Azure Deployment & Security Hardening Guides

Focused on Media & Entertainment Vendors

The following guides are currently in place and available for public consumption:

Microsoft engaged Convergent Risks to review various media and entertainment industry workflows with the purpose of creating secure deployment and hardening guides. There are now four guides listed above covering VFX Rendering, VDI, Post-Production and Remote-Production in Azure Cloud. The purpose of these guides is to provide Microsoft customers with Azure specific secure deployment and hardening guidance applicable for the Media and Entertainment (M&E) industry.

We work extensively within the M&E sector and have utilised our industry specific knowledge and experience to provide customers with secure deployment guidance and recommendations. If you’re an early adopter of Azure or someone looking to improve your environment’s security posture, these guides will help you navigate through deployment and the security requirements in an efficient manner. Additionally, if you’re currently leveraging Azure and are preparing for cloud security audits or assessments, then these guides will help you work through the recommended best practices in advance.
