The client required Olikka’s expertise to introduce additional security measures in their Azure environment. These measures had to balance security and costs whilst maintaining the existing business environment.
Olikka explored multiple options including third party offerings (Palo Alto) and native Azure services. Based on the team’s recommendations, the client chose to implement the Azure Firewall service.
Azure Firewall provides the best balance of security and cost. It is easy to maintain and administer compared to a traditional firewall. It also scales automatically as demand increases, whether it’s due to peak load or business growth. Azure Firewall features threat filtering sourced from the Microsoft Threat Intelligence feed. This allows the client to monitor traffic from malicious sites.
Olikka provided the resources to update the existing Azure design and accommodate the new services. This was followed by implementation and cutover.
