Cybersecurity is on track to be more important than ever in 2023. Is Microsoft Azure the answer to business’ security needs?

Now that we are into the new year, many organisations will be looking at their infrastructure to see what can be changed or improved. One area of business that can always be improved is cybersecurity. This is because cyberthreats are always changing, and businesses need to stay on the ball.
