Ignite Ignites Security


November 8, 2019 concluded the week-long Ignite Conference, which Microsoft runs for Information Technology (IT) professionals and developers every year. The conference is a mixture of Microsoft speaker sessions, certification training, and product announcements. This year, Microsoft announced a spate of additional security and compliance features in its Azure and Microsoft Office 365 solutions, as well as plans to extend the scope of some of its existing security offerings. The announcements are timely, especially in light of the Capital One hack, which put a bit of a damper on the “all-in” for public cloud. Amazon, not to be deterred, put off blame, but Microsoft is more shrewdly capitalizing on the fallout by announcing some reinforced security on both the defensive and offensive fronts.
