Serious about security? Check out Azure Security Center


In “Hybrid Cloud Workload Protection with Azure Security Center,” a new course available on Microsoft Virtual Academy (MVA), Yuri Diogenes and Ty Balascio offer an overview of Azure Security Center, including requirements, planning, onboarding, and troubleshooting. Yuri and Ty work with real-world data and share their experience in the field to show how the threat landscape differs for a cloud or hybrid environment versus on-premises. They also explore threat detection and talk you through threat response in a lab environment.

Security threats increase in volume and sophistication every day. And regardless of your organization’s size or the industry you’re in, Azure Security Center threat detection capabilities, alerts, and recommended fixes can give you the tangible data you need to address these issues. Plus, you can monitor your on-premises, hybrid, or cloud environment—either Azure or Amazon—to get a more complete picture.

Get set up, run assessments, and create custom alerts and prioritize them. And review remediation suggestions, which are practical steps for resolving any issues. Start implementing security policies and just in time VM access, and see how to deploy the service and keep it secure. Finally, learn about troubleshooting, make an action plan, and hear about next steps, as you get the information you need to enhance your organization’s security posture.
