Introducing Microsoft Defender for Azure Cosmos DB
Databases are constantly evolving to handle new use cases, incorporate more intelligence and store more data, giving developers and organizations a wide range of database types to meet their varying needs. There are unique aspects to each database type, including authentication methods, configuration options, architecture, and capabilities. This means that the security threats are also unique – requiring custom security measures and protection capabilities to address the most common threats across databases.
Microsoft Defender for Cloud provides advanced protection for different types of databases including SQL databases, including Azure Database for PostgreSQL, Azure Database for MySQL, Azure Database for MariaDB and now Azure Cosmos DB.
We’re excited to announce that Microsoft Defender for Azure Cosmos DB is now generally available for SQL (Core) API accounts.
