Azure Security Center allows you to prevent, detect and respond to threats with increased visibility and control over the security of all your Azure resources. Back in July, Microsoft announced the general availability of Azure Security Center. Azure Security Center uses advanced analytics, including machine learning, and Microsoft’s vast global threat intelligence to detect threats and provide actionable alerts and dramatically reducing detection and response times. Today, Microsoft announced that Azure Security Center is now available in the UK.
Key capabilities are:
|Prevent||Monitors the security state of your Azure resources|
|Prevent||Defines policies for your Azure subscriptions and resource groups based on your company’s security requirements, the types of applications that you use, and the sensitivity of your data|
|Prevent||Uses policy-driven security recommendations to guide service owners through the process of implementing needed controls|
|Prevent||Rapidly deploys security services and appliances from Microsoft and partners|
|Detect||Automatically collects and analyzes security data from your Azure resources, the network, and partner solutions like antimalware programs and firewalls|
|Detect||Leverages global threat intelligence from Microsoft products and services, the Microsoft Digital Crimes Unit (DCU), the Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC), and external feeds|
|Detect||Applies advanced analytics, including machine learning and behavioral analysis|
|Respond||Provides prioritized security incidents/alerts|
|Respond||Offers insights into the source of the attack and impacted resources|
|Respond||Suggests ways to stop the current attack and help prevent future attacks|
