Secure your workloads in Microsoft Azure with automated
cloud assessment and attack simulation

Challenges of Azure Cloud Security 

To ensure that your cloud workloads in Microsoft Azure are secure, it’s important to assess your environments regularly. Azure cloud attacks occur because organizations fail to follow Microsoft’s Shared Responsibility Model and proactively identify cloud misconfigurations in the services they rely on daily.

Common Azure misconfigurations that can lead to cloud security data breaches include:

Misconfigured IAM policies           Unrestricted access to resources           Insecure data storage

How Picus Help You to Secure AWS

Picus Cloud Security Validation (CSV) helps you to stay on top of cloud security posture management by identifying the two primary causes of data breaches in Azure: cloud misconfigurations and overly permissive IAM policies. 


Azure cloud auditing

Scanning sixteen Azure services, Picus CSV identifies critical cloud misconfigurations that attackers could exploit. These include excessive privileges, exposed S3 buckets, and cryptographic failures.


Azure attack simulation

By simulating privileges escalation scenarios in Azure, Picus CSV identifies overly permissive identity and access management (IAM) policies that could enable attackers to compromise Azure cloud services and steal data.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Azure Cloud Security?


Azure cloud security is the protection of Azure cloud infrastructure, services and data against cyber attacks.

Are Azure Attack Simulations Safe to Perform?


Picus Cloud Security Validation safely executes attack scenarios in a local policy simulator. This approach ensures that there is no impact on your cloud operations.

How Regularly Should Azure Cloud Audits be Performed?


Picus recommends that organizations should perform cloud audits on at least a weekly basis. This is due to the rate of change within Azure cloud environments.  Audits should also be performed following infrastructure changes, such as the deployment of new cloud services.
