Enjoy the details below

1. Addition of new policies:

Added new policies for SQL Data warehouse, Network Security Groups (NSGs), CosmosDB and Office 365 security and compliance. Highlighted are some examples.

2. Dashboards:

2.1  Cloud Resources Dashboard

This dashboard showcases the security posture of the Azure and Office365 (if associated to the Azure AD) in with summaries available at the resource types, scorecard for addressable policies, Azure subscriptions and daily risk trends. Scorecard shows you total how many policies are addressable and how many of them are adhering to security best practices and any potential shortcomings. Displays risks trends (DoD) for various cloud resource types.

2.2  Azure Subscription Dashboard

2.3  Office 365 Security and Compliance Dashboard

The most common concern raised by customers is that a member of their organization became the victim of a phishing scam and the attacker obtained the password for their account, working online puts them at risk, how to determine whether your Office 365 account has been compromised. We recognized these risks and understands the need for our customers to have control over their security settings.

Office 365 security & compliance is tied to the Azure AD tenant and is available to any Office 365 Business Premium or Enterprise subscription holders, as long as you have administrative privileges. Checking your scorecards on a regular basis helps you figure what you are doing vs. not doing in order to protect your data. With Cloudneeti, you can still view the security insights without administrative privileges as long as you have O365 subscription associated with the Azure AD tenant. There will be no special configuration necessary for activating this service.
