"Scalability is its most valuable feature.""Instead of proving that all the access control lists are in place and all the EPGs are correct, we can just point the auditor to a dashboard and point out that there aren't any escaped conversations. It saves an enormous, enormous amount of time.""A complete and powerful micro-segmentation solution.""The most valuable feature of the solution is that we don't have to do packet captures on the network.""The product offers great visibility into the network so we can enforce security measures.""The most valuable feature of this solution is security.""The solution offers 100% telemetry coverage. The telemetry you collect is not sampled, it's not intermittent. It's complete. You see everything in it, including full visibility of all activities on your endpoints and in your network.""The most valuable feature is micro-segmentation, which is the most important with respect to visibility."

Cons
"No possibility to write or edit any capability.""When you work with it, the only problem that we're struggling with is that we have 21 different subscriptions we're trying to apply security to. It's impossible to keep everything organized.""The solution is quite complex. A lot of the different policies that actually get applied don't pertain to every client. If you need to have something open for a client application to work, then you get dinged for having a port open or having an older version of TLS available.""Pricing could be improved. There are limited options based on pricing for the government.""From a compliance standpoint, they can include some more metrics and some specific compliances such as GDPR.""It needs to be simplified and made more user-friendly for a non-technical person.""The initial setup is not actually so complex but it feels complex because there are many add-ons. There are many options and my team needs to be aware of all of these changes happening on the backend which is a distraction.""The documentation and implementation guides could be improved."

More Azure Security Center Cons »

"It is not so easy to use and configure. It needs a bunch of further resources to work, which is mainly the biggest downside of it. The deployment is huge.""They should scale down the hardware a bit. The initial hardware investment is two million dollars so it's a price point problem. The issue with the price comes from the fact that you have to have it with enormous storage and enormous computes.""It has an uninviting interface.""I'd like to see better documentation for advanced features. The documentation is fairly basic. I would also like to see better integration with other applications.""The emailed notifications are either hard to find or they are not available. Search capabilities can be improved.""The interface is really helpful for technical people, but it is not user-friendly.""The multi-tenancy, redundancy, backup and restore functionalities, as well as the monitoring aspects of the solution, need improvement. The solution offers virtually no enterprise-grade possibility for monitoring.""There is some overlap between Cisco Tetration and AppDynamics and I need to have a single pane of glass, rather than have to jump between different tools."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I'm not privy to that information, but I know it's probably close to a million dollars a year.""We are using the free version of the Azure Security Center."

More Azure Security Center Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The price is outrageous. If you have money to throw at the product, then do it.""Pricing depends on the scope of the application and the features. Larger installations save more.""It is not cheap and pricing may limit scalability.""The price is based on how many computers you're going to install it on."

Overview

Security posture management for your cloud workloads
Quickly assess your security posture with Secure Score. This feature provides recommendations with numeric values to help you prioritize your responses.

Ensure you’re following best practices and fix common misconfigurations for Azure infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) resources that may include:

-Failure to deploy system updates on virtual machines (VMs).
-Unnecessary exposure to the Internet through public-facing endpoints.
-Unencrypted data in transit or storage.

When you address these, easily deploy Microsoft and partner solutions directly from the Azure portal.

Customize your security policy to focus on what you need to—for example, check for web application firewalls or storage encryption—and apply your policy to multiple Azure subscriptions. Gain visibility across your environment to verify compliance with regulatory requirements, such as CIS, PCI DSS, SOC, and ISO.

Cisco Tetration offers holistic workload protection for multicloud data centers by enabling a zero-trust model using segmentation. This approach allows you to identify security incidents faster, contain lateral movement and reduce your attack surface. Its infrastructure-agnostic approach supports both on-premises and public cloud workloads.
