Azure Security Center is an advanced integrated security management platform that Microsoft provides to all Azure subscribers. Standard product features include security integrity monitoring for cloud and local workloads. Block security threats with access control and applications. An adjustable security policy to maintain compliance with regulations and standards. Security vulnerability discovery tools and patches. Advanced threat detection with alerts and security scans. Here is an overview of Azure Security Center and how to leverage its rich set of features to enhance the security of cloud and on-premise implementations.
Security Roles & Policies
Azure Security Center allows you to assign roles to specific members of your team in order to grant them access to particular sets of tools within Security Center that correspond to their different areas of responsibility. Security Center’s role system is built on Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), which provides Azure subscribers with control over user access and permissions throughout Azure. The RBAC system comes with three built-in user roles—Owner, Contributor, and Reader—which work across Azure. The Owner and Contributor roles come in two types (Subscription and Resource Group). Azure Security Center has also added two additional roles that are unique to its security offering: Security Reader and Security Administrator. Altogether, this brings the total to seven available roles:
Security Center helps you prevent, detect, and respond to threats with increased visibility into and control over the security of your Azure resources. It provides integrated security monitoring and policy management across your Azure subscriptions, helps detect threats that might otherwise go unnoticed, and works with a broad ecosystem of security solutions. Security Center delivers easy-to-use and effective threat prevention, detection, and response capabilities that are built in to Azure. Key capabilities are:
Monitors the security state of your Azure resources.
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.
Uses policy-driven security recommendations to guide service owners through the process of implementing needed controls.
Rapidly deploys security services and appliances from Microsoft and partners.
Automatically collects and analyzes security data from your Azure resources, the network, and partner solutions like antimalware programs and firewalls.
Leverages global threat intelligence from Microsoft products and services, the Microsoft Digital Crimes Unit (DCU), the Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC), and external feeds.
Applies advanced analytics, including machine learning and behavioral analysis
Provides prioritized security incidents/alerts.
Offers insights into the source of the attack and impacted resources.
Suggests ways to stop the current attack and help prevent future attacks
EXPERTISE At Dalwax, we’ve tackled several challenging Azure transformation journeys for our customers, by re-architecting and rewriting their applications from the ground up to be Azure-native. Along the way, we learned some key lessons on how to re-architect applications to be modular, scalable, fault tolerant and ultra-responsive.
PaaS & Container Architectures
We are experts at converting traditional stateful applications into modern applications leveraging Azure PaaS services and container architectures for total control over scalability and resilience.
While modernizing applications we leverage an Agile DevOps driven approach that enables application delivery transformation by enabling toolchains and processes that support continuous integration and continuous delivery.
We can help develop and implement best-fit architectures and components depending on whether your application is heavy on end-user interactions (predominantly user driven and UI / UX is important) vs Event driven (IoT and business process automation Intelligent apps).
Corporate compliance, governance and performance considerations can mandate application components to remain within Private cloud or existing on-premise environments, and still talk to the Public cloud components. Our experts can help design solutions for optimal performance and scale.
While monolithic, on-premise applications are perceived to be secure due to the ability to implement centralized security policies while behind corporate firewalls, with our knowledge and expertise we can help deploy enhanced security postures within your Azure cloud environments.
We can help businesses efficiently leverage ready-to-use Azure cloud services and solution components to reduce development time while benefitting from the inherent cloud native features of the services. Our experts strike the right balance between upfront vs ongoing benefits of using these services.
