Defend cloud applications and database infrastructure from account compromise, insider threats, and access misuse. Keep your cloud environment safe and secure with built-in defence from your business environment to the Azure Cloud Platform.
98% of enterprise companies experienced a cloud data breach last year. Unfortunately, businesses can’t just use their traditional on-premises security solutions for the cloud, leaving their cloud infrastructure at risk of control-plane misconfigurations, workload and application vulnerabilities, and insecure secrets management.
Managed Cloud Threat Detection and Response (CTDR) security services provide an added layer of defence to protect your business’s critical apps and database. Advanced threat detection and prevention capabilities come together to defend cloud applications and infrastructure from account compromise, insider threats, and access misuse to strengthen your last line of defence.
The migration to the cloud has opened a host of vulnerabilities in perimeter traffic and integrations. The dynamic nature of cloud infrastructure leaves businesses playing catchup, trying to integrate security processes, products, and tools into their workflows. Automate the entire process of threat detection and response between cloud storage, workloads, configuration and networks.

Cloud Threat Detection and Response (TDR) is a cybersecurity approach designed to identify and respond to security threats in cloud-based environments, such as Azure Cloud. Cloud TDR involves the use of advanced security technologies, such as machine learning, behavioral analysis, and threat intelligence, to monitor cloud environments for signs of suspicious activity.
When a threat is detected, the Cloud TDR solution will alert security teams, who can then investigate the incident and take appropriate action to mitigate the threat.
Cloud TDR solutions typically provide a range of security features, such as real-time monitoring, behavioral analysis, incident response and threat intelligence. Together, this service allows for immediate detection and response to security threats where security teams investigate incidents and identify the root cause of the threat.
By leveraging advanced security technologies and techniques, Cloud TDR solutions help businesses detect and respond to security threats in real-time, reducing the risk of data breaches and other security incidents.
Moving data to the cloud introduces new attack-surfaces, threats, and challenges, so you need to approach security in a new way. Traditional security controls are not designed to mitigate and protect against the new threats in cloud environments. Cloud TDR involves a set of technologies and processes designed specifically to protect the network, servers, applications and data that make up the cloud computing ecosystem.
Managed cloud threat detection and response (TDR) security offers a wide range of benefits for organizations that are looking to secure their cloud-based infrastructure and applications. Some of the key benefits of using Managed Cloud TDR security is the ability to leverage advanced threat detection technologies such as machine learning, behavioral analysis, and threat intelligence to detect and respond to security threats in real-time.
Some additional benefits include:
Real-time monitoring and alerting, allowing organizations to respond quickly to security incidents, helping to minimize the impact of a security breach and prevent further damage.
Managed Cloud TDR security solutions are highly scalable, allowing organizations to easily expand their security capabilities as their cloud-based infrastructure grows. This scalability ensures that organizations can maintain effective security measures even as their cloud environments become more complex.
Managed Cloud TDR security solutions are fully managed by MSSPs like Difenda, reducing the burden on an organization’s IT staff. This means that organizations can focus on their core business activities while the managed security provider handles the day-to-day management of their security infrastructure.
Compliance: Managed cloud TDR security solutions can help organizations meet regulatory compliance requirements by providing continuous monitoring and reporting of security events. This helps organizations demonstrate compliance with industry regulations and standards such as GDPR, PCI DSS, HIPAA, and SOC 2.
