Cloud anywhere: Azure for hybrid and multicloud environments 16 Hybrid fundamentals 03. Security As operations and applications expand across on-premises, multicloud, and edge infrastructure, security becomes complex. In this era of frequent data breaches, having a cloud platform that protects databases and unstructured data lakes is critically important. Azure gives companies two ways to manage security from a single place. Azure Security Center Azure Security Center allows businesses to manage their security postures across every infrastructure from a single portal by setting policies for different resources, monitoring for violations and anomalies, and performing common security tasks, such as patching, compliance testing, and configuration management. Security is a part of the fabric of Azure, giving companies capabilities that specific applications or services might not otherwise have. Azure Sentinel Azure Sentinel is a scalable, cloud- native, security information and event management (SIEM) as well as a security orchestration automated response (SOAR) solution. The capability gives your IT team access to real-time security analytics and threat intelligence across the enterprise, providing a single solution for alert detection, threat visibility, proactive hunting, and threat response. As breaches continue to affect business, quick discovery and remediation become essential for the security of your infrastructure. Azure Sentinel collects data across all parts of your hybrid cloud architecture and from other cloud providers as well, supporting multicloud strategies. By combining global and industry threat intelligence, the platform can also detect sophisticated attackers and reduce false positives. Azure Sentinel incorporates artificial intelligence (AI) to help companies respond more quickly, and in the right way, to investigate each threat. Building on the full range of existing Azure services, Azure Sentinel natively incorporates proven foundations, like Log Analytics and Logic Apps. Azure Sentinel enriches your investigation and detection with the Microsoft threat intelligence stream and enables you to bring your own threat intelligence by adding AI and machine-learning features.
