Enable remote work while keeping cloud deployments secure

As our customers shift to remote work in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, many have asked how to maintain the security posture of their cloud assets. Azure Security Center security controls can help you monitor your security posture as usage of cloud assets increases. These are three common scenarios:

  1. Enable multi-factor authentication (MFA) to enhance identity protection.
  2. Use just-in-time (JIT) VM access for users that need remote access via RDP or SSH to servers that are in your Azure infrastructure.
  3. Review the “Remediate vulnerabilities control” in Azure Security Center to identify critical security updates needed workloads (servers, containers, databases) that will be accessed remotely.
