Regarding using Azure Active Directory / O365 / Windows to endsure Security

Ramesh Krishnamurthy 21 Reputation points

Dear Sir / Madam

We are a SaaS company and are looking at a comprehensive strategy to implement security within the organisation.

We use a combination of local host and Cloud (Azure) for development. All our production applications are hosted on Azure. We do not have server.

We use O365 for our employees.

We need help setting security on the following (not limited, more ideas welcome)

  1. Access Control
  2. User Privileges
  3. 3rd Party Application Installation Control
  4. Website Access Control
  5. Physical Ports like USB control
  6. Virus / Phishing control
  7. IP / MAC id / AD control
  8. Source Code Control

Do let us know if there is a comprehensive way that we can do using Microsoft software. If not would also be great if third party software is suggested.
