Operations Management Suite–Security Now Generally Available

imageIt’s been a great couple of weeks for anyone interested in great security for solutions they host in Azure.

Last week we let you know about Azure Security Center going into general availability and how Azure Security Center can bring you the detection and response capabilities you need to protect your Azure workloads. We also let you know that this level of continuous security monitoring and alerting is most likely the best security solution offered by a public cloud service provider today.


That was great news, but now for part 2 – Operations Management Suite-Security is now in General Availability and all of the good things in terms of threat detection that you have for your Azure workloads with Azure Security Center are now available in OMS Security.

OMS Security makes is possible easily assess your security posture for your on-premises or hybrid workloads. It’s a fantastic solution with a compelling interface that is both very easy to use and powerful at the same time. An example of this power is almost one of my favorite features – the ability to automate responses to specific detections using runbooks or webhooks.

Some of the new security features included in OMS Security include:

  • An enhanced Security dashboard
  • A Threat Intelligence Map
  • Security Configuration Baseline Assessment
  • An Identity and Access Management dashboard
  • Microsoft Advanced Threat Analytics integration
  • Cisco ASA log ingestion
  • Advanced threat detection engine

Sounds good? No! Sounds GREAT! For details on each of these new security features, check out Operations Management Suite expands to include security management, threat detection.

And as mentioned, OMS Security inherits much of the advanced threat detection you get with Azure Security Center – behavioral analysis, anomaly detection, machine learning based algorithms, multiple threat intelligence feeds, and more.
