The Azure Security Center (ASC) analysts team reviews and investigates ASC alerts to gain insight into security incidents affecting Microsoft Azure customers, helping improve Azure Security alerts and detections. ASC helps customers keep pace with rapidly evolving threats by using advanced analytics and global threat intelligence.

The beauty of ASC lies in its simplicity. Although ASC uses machine learning, anomaly detection, and behavioral analysis to determine suspicious events, it still addresses simple things like SQL brute force attacks that Bad Guys/Script Kiddies are using to break into Microsoft SQL servers.
