"It takes very little effort to integrate it. It also gives very good visibility into what exactly is happening."
"This is a platform as a service provided by Azure. We don't need to install or maintain Azure Security Center. It is a ready-made service available in Azure. This is one of the main things that we like. If you look at similar tools, we have to install, maintain, and update services. Whereas, Azure Security Center manages what we are using. This is a good feature that has helped us a lot."
"Using Security Center, you have a full view, at any given time, of what's deployed, and that is something that is very useful."
"We can create alerts that trigger if there is any malicious activity happening in the workflow and these alerts can be retrieved using the query language."
"When we started out, our secure score was pretty low. We adopted some of the recommendations that Security Center set out and we were able to make good progress on improving it. It had been in the low thirties and is now in the upper eighties."
"The most valuable features of this solution are the vulnerability assessments and the glossary of compliance."
"The most valuable feature is that it's intuitive. It's very intuitive."
"The security alerts and correlated alerts are most valuable. It correlates the logs and gives us correlated alerts, which can be fed into any security information and event management (SIEM) tool. It is an analyzed correlation tool for monitoring security. It gives us alerts when there is any kind of unauthorized access, or when there is any malfunctioning in multifactor authentication (MFA). If our Azure is connected with Azure Security Center, we get to know what types of authentication are happening in our infra."
"Virtual patching is one of the key features, which is executed with their IPS."
"From a compliance standpoint, they can include some more metrics and some specific compliances such as GDPR."
"The documentation and implementation guides could be improved."
"Azure Security Center takes a long time to update, compared to the on-premises version of Microsoft Defender."
"I felt that there was disconnection in terms of understanding the UI. The communication for moving from the old UI to the new UI could be improved. It was a bit awkward."
"As an analyst, there is no way to configure or create a playbook to automate the process of flagging suspicious domains."
"There is no perfect product in the world and there are always features that can be added."
"Azure is a complex solution. You have so many moving parts."
"Pricing could be improved. There are limited options based on pricing for the government."
"The firewall configuration should have been automated based on the understanding of the application, utilities, and protocols."
