With advancements in technology, more and more companies are taking the opportunity to achieve higher levels and gain profits and reputation at an international level. Scaling a business to the next level generally requires a ton of computing hardware and software and a maintenance team. Due to the ubiquity of cloud computing vendors, it is easier to get computing services without worrying about setup and maintenance costs. But as with normal computing systems, it is essential to secure your cloud infrastructure from cyber attackers.

According to a report on cloud threats by Aqua Security, at the start of the year 2020, there was a 250% jump in attacks on cloud infrastructures. While it may seem tiresome to secure your cloud infrastructure, here we discuss a few steps that can be taken to amp up your Azure DevOps security.

1. Single Sign-on

Single sign on (SSO) is part of the Azure Active Directory premium service.

With SSO, you can use a single user account to access all the services required to do business. Once signed in, the user will not need to re-authenticate multiple times for each service. Without SSO, users need to devise a unique and secure password for each SASS and web service such as Microsoft 365, Box, Salesforce.

In the former, as users do not need to create and remember new passwords for each service, password repudiation can be eliminated to make the infrastructure more secure.
