Microsoft’s Operations Management Suite gets new security features

Microsoft has just announced that they’ve given the Operations Management Suite (OMS) new security features. It’s all a part of the company’s ongoing efforts to help organizations who use OMS to better meet operations management challenges as they adopt hybrid cloud models for IT.

Now, with  OMS Security, organizations can quickly detect active security threats. According to Microsoft, OMS Security will continuously monitor the environment for security vulnerabilities such as missing critical security updates, anti-malware, and recommended security configuration baselines.

Microsoft is also highlighting the fact that OMS Security will bring the security analytics that are built into Azure Security Center to hybrid cloud environments. According to the Redmond giant, this will give organizations the capabilities they need to handle today’s security threats.

With OMS Security, you can quickly assess the security posture of your hybrid cloud environment and detect active security threats. OMS Security will continuously monitor the environment for security vulnerabilities such as missing critical security updates, antimalware, and recommended security configuration baselines. To detect active security threats and attacks, the service leverages powerful event analysis paired with threat intelligence derived from Microsoft’s own cloud experience. You can centralize management for protecting systems, as well as creating alerts, implementing automatic security updates across systems, and applying security policies. A simple approach to search and queries across all data sources lets you streamline the security audit process with easy access to comprehensive and actionable security log data. With these new capabilities, IT administrators can avoid being blindsided by a breach and alert the security team if they see indicators of compromise. Security response teams can then use the same simple search capabilities to rapidly get a view across operations and security data to help stop the threat.

And so, if you’re the owner of an organization or large business, you can check out the complete details of the OMS security features, and how to purchase it, by visiting this webpage. As always, though, be sure to drop us a comment below with your thoughts on this latest set of news!
