Quickly set up and extend security beyond Azure

  • Extend security posture management and threat protection to on-premises VMs.
  • Easily provision an agent to server workloads running on-premises.
  • Assess your security through a unified view across your hybrid cloud workloads.
  • Connect to existing tools and processes, like security information and event management (SIEM) or integrate partner security solutions.
  • Reduce investments and reallocate resources by using built-in first-party or third-party security controls.

How Security Center works

When you activate Security Center, a monitoring agent is deployed automatically into Azure virtual machines. For on-premises VMs, you manually deploy the agent. Security Center begins assessing the security state of all your VMs, networks, applications and data.

Our analytics engines analyse the data and machine learning synthesises it. Security Center provides recommendations and threat alerts for protecting your workloads. You will know right away if there’s been an attack or anomalous activity.

Aggregate your security information in an Azure Monitor workspace for big data querying capabilities. Alternatively, you can query your data through REST APIs, PowerShell cmdlets or integration with an existing SIEM, such as Azure Sentinel.

Benefits of using azure security center

Threat Protection

Focused on the most critical threats first.

Adaptive application controls - Blocks malware and other unwanted applications by applying whitelisting recommendations adapted to your specific Azure workloads and powered by the Microsoft machine learning apparatus. Prioritized alerts and incidents - Security Center uses advanced analytics and global threat intelligence to detect incoming attacks and post-breach activity. Alerts are automatically prioritized and grouped into incidents, helping you focus on the most critical threats first, and you can create custom security alert groupings as well.

Just in time VM access - Reduces the network attack surface with just in time, controlled access to management ports on Azure VMs. This drastically reduces exposure to brute force and other network attacks.

Centralized Policy Management

Ensure compliance with internal or external regulatory security requirements by centrally managing security policies across all your hybrid cloud workloads and resources.

Security Policy Settings - Policies for your server workloads can be tailored to your type of workload or the sensitivity of your data. For example, applications that use regulated data, such as personally identifiable information, might require a higher level of security than other workloads. You can set the following Policies:

Data Collection: Determines agent provisioning and data collection settings. Data collection is required to provide visibility into missing updates, misconfigured OS security settings, endpoint protection enablement, and health and threat detections.

Security Policy: Determines which controls Security Center monitors and recommends. You can edit the security policy in Azure Security Center to help identify potential vulnerabilities and mitigate threats.

Email Notifications: Determines security contacts, and email notification settings.

Pricing Tiers

The tier you choose determines which Security Center features are available to you.

The Free tier is automatically enabled on all Azure subscriptions and provides security policy, continuous security assessment, and actionable security recommendations to help you protect your Azure resources.

The Standard tier extends the capabilities of the Free tier to workloads running in private and other public clouds, providing unified security management and threat protection across your hybrid cloud workloads. The Standard tier also adds advanced threat detection capabilities, which uses built-in behavioral analytics and machine learning to identify attacks and zero-day exploits, access and application controls to reduce exposure to network attacks and malware, and more. The Standard tier is free for the first 60 days.

Continuous Security Assessment

Monitors the security posture of machines, networks, storage and data services, and applications to discover potential security vulnerabilities.

Health Monitoring - Provides a list of resources and how vulnerable they are to possible attacks.

Integrated Threat Intelligence - Looks for security risks by leveraging security data collected from Microsoft products globally.

Behavioral Analytics - Applies known patterns to discover malicious behavior.

Anomaly Detection - Uses statistical profiling to build a historical baseline and alerts on events which deviate from established norms.

additional Benefit Include

Actionable Recommendations
Remediate security vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by attackers with prioritized and actionable security recommendations.

Advanced Cloud Defenses
Reduce threats with just in time access to management ports and adaptive application controls running on your VMs.

Integrated Security Solutions Collect, search, and analyze security data from a variety of sources, including connected partner solutions.

Microsoft azure security key takeaways

Organizations should have a plan protecting their cloud instances and responding when attacked.

IAM is key to mitigating intentional or accidental manipulation of data and cloud resources.

Visibility means everything in reducing weak points in a security system.

Automation is crucial for saving time and making security practices more efficient.

Firewalls prevent hackers from accessing where data is stored while encryption prevents hackers from accessing the data itself.

talk to our cloud expert


In my opinion the best thing is to protect against threats, whether in Azure or not, via hybrid workloads in the cloud.

-Balhaar Balakrishnan

Having visibility of who and how my resources are used in the cloud allows me to have 360-degree visibility.

-Charan Bhatt

It really is a powerful piece of kit. Every security item you really need for your Azure deployment is at your fingertips and, if you're a novice, you can set what you need and the rest should take care if itself

-Ekavir Jain


At times, Azure can be a very complicated platform. It can take a while to understand the entire platform comprehensively. Your IT team may need to spend hours to understand Azure completely. There are wide range of options available for Azure deployment, which can overwhelm a first-time user. Also, the Azure platform is unmanaged.

Our Microsoft-certified experts at XcellHost will help you understand the Azure platform, guiding you with all the technical nuances that come with Azure management. We will provide server management, platform management, and instance management that includes patching, OS hardening, 24/7 monitoring, automatic backup and updates, disaster recovery etc.
