User Support, Security Management and Continuous Monitoring are just a few of the benefits Managed Services add to your Microsoft Azure experience. Azure is an exceptional cloud platform allowing for simple deployments of windows server based applications, but the ongoing application management can become time-consuming and expensive if you are managing these tasks in-house. Managed Services or Azure Managed Services by Project Hosts to be specific, allows enterprises and government agencies to outsource these services to an industry leader, offering peace of mind and relief from the ongoing tasks that keep your deployment running at peak performance and the highest possible safety levels.
Azure takes care of the physical security of their data centers as well as access control and the security surrounding physical devices. But Azure leaves it up to each customer to secure and restrict access to their own virtual servers/subnets:
Malware Protection Management
Application Lockdown Maintenance
Incident Response Planning and Testing
While you can assign your own software engineering and IT support staff to provide these services, it may take time and effort to train-up your personnel to perform the Security Management, Deployment Optimization and Support Services highlighted below. Project Hosts, a recognized Cloud Services Provider (CSP) for Azure and other environments has the critical expertise and support staff to assist with your Azure deployment.
