By bringing together Microsoft cloud solutions and Nokia's expertise in mission-critical networking, the companies are uniquely positioned to help enterprises and communications service providers (CSPs) transform their businesses.

At the same time, Fortinet FortiCWP's integration with Azure provides customers with increased visibility into their cloud workloads activity and configurations, as well as the ability to conduct deep analysis of data stored in Microsoft Azure blobs.

In addition to 24x7 threat monitoring and alerts, an advanced option for Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection clients immediately escalates a detected incident to a full scale digital forensic investigation and/or a threat hunt.

Updated functionality to Microsoft 365 was also announced, including Project Cortex, which builds upon SharePoint and uses AI to create a knowledge network to automatically organise data, deliver relevant information to people within an organisation, machine learning and knowledge retrieval to access information in documents, conversations meetings and videos.

Because of this, the FarmBeats team was among the first to leverage Microsoft's efforts in using TV white space for connectivity and, of course, Azure IoT Edge for collecting all of the data.

Earlier this year, Google Cloud upped the ante with the launch of Anthos, a hybrid version of its cloud service with support for multicloud management and support.

"Building Qualys capabilities directly into Azure, Microsoft greatly simplifies the customer's deployment of vulnerability management and container security solutions".

Analysts had expected a loss of $1.5bn on revenue of $3.6bn, up from $3.2bn in the second quarter . On a per-share basis, net loss attributable to stockholders narrowed to 68 USA cents from US$2.21.

The first Azure Sphere-certified chip, MdiaTek's MT3620, is being adopted by companies across different industries to design and produce consumer appliances to retail and manufacturing equipment, Microsoft said.

As indicated by Qualcomm, the new Azure Sphere-ensured chipset for IoT will incorporate equipment level security; come preconfigured with Azure Sphere, and will naturally interface with Azure Sphere cloud security administrations.

"The goal of FarmBeats is to augment farmers' knowledge and intuition about their own farm with data and data-driven insights", Microsoft explained in today's announcement.

The partnerships this week for Microsoft have been fast and furious, including Tuesday's news that it's working with Nokia.

Martha Vazquez, senior research analyst at IDC adds, The capabilities within the Trustwave Fusion platform make it a good choice for organizations looking to enhance their multi-cloud security without having to ˜rip and replace.

The Fortinet Security Fabric's dynamic cloud security platform set provides Azure customers with an extensive portfolio of integrated security products.
