Rackspace Managed Security for Microsoft Azure Now Available in Early Access

Cloud provider Rackspace has announced from its Rackspace::Solve event that Rackspace Managed Security for Microsoft Azure is now available in early access. Companies using Microsoft Azure, AWS Cloud, Rackspace Dedicated Hosting and Rackspace Managed VMware Cloud would now be able to benefit from the additional security protections provided by Rackspace Managed Security.

With Rackspace Managed Security for Microsoft Azure, Rackspace customers can layer additional active security on their Microsoft Azure cloud platform to identify and respond to advanced cyber threats.

Rackspace Managed Security utilizes pre-approved actions to promptly remediate many security issues. This level of security would strengthen customers’ environments beyond the operational network and infrastructure security provided by most cloud providers.

“In today’s cyber security landscape, organizations are no longer asking if they should have a security solution in place, but rather whether they should do it themselves or partner with a trusted managed security service provider,” said Brannon Lacey, general manager of Rackspace Managed Security. “We are proud to extend this security solution to Azure, as it represents the continued growth of our Managed Security capabilities and aligns with the overall Rackspace mission to provide the best expertise and service across the world’s leading clouds.”

Rackspace Managed Security for Microsoft Azure is currently in early access in all regions supported by Fanatical Support for Azure including the US, UK and Australia. To learn more about Rackspace Managed Security for Azure, visit https://www.rackspace.com/en-us/security.
