Microsoft this morning announced the general availability of Operations Management Suite Security, which brings to hybrid cloud environments the same security analytics built into Microsoft’s recently released Azure Security Center, the company said.
OMS Security lets administrators assess the security of a hybrid cloud set-up and continually monitor the environment for threats, Microsoft said. It allows determining whether anti-malware software has been installed and kept up to date, whether security updates have been omitted, and whether failed log-in attempts exceed the norm. It also shows where attacks are coming from and puts alerts in order of priority.
Using cloud-based security measures allows quick scaling with a minimal investment of time to get started, Microsoft said. OMS is available via subscription and as an add-on for existing customers.
