Here's just some of what you can do with Azure

Gain secure access to cloud-scale resources

Use VPN Gateway as a site-to-site VPN. Securely connect your on-premises networks to Azure, giving your staff the freedom to burst to the cloud when needed.

Increase employee freedom and productivity

Use VPN Gateway as a point-to-site VPN to let employees connect to your virtual machines on Azure virtual networks from anywhere. On the road, from a café or airport, or at a customer site.

Rest assured that you're in compliance

Azure has more compliance certifications than any other cloud provider. Feel good that your remote workers are in compliance as they send data to and from the cloud.

These products are free up to the specified monthly amounts. Some are always free to all Azure customers, and some are free for 12 months to new customers only.
