Microsoft Codename "SQL Azure Security Services"

30 Jan

Scan your databases for security vulnerabilities

Microsoft Codename "SQL Azure Security Services" is an easy-to-use Web application that enables you to assess the security state of one or all of the databases on your SQL Azure server. The service scans databases for security vulnerabilities and provides you a report. You can use the recommendations and best practices provided in the report to improve the security state of your databases. The steps are simple:

  1. Provide your SQL Azure account credentials to the service.

  2. Choose the target for the report: Display in your browser or send to Windows Azure Blob storage.

  3. View the report and get details from supporting documentation.

  4. Take the corrective steps recommended in the report to secure your data.

  5. Provide feedback on the data protection services you want in SQL Azure.

"SQL Azure Security Services" is an early prototype for solving the problem of securing your data in the cloud: no matter where it is, whatever the capacity and scale. Your feedback is very valuable. We look forward to hearing from you!
