Microsoft has its eye on the clouds for its partners. At its Worldwide Partner Conference this week, the company said it had three "new cloud-focused competencies" for Office 365 and Azure.
Microsoft's Azure cloud is now being secured by Barracuda Networks. The company said the latest version of its Web Application Firewall is available through Microsoft’s Azure Gallery.
To boost its Azure cloud platform, Microsoft has acquired InMage and its Scout technology for backup, replicating, and quickly recovering data and apps in the case of a system failure.
Perhaps in response to talk about Microsoft's fallibility in some market segments, CEO Satya Nadella has issued a lengthy memo encouraging Microsoft employees to "reinvent productivity."
