American software giant Microsoft has advocated a 228-page playbook in which it predicts that managed security services market is expected to reach nearly $41 billion on a global note in just next five years.
The Security Practice Development Playbook of Microsoft views that that playbook will help all its partners to have a strong security strategy to Office 365, Windows, EMS and Azure.
It is evident that companies are nowadays interested in embracing cloud practices in their enterprise environments.
But security concerns are hindering most of them from taking a forward step towards cloud computing. Increased cybersecurity threats and privacy regulations such as data protection laws are a few to name so.
Microsoft’s new playbook is designed in such a way that it will help all its partners optimize a security practice and understand why they should perform as per its guide’s recommend. The playbook has touched interesting concepts like strategy, hiring, training, operations, go-to-market and closing deals, optimizing and growing along with some additional resources from the case studies made by the Redmond Giant.
Hence, the Playbook of Microsoft can act as a guiding force to all the enterprise CTOs and CIOs who are still concerned in embracing the cloud due to security concerns.
