Azure Firewall Premium: Real Security Defenses for Ransomware Attacks
Security should be one of the top priorities of your organization. Just in 2021, according to IDC’s Ransomware Study, 37% of organizations around the world were victims of cyber and ransomware attacks. As we know, a ransomware attack is malicious software designed to block access to your computer system until a sum of money is paid.
This type of cyber-attack does not only affect personal devices, but whole networks in your system. Usually, ransomware spreads through phishing emails or drive-by, when users download it from an infected website without their knowledge. Azure Firewall is the solution that Microsoft provides to protect and eradicate this type of malware.
That’s why many organizations are choosing Azure Firewall to protect them from these attacks. In the last few years, Microsoft has emphasized the importance of having strong and reliable security in Azure and its cloud. As a result, an even more solid team player comes to help: Azure Firewall Premium. Loaded with IDPS (Intrusion Detection and Prevention System), you can count on it to monitor your network for any type of malicious activity, log information about it, and potentially block it.
How does Azure Firewall Premium work?
IDPS signatures constantly inspect both applications and network-level traffic, while managing more than 65,000 signatures in over 50 different categories to ensure different attacks are not accomplished.
