Key Customer Benefits

 

  • Azure Active Directory – Enhancing previous investments, Azure Active Directory management tools pushes identity protection into the next layer
  • Operations Management Suite – A blind spot was identified when it came to visibility and control across the hybrid cloud and VMs, as well as custom dashboards
  • Microsoft Advanced Threat Analytics – Gaining deeper insight into Suspicious activity across the Domain Controllers as well as devices was identified during the Assessment as a major risk to Spar. ATA ticks that box.
  • Microsoft Intune – Spar has a large mobile workforce. Defining a mobile management strategy was the first step to enable employees with the devices and apps they choose. Deploying Intune to manage and protect company information was the second step.
