  1. SQL Azure Firewall Rules recommendations to report very large IP ranges

    What currently is not reported is a very large range of IP addresses enabling access to SQL Azure. A rule 0.0.0.0- 255.255.255.255 will not be reported at all by Security Centre, but does pose a risk to the Database if the password and account is not strong and complex enough.

      • Suppressing Individual alerts in Security Center

        Currently there is no way to suppress or make a alert silent for a particular time frame or permanently. This is one thing which will really help if implemented. At times security center keeps throwing alert for a process which you know is not malicious but have no way to stop Security Center send email alerts repeatedly for the same thing.
        There should be a way to either stop or suppress, individual alerts so that one can focus on other alerts and take action on them instead of thinking it is the same alert and no action is required

        • 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…

            • Azure Security Center should monitor which NSG rules are used

              ASC should provide recommendation for which NSG rules that needs to be reviewed, if they are not used for a long time.

              This would be great

                  • Adjust baseline requirements to support IIS servers or custom environment changes.

                    The baseline scans are failing on IIS servers, so maybe a more generic way to adjust the baseline rules on virtual machines would be helpful.

                    An example of the the scenario is described here.

                    • Dismissing WAF Alerts Should Turn Application Tile Green

                      According to the product group, dismissing a Web Application Firewall not present alert is not supposed to turn the application tile green. This is done on purpose as to not give the user a false-sense of security. However, the reason the dismiss button exists is so that users who are aware of this and have other measures in place can dismiss the item and turn the application tile green.

                      There are cases where a WAF may be in use but ASC isn't aware of that. Such as a VM running a network appliance with a built in WAF from a…

                            Today, Azure Security Center provides monitoring for Virtual Machines (including VMs that are part of Service Fabric Clusters), Virtual Networks, and Azure SQL Database. What about Cloud Services (Web and Worker roles)? Do you want to be able to manage security for Cloud Services in Security Center as well? If so, vote for this idea and share any specific requirements in the comments.

                                    • Incorrect Baseline CCE-37439-7

                                      CCE-37439-7

                                      ...RuleSetting:LocalMachine\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon : cachedlogonscount
                                      ...ExpectedResult:4
                                      ...ActualResult:NOT_EXISTS

                                      This shows as not exists even though the registry value exists. Maybe its checking for an integer when it should really be checking for a string?

                                      • CCE-37701-0 Incorrect Baseline

                                        CCE-37701-0

                                        ...RuleSetting:LocalMachine\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon : AllocateDASD
                                        ...ExpectedResult:0
                                        ...ActualResult:NOT_EXISTS

                                        The above baseline shows as non-existent even though it exists.

                                        Is the rule checking for a string or integer as this should be a string value per microsoft
