A few weeks ago, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella addressed the topic of cyber security, specifically Microsoft's Enterprise Security Approach. Helping customers prevent, detect, and respond to cyber threats more effectively. This week Microsoft announced that the public preview of Azure Security Center is now available. The Azure Security Center offers various security monitoring and management for your cloud resources.
Azure Security Center allows you to:
Understand the security state of your Azure resources
Control cloud security with policies that let you recommend and monitor security configurations
Deploy integrated Microsoft and partner security solutions from Barracuda, F5, and Trend Micro (soon to include Fortinet, Check Point, Cisco, Imperva, Incapsula, and CloudFlare).
Prioritized alerts. Get alerted to threats detected using advanced analytics, including machine learning and behavioral profiling, and Microsoft’s vast global threat intelligence assets
Microsoft Azure Security Center makes it easier for enterprises to better respond to threats and also quickly deploy recommended security controls to help prevent them. Threats are detected earlier, with fewer false alarms. Manage and monitor cloud protections according to the security and compliance needs of your organization.
