Security Centre

Azure Security Centre's Basic (default) tier provides analysis and visualisation tools for working with Azure resources. The Standard tier also provides a suite of tools for further securing resources.

At a glance, it offers:

  • Centralised security policy management.
  • Baseline security assessment of resources.
  • Actionable recommendations for security improvements.
  • Prioritised alerts about vulnerabilities and incidents.
  • Integration with external security solutions.

JIT VM access

The Standard tier provides JIT VM access, which temporarily assigns a VM with a public IP address when one's requested via the Portal or ARM REST API.
