Secure Cloud allows you to get the most out of hyperscale cloud computing by securely extending your network, identity and security boundaries directly into Azure. Secure Cloud for Azure provides a secure, controlled and dedicated connection between an on-premises environment and Australia's Azure regions, including the new Australia Central 1 and 2 regions.
Confidently deploy solutions knowing that trusted controls, processes and automation are in place to encapsulate and protect your presence in the cloud, silently maintaining the security and integrity of your systems and data. Secure Cloud enables organisations to deploy individual workspaces, or subscriptions, in Azure, whilst still adhering to corporate and government policies, and is designed to meet the security and legal requirements placed on highly regulated organisations.
For some customers, getting on-board and embracing the benefits of cloud can be as simple as signing up for an Azure subscription with a credit card. For others, especially those who operate in highly regulated industries like finance, health and government, things aren't necessarily as straightforward.
These industries desperately want to take advantage of the benefits that cloud has to offer, but doing so without the right configuration, processes and standards - an Azure Framework - in place prior to adoption can result in some of the benefits around cost, optimisation and security being lost. Most importantly, enterprise IT needs to ensure that data and systems are effectively protected. oobe has worked to solve this problem by creating a ready-made, targeted framework, that streamlines the way for cloud adoption - helping you tick all the right boxes from the word go.
Secure Cloud securely extends the perimeter of your on-premises network into the cloud using a dedicated gateway hub, allowing organisations to safely realise the full potential of the Azure cloud. Equally as important, it also enforces and monitors compliance by wrapping the entire customer presence in the cloud with pre-defined policies, controls and standards.
Each spoke, or workspace, is connected and routed through the central gateway hub. Any communication to or from an Azure-hosted workspace to either the on-premises network, the internet or other permitted Azure services is controlled, filtered and monitored via the central hub. Using only security-cleared cloud specialists, oobe provides the ongoing monitoring and management and feature enhancement of Secure Cloud, ensuring the enforcement and compliance of the service for our customers with classified or highly sensitive environments.
Connectivity between your on-premises environment and Secure Cloud for Azure can be provided by ExpressRoute, ICON and complimented with a VPN depending on your security requirements.
The prospect of a cloud subscription without guard rails can be daunting. Having worked with some of government's most sensitive organisations, oobe understands security. Secure Cloud is a culmination of thousands of hours of research and development by oobe bringing together the best technologies and services available from Azure and years of relevant industry experience. As a Microsoft Gold Partner, we intimately understand Azure and we also understand that customers can drive the most value from the cloud when treating it as an extension to their environments as opposed to consuming cloud as an island outside.
Secure Cloud is designed with security and compliance at its core and addresses all of the required 'Network Security', 'Identification, Authentication and Authorisation' and 'Privileged Access' controls required by the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) Information Security Manual (ISM), which is a key deliverable in organisations achieving PROTECTED-level accreditation for their systems in Microsoft Azure. With Secure Cloud for Azure, you can confidently extend your organisation to the cloud and be PROTECTED_READY.
