure security and compliance knowledge:

  1. Azure Kubernetes Service and containers with Brendan Burns
  2. Microsoft security: How the cloud helps us all be more secure
  3. Secure your resources in Azure with Azure Security Center

The DivvyCloud Azure Advantage: Customers with Microsoft Azure (and other cloud technologies) can leverage a single management platform for event-driven, self-healing cloud infrastructure.

Consistent Policy Enforcement: DivvyCloud automation Bot’s work within our unified data model and therefore can enforce security, cost, and performance policies consistently across different Azure deployments (as well as other clouds).

Multi-Cloud Taxonomy: Organize assets in new ways by leveraging DivvyCloud resource groups with auto-curation capabilities. Resource groups are a many-to-many relationship that can contain resources from multiple Azure subscriptions and any other supported cloud technology such as AWS, VMware or OpenStack. They enable IT and stakeholders to better organize and delegate permissions to cloud and application resources.

Unified Experience: Reduce the complexities and barriers to entry when switching users between Microsoft Azure and other popular cloud technologies such as Amazon Web Services and Google Compute Engine. Our unified experience does the heavy lifting for stakeholders. With DivvyCloud all clouds look and feel the same making it easier for end-users to focus the compute, storage and networking resources they require.

Scheduled Instances: There’s a great deal of waste with resources running on a 24x7x365 basis. Oftentimes, development, QA, and staging compute instances are required only during business hours and/or can be suspended entirely during the weekend/holidays. Using DivvyCloud’s Scheduled Instances Bot, customers can define custom stop/start schedules that can cut dramatically down their monthly bills. By coupling the feature with resource groups, we can easily define different schedules for production, development, or specific project teams as needed.

Provisioning Templates: Reduce the steps required for users to provision the compute power they need for their day-to-day tasks. Provisioning templates provide point-and-click access to compute instances and can be shared amongst users in the organization. Template authors can define optional overrides as well, allowing the user to personalize a standard template while remaining in compliance.

Instance Auditing: Identify and even prevent end-users from spinning up excess compute capacity by defining blacklisted instance types. Custom policies can be enforced per Azure subscription making it easy for administrators to keep a handle on cloud cost across their cloud environments.

Disparate Resource Notification: Too often end-users mistakenly provision in regions that aren’t used for your product/service. You can now easily prevent this resulting not only in cost reduction but bolstering corporate security posture by eliminating unknown entry points into the cloud.
