Azure Security Center can identify attacks targeting Azure App Service applications

Community Manager

One of Azure’s most popular service is App Service which enables customers to build and host web applications in the programming language of their choice without managing infrastructure. App Service offers auto-scaling and high availability, supports both Windows and Linux. It also supports automated deployments from GitHub, Visual Studio Team Services or any Git repository. At RSA, we announced that Azure Security Center leverages the scale of the cloud to identify attacks targeting App Service applications.

 

Vulnerabilities in web applications are frequently exploited by attackers, as they are a common and dynamic interface for almost every organization on the internet. Requests to applications running on top of App Service go through several gateways deployed in Azure datacenters around the world, responsible for routing each request to its corresponding application. Recently, Security Center and App Service embarked on a journey aimed at building a security offering to support App Service customers.
