In a keynote two weeks ago, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella shared the company’s vision for enterprise security in a mobile-first, cloud-first world. He highlighted the need for a new approach to security – one that leverages Microsoft’s unique insights into the threat landscape – and showcased Microsoft technologies, including Azure Security Center, which will work together to help customers better prevent, detect, and respond to threats.
Today, we are pleased to announce that the public preview of Azure Security Center is now available. The new service offers unmatched security monitoring and management for your cloud resources and is an essential part of Microsoft’s vision to deliver a holistic, agile security platform for today’s enterprise. With Azure Security Center, you can:
