Get guidance and recommendations
Improve your security posture and prevent common misconfigurations with help from Azure Security Center. Azure Secure Score is the core of Azure Security Center’s security posture management capabilities. It provides insights into your current state and recommends actions to help prioritize steps you can take to improve your security posture.
Assess resources and prioritize fixes
Automatically discover new resources deployed across your workloads, assess whether their configurations meet security best practices, and get a prioritized list of recommendations with Azure Security Center.
Have more control
Manage and enforce your security policies and make sure your virtual machines and Azure PaaS services are compliant. Set your policies to run on management groups, across subscriptions, and even for a whole tenant.
Develop and operate secure apps in the cloud
Secure applications with DevOps
Build more secure apps faster with threat modeling, vulnerability scanning, and unit testing directly inside your release pipeline. Protect your app with encryption, and ensure success with our best practices and toolkit.
Ensure a secure software development life cycle
Build secure applications faster
Get all the tools necessary with GitHub and Azure. Everything you need to secure your app is fully integrated into the platform, whether you use Microsoft first-party or open-source tools. Start with threat modeling to identify potential threats and perform static and dynamic code analysis to find vulnerabilities.
Get dependency updates automatically
Use Dependentabot to scan dependencies from other libraries or components, including open source, for vulnerabilities and the latest updates. Ensure your secrets, such as connection strings and keys, are stored securely in repositories backed by hardware security modules, not embedded in your code.
Protect the stack, top to bottom
Protect identity by enabling MFA and the network using a firewall. Protect data with encryption at rest and in transit. Take data encryption to the next level with encryption in use through Azure’s confidential computing family of virtual machines.
Use our best practices and tools
Access Azure Security Center’s current best practices for securing your application so you know exactly what steps we recommend and implement with the same toolkit we use to secure our own applications.
