Shell Control Box, which runs seamlessly on Microsoft Hyper-V, perfectly isolates your sensitive Azure systems from unknown intruders or from non-authorized insiders. Balabit uses Azure Storage as shares for the backup and archive policies. Quotas for file storage can be changed dynamically, so the cumulative size of the audit trails is not limited to the OS disk size. In addition, Microsoft Azure offers valued options for future developments, including Azure Security Center, Azure Active Directory and Azure Key Vault integration.

"Microsoft Azure provides an easily accessible platform for Balabit to enter the public cloud space. The Microsoft Azure Marketplace is a convenient and flexible channel for us to reach our potential small- and mid-sized customers worldwide, said Balabit product manager Csaba Krasznay.
