In 2020, technical solutions and cloud security services are among the greatest security challenges concerning the cloud. Available are resources and services secured by design and updated automatically, however. High availability is no longer a complex task and DDoS protection runs by default.
These great advantages notwithstanding, security in the cloud is negatively affected by lack of visibility, rapidly changing workloads and infrastructures, sophisticated attacks and shortages in the security workforce.
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away
Back in 1983 the great emperor warned: “You will pay the price for your lack of vision!” – and such is our predicament today.
Without visibility and a unified security management system you won’t be able to meet the security challenges of 2020. The risk of becoming compromised is omnipresent: Once under attack, you will no longer be able to provide services for your organization or customers –
and you will pay the price.
To face this challenge, Microsoft Azure provides a powerful, centralized Security Management System for reinforcing your security levels. Let’s take a look at the light side of the Force:
the Azure Security Center.
In sum, Azure sentinel enables you to keep your environment safe. Apart from the Security Center, Azure Sentinel provides additional options for digging deeper and correlating events, logs and actions in order to detect complex attacks.
Consider it as the master of the Security Center – like Yoda for Luke. But only the combination of the two makes the full power available.
We recommend using Azure Security Center and Azure Sentinel side by side.
Use the Azure Security Center for threat protection of workloads and connect the Center to Azure Sentinel.
Once the two are connected, you’ll be able to combine data with sources in order to perform proactive threat hunting and threat mitigation.
The full power of Threat Protection on Azure will then be unleashed!
