Many security announcements were shared this week including Azure Key Vault Managed Hardware Security Module was made generally available, general data scientist roles added to RBAC capabilities in Azure Machine Learning, eliminating data silos with large-scale NFS workloads in Azure Blob Storage, Microsoft Defender unmanaged device protection capabilities and a security focused Microsoft Learn Module of the week.
Managed HSM offers a fully managed, highly available, single-tenant, high-throughput, standards-compliant cloud service to safeguard cryptographic keys for your cloud applications, using FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated HSMs.
Key features and benefits:
Azure Key Vault Managed HSM is another service that is built on Azure's confidential computing platform. Azure confidential computing protects the confidentiality and integrity of your data and code while it's processed in the public cloud.
The RBAC capabilities in Azure Machine Learning now offers a new pre-built role defined for the general data scientist user. When assigned, this role will allow a user to perform all actions within a workspace, except for creating/deleting the compute and any workspace level operations.
Text Classification labeling capability in Azure Machine Learning studio allows our users to create text labeling projects and assign labels to their text documents. It supports text classification either multi-label or multi-class project types.
Environments in the Azure Machine Learning studio allows you to create and edit environments through the UI. You can also view both custom and curated environments in your workspace as well as details around properties, dependencies, and image build logs.
Azure Blob Storage, Microsoft's object storage platform for storing large-scale data, recieves Network File System (NFS) 3.0 protocol support for Azure Blob Storage now generally available. Many organizations from various industries such as manufacturing, media, life science, financial services, and automotive have embraced this feature during our preview and are deploying their workloads in production and have been using NFS 3.0 for a wide array of workloads such as high-performance computing (HPC), analytics, and backup.
To get started, check out this video on introducing NFS 3.0 support for Azure Blob Storage and read more about the NFS 3.0 protocol support in Azure Blob Storage.
Microsoft recently announced the general availablilty of a new set of capabilities that gives Microsoft Defender for Endpoint customers visibility over unmanaged devices running on their networks addressing some of the greatest risks to an organization’s cybersecurity posture. This release delivers the following set of new capabilities:
