As organizations migrate to the cloud and grow their cloud presence, the threat landscape and attack surfaces also expand and multiply.
Security teams that are responsible for their organization’s security posture need to drive the personnel within their organization to harden their workloads and remediate misconfigurations.
Security teams often find this task very tedious and sometimes almost impossible due to a lack of organized processes, unclear authority, or insufficient resources.
We are delighted to announce the public preview of a new security governance experience in Microsoft Defender for Cloud that allows security teams to drive these processes in a streamlined, consistent, transparent way.
With this novel experience, security teams can now assign owners and remediation timeframes for security recommendations in Microsoft Defender for Cloud. This lets them drive the process of improving the security posture, and provide organization-wide visibility of the process.
Resource owners can be guided to focus on only the security recommendations that have been assigned to them and be notified by email of their outstanding tasks.
You can start assigning owners and remediation timeframes to multi-cloud and hybrid cloud security recommendations by using automatic Governance rules or manually assigning owners and timeframe when needed.
