You can add your Microsoft Azure environments to Sophos Cloud Optix in the following ways:

Conditions

Before you add Microsoft Azure environments you must be aware of the following points:

  1. Sophos Cloud Optix can't connect to free trial Microsoft Azure accounts. This is because of a restriction in the subscription permissions with free trials of Microsoft Azure.
  2. By adding your Microsoft Azure environment, you authorize Sophos to access information via APIs and to collect log data from your environment. Your cloud provider may charge you for this. See Cloud provider charges or contact your provider for details. You can choose not to turn on the export of network flow logs if you don't need the advanced features that require this data.
  3. You can't add certain isolated Microsoft Azure environments such as the US Government, Germany, and China, to Sophos Cloud Optix. For further information on Microsoft Azure geographies see Microsoft article https://azure.microsoft.com/en-ca/global-infrastructure/geographies/.
