I work as a SOC manager. We use it for incident security, incident monitoring, threat analysis, and looking at remediation or suppression.

We use Azure Security Center in our own company, and we have also deployed it for one of our clients. Our biggest use case is the enforcement of regulatory compliance on our cloud.

I use this solution in two different scenarios. The first is for the security and monitoring of Azure accounts. Another is for SIEM integration and the Azure Gateway WAF. Essentially, it's a one-stop solution where you can integrate all of the other Azure security products. This means that instead of maybe going to Firewall Manager, Azure Defender, or WAF, you can have all of them send statistics or logs to Azure Security Center, and you can do your analysis from there.

I am working in a security domain where Azure Security Center is playing a key role. We are primarily using Azure Security Center to secure our infrastructure. We are also able to use Azure Security Center for many other purposes. In terms of deployment, we have a hybrid cloud. It is a combination of both on-prem and cloud. Azure Security Center is deployed on-prem, and then there are OMS agents that are provided by Microsoft that can be installed at any location, such as on-prem or on the cloud. These agents collect Windows and Linux logs from the machines on various clouds for Azure Security Center, which is something interesting for me.

Security is at the forefront of everything that we have been doing, fundamentally. Both in my previous organization and the current one, Azure Security Center has given us a great overview of the current state of security, through the recommendations given by Microsoft. There are potential situations where risk exists because you're not compliant with a specific recommendation, or to specific regulatory compliance. Such guidance is critical for us. We implement a wide range of solutions in our environment. We have solutions that are purely SaaS. We have some things that are just purely IaaS, and, of course, we have PaaS for services as well. So, we really have a wide range of deployments on all services as a service.

This solution replaces, in many ways, the on-premises operations manager that used to be part of the System Center.

Primary use case of this solution has changed depending on the company I've been working in. In my previous job they were using it as a CWPP, cloud workload protection. In my current job it's used for the same purpose but we also use it for monitoring security policies, to enforce new policies and audit them. We also use it to meet some of the compliance requirements as well. We're partners with Azure and I'm the cloud security design lead.

Azure Security Center is very easy to use, integrates well, and gives very good visibility on what is happening across your ecosystem. It also has great remote workforce capabilities and supports a multi-cloud environment very well. The dashboard gives clear, easy to understand reporting, and even has a compliance regulatory reporting function that will help identify gaps in your solution and quickly fix them. This can be a real cost-saver. Azure Security Center gives a comprehensive view of the total security structure of your organization. The solution is stable and very scalable. We found Prisma Cloud integrated well with many different solutions. This solution does both development-side security and run-time security very well, which makes it extremely marketable. It offers traffic analysis, user activity, and vulnerability management. Prisma Cloud comes bundled with many different policies, which is very helpful. The dashboard is very informative and offers compliance tabs and other valuable management tabs. Azure Security Center can be a bit complex and challenging to use for a non-technical person. The solution could be more flexible, as many policies don’t apply to every client. The licensing and pricing can also be pretty costly. Prisma Cloud sometimes falls behind on keeping up with changes and updates with other solutions, causing some lag time within the solution. It may also be difficult for individuals who are not so tech-savvy. It is lacking a bit in compliance and risk perspectives and analysis. Conclusion Azure Security Center is great, especially if you are already functioning in an Azure ecosystem. It provides great management and regulatory compliance information. Prisma Cloud can seem inflexible and complicated to use, but if you have a solid plan from the beginning on how to deploy the solution throughout your organization and have done your homework, it can prove to be a very good solution as well.

Well, some times ago, EDR agents was moved to XDR but now, XDR is on "peak of inflated expectations", the second of five phases in product development hype. I'd rather wait a little bit, may be ZDR :)
