  1. Don't report "green" status in security health for items that you have chosen to exclude in your policy.

    For example, showing a green check icon under end point protection gives a false impression that its protected, when its not actually protected, it just that that check is being ignored.

    • Editing security policy, duplicate named blades

      When you click on Policy within the Prevention section of ASC, a blade opens called Security policy. When you click on a subscription or Resource group to edit policy, a new blade opens also called Security policy. This creates a bit of confusion when documenting Security Center features. Perhaps the blade where you edit policy should be called, "Edit security policy"?

            • Adaptative Application Control - Improve policy extension to use combination of path and hash

              The idea would be to be able using (but not mandatory) both path and hash to define a policy extension.

              • Adaptative Application Control - Improve policy extension to use wildcards within path

                The idea would be to use wildcards within the path to allow some built-in scripts/batches like %OSDRIVE%\USERS\<USERNAM>\APPDATA\LOCAL\TEMP\<NUMBER>\GETPATHS.CMD

                • Deploy EndPoint Protection (Anti Malware) & Monitoring Agents as Tenant level Policy

                  There are multiple ways to deploy EndPoint Protection and Monitoring Agents to the VM's. However, the agents are available, both for Free and Standard Azure Security Center editions at no additional cost. So why not create a Tenant level Policy or a Management Group led 'Root Policy' that automatically deploys the Anti Malware Agent as well as Monitoring Agent to all the VM's across all the Subscriptions within the Tenant.

                  This will preclude any short term possibility of (even ephemeral) VM's exposed to untoward attention and create a Risk for the Provider as well as the Consumer. As an enterprise,…

                  • Provide clearer information to users on implication of adding an account to a computer

                    When a user from company A who owns the computer, adds an account from company B who is his client then company B admins have access to his Bitlocker keys without any warning that they will be able to do this and any other policy actions that company B has implemented.

                    There should be clearer warning that this will happen and allow the user to change his/her mind. More details in case 118100219136816

                        • Provide support for downloading Security Center recommendations as PDF and as CSV

                          Similar to Advisor, provide the capability of exporting the recommendations as PDF and CSV so it can be shared and prioritized by others in the organization.

                          • (Geo) Country IP blocks are needed in NSGs

                            A well known method to mitigate Internet-based threats are country-based IP blocks. Many firewall vendors have this feature for a long time. Please make it possible to create "block lists" of countries (or "white lists" as well) and make NSG rules key on that.

                            • Allow custom flexible Security events filtering

                              Security solution now allows filter security events:

                              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.

                                If ASC is to becoming a meaningful tool at anything above SME level it requires event triage, whitelisting and tagging (flag as review with comment). Not helped by the lack of practical Unique ID that can be crossed referenced with existing SOC operations systems.

                                • About Security alert notify feature

                                  Administrators use ASC and confirm any alerts with notify e-mail.
                                  However, this e-mail feature can be sent only "High severity" incident.
                                  We want to confirm some "medium severity" incident as like DDOS alert.

                                  Additionally, Specific device is detected DDOS Alerts frequently (e.g. E-mail Server).
                                  So, We want to set any exclude rule or mitigate threshold against DDOS (or other security) alert.

                                  • SC data should be stored in a defined place.

                                    This defined place, say a storage account concept in the AAD tenant, should provide me with the ability to manage IAM, provide auditing on access and manage retention and export.

                                    The event data is currently stored 'somewhere', where I have no control over it.

                                    • List VMs missing patches

                                      List VMs missing patches by Server Name, not by patch. For a team of system admins who need to patch potentially hundreds of servers, listing them by each patch is very inefficient. The old security center interface listed servers, and showed an indicator when it was missing patches. Now we can't see which servers are missing patches until we click 5 or 6 levels in security center. IN addition, we now have to click on each outstanding patch to find out which server needs it! Man, please make list of servers showing if they're missing patches instead of a list…

                                      • Please give us option to migrate the azure security center from open subscription to CSP subscription

                                        we would have lot of custom policy on azure security center, but we cannot migrate it to all at the time of migration from one subscription to to another. so if there is option that would be great.

                                        • WIP status

                                          We have multiple team members working in Azure. It would be helpful to add a WIP status so other people know the event is being investigated.
