Azure Security Center

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:

Stage Capability

Detect Automatically collects and analyzes security data from your Azure resources, the network, and partner solutions like antimalware programs and firewalls
