  1. Support other Antivirus products in Malware Assessment

    I added the Malware Assessment Intelligence Pack today, and it seems to be listing all of my servers as not having any real time AV protection. The servers in question are running Symantec Endpoint Protection. I looked in the description of the intelligence pack to see what AV products it works with, but didn't find that info.

    [Edited during forum migration: comments/responses in the old forum included Symantec and Sophos]

    • Allow custom flexible Security events filtering

      Security solution now allows filter security events: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/msoms/2016/11/08/filter-the-security-events-the-oms-security-collects/

      It will be good if this solution also support a "Custom" option to allow customers to specify what events to collect (in addition to pre-configured lists). Also it will be good if the customer supplied filter supports wildcards and RegEx support.

      • Combine OMS and Azure Security Center

        Now we have 2 different solutions in Azure... OMS and Azure Security Center. Both looks not bad, but paying twice - it's not the best business approach. Also it's looks like duplication(I know the difference, but it's still very close to each other)

        I think we(Microsoft) can create Solution in OMS that will consume security info from Security Center.

        • ArcSight

          Allow for third party Security Information Event Management (SIEM) tools to be operated in the cloud to monitor the event logs. Solutions such as HP ArcSight are ideally suited to monitor event data to enrich the security analytics.

          • Add support for Virtual Machine Scale Sets

            We use VM scale sets when provisioning our environment in Azure. These scale set VMs are not supported by Azure Security Center. Please consider adding support for VM scale sets.

            • Alert acknowledgement

              Is there a way to acknowledge Alert so the email notifications are no longer triggered? For example Malware was stopped on a PC, alert triggered an email notification that malware was detected and stopped/remediated .. I looked at the alert and issue and all is OK, .but the alert keeps sending email messages?

                • Export to CSV

                  Interested in generating reports on recommendations or security alerts in Security Center? If you could export this data to a CSV, you could create your own reports in Excel or PowerBI to share with others within in organization. Vote for this idea if you would export Security Center data to a CSV.

                  • Support for ATA

                    It would be valuable to get support for ATA for Azure Active Directory in ASC. We like the visual workflow and investigations. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/server-cloud/products/advanced-threat-analytics/

                    • Provide ability to install SCEP from OMS

                      You provide a nice Malware Assessment, it would be nice to be able to install SCEP Client on systems so you can make sure all your systems are protected as well as analyzed.

                      • Support for letting apps send custom alerts to Security Center

                        For example, a security issue that an application looks for and detects. Allowing the application to send a message to security center, instead of some other log/location that might get overlooked.

                        • baseline exceptions or custom baselines

                          I would like the possibility to add additional baseline checks and override the default baseline checks.

                          For example I have additional groups in my denylogon user right assignments which now result in "failed" check.

                          • Integration with Azure OMS

                            Now we have at least 2 different azure features that covering Security topic.
                            Security Center and Azure Operation Management Suite.

                            Both looks not bad, but paying twice - it's not the best business approach. Also it's looks like duplication(I know the difference, but it's still very close to each other).

                            I think we(Microsoft) can create Solution in OMS that will consume security info from Security Center. Or Security Center could consume OMS logs.. Anyway- 2 entities, 2 times paying- it's not the best business approach.

                                  After posting a thread on the forums asking if Security Center was available on azure stack, I then received a response saying that it is not just yet ? I was wondering please could this be implemented in as from the long number of hours doing research into it, will be a shame to not see it there.
                                  Thanks

                                    • Include reponsible user to event

                                      Hi All, awsome product. Just did a test with vulnarabilty assessment. I introduced an eicar test string on one of our vm's. An event was triggerd in OMS. But seems there is some important information missing in the event. The username is not included. (EventId 1116, Microsoft Antimalware) does include the user. Would be a nice addition to include the username of the account that was "responsible" for the generation of the alert.

                                      • Missing Scan Data : better categorisation when VM Shutdown and Force data refresh

                                        Within Azure Security Center / Virtual Machine Stream, we have a "Missing scan data" substream.

                                        "Missing scan data" containing a list of VM on which :
                                        * The VM is turn-off
                                        * The VM is turn-on (some change was done on VM, ie. Antimalware install or not done, a Linux VM was installed, the Azure Agent is installed, but no scan happen (yet) on VM (but VM is running for 4/5 days).

                                        We believe the management could be improved :
                                        * Some data are missing (because VM is shutdown)
                                        * Some data could be collected, but Azure Security Center not…

                                        • security baseline failures

                                          I see post related to this, quite a few of the cce detections are messed up was is there an eta on getting these fixed.
                                          in this case its CCE-36977-7 that's creating false positives.
                                          thanks
