Innovation always has its risks. You need the right support to manage them.

Microsoft Azure is the leading public cloud platform to support cloud innovation and solution development. However, the risks of innovation are real – particularly if you’re going it alone. Thankfully, you don’t have to do that. Macquarie Guard by Macquarie Cloud Services is a first-of-its kind SaaS offering for Azure customers in the Australian marketplace. Backed by Microsoft, Macquarie Guard gives you the safeguards and skills you need to enable accelerated development on Azure.

Add value to Azure where it’s needed the most.

Microsoft Azure’s built-in data analytics, AI and ML technologies offer you limitless possibilities to improve your productivity, expand your customer base and grow your bottom line.

Macquarie Guard automates practical guardrails into Azure’s services, enabling accelerated development with complex solutions and innovations – all without increasing risk; or reducing reliability and performance. It features 50+ function applications, machine learning (ML)-powered bot services, cost and resource optimisation tools and more.

This tried-and-tested guardrail automation is strengthened with the assurance of Macquarie Cloud Services’ attentive hands on the wheel. We’re Australia’s fastest-growing Azure Expert Managed Service Provider, and our award-winning team, processes and technology work together to secure, optimise and stabilise your operations.

Macquarie Guard will free you up to add value where it’s needed most. It’s available now from Microsoft’s Azure Marketplace.
