Microsoft Defender for Cloud now has two new capabilities that will enhance DevOps platform management and insight into cloud security posture.
The first, the Microsoft Defender for DevOps, is a centralized platform that helps businesses prioritize critical code issues and secure applications as they are developed.
Another major feature, the Microsoft Defender Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM), will leverage Defenders existing [security posture insights] capabilities to assist businesses identify the most vulnerable individuals to attack.
Microsoft Defender CSPM will notify IT administrators of where their infrastructure is vulnerable to attack, while Microsoft Defender for DevOps will make it simpler and faster for them to respond manually to untapped vulnerabilities or active threats.
Defender CSPM''s agentless scanning capabilities will save IT teams time by allowing them to integrate Defender for DevOps only to monitor the most significant risks to vital infrastructure.
This should increase the lives of IT managers; Microsoft believes that the two services working in tandem may reduce recommendation noise by up to 99%.
These two new features follow the release of Microsoft Defender External Attack Surface Management earlier this year, which aims to alert IT teams to unprotected endpoints across their organization. For automated patch management, which can counteract some of these limitations, IT teams may look to Azure.
The Microsoft Defender Clouds dashboard has all of the latest features.
