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 »

"They could give a few more insights into security groups and recommendations on how to be more effective. That's getting more into the AWS environment, specifically. I'm not sure if that's Threat Stack's plan or not, but I would like them to help us be efficient about how we're setting up security groups. They could recommend separation of VPCs and the like - really dig into our architecture. I haven't seen a whole lot of that and I think that's something that, right off the bat, could have made us smarter.""The compliance and governance need improvement."

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 »

"What we're paying now is somewhere around $15 to $20 per agent per month, if I recall correctly. The other cost we have is SecOps."
