What do you like best?

It really is a powerful piece of kit. Every security item you really need for your Azure deployment is at your fingertips and, if you're a novice, you can set what you need and the rest should take care if itself, and if you're an advanced user, you can fine tune almost anything required. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As is fairly common for MSFT cloud portals, the menu structure can be a bit labyrinthine and confusing until you get used to where things are. Performance isn't the best - it tends to be somewhat unresponsive but zippy once things load - but it gets better with each iteration. It finally doesn't feel like a beta release for public consumption. I would like to see more functionality with GPO and a way to manage devices more like an on-prem solution. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do your homework and learn the well-documented ins and outs. Anything Azure doesn't follow the same logic and workflow as on-prem solutions, so admins new to Azure can easily get lost. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Doing support for a CSP, I find myself in Security Center often to help clients troubleshoot issues such as errors to their security policies that may have been fine when implemented but didn't scale very well as their consumption increased. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like the simple layout and easy usability of the software. It comes in two versions one is a free and other one is a advanced one. In free versions you get numerous advantages as security evaluation and endorsements which is pretty cool for a newbie and amazing security policies. Though I haven't used the advance version but definitely gonna purchase it sooner or later as it an amazing application for data security. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The dashboard itself, even the "basic" (or free) one you get out of the box gives you enough visibility and recommendations to start with. For example, enabling auditing on SQL databases (if you have any) or making sure your storage has is healthy and has encryption enabled.

The free tier, for Azure resources only, gives you:

* Security assessment

* Security recommendations

* Basic security policy

* Connected partner solutions

Moving to the standard or advanced tier gives you even MORE functionality such as:

* Just in time VM Access (a must if you use VM's but careful with pricing)

* Adaptive application controls

* Network threat detection

Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not that I actually dislike it, but it is something that affects all cloud-based technologies or dashboards: you cannot get used to something as soon enough new features will be rolled out and the layout will change.

With more and more features being rolled out into GA this will be your daily battle with the portal, learning what's new. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Spend some time first with a trial subscription to get the hang of it, deploy some vm's get familiar with policies, and enabling features such as auditing and threat detection, then dive into your full subscription. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It lowers the TCO dramatically when implementing security solutions such as SIEM or FIM (this one is in preview as I write this) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
