Last October, Microsoft launched the public preview of Azure Security Center. They followed that up with a progress report back in February. Today, Microsoft has made Azure Security Center generally available to all customers. Azure Security Center is one of several Microsoft initiatives that support the company’s compelling security agenda. Barracuda security solutions are tightly integrated with Microsoft Azure and the now generally available Azure Security Center, and we are pleased to be one of the go-to security providers in the new platform and throughout the Azure ecosystem.
Azure Security Center utilizes Microsoft’s vast global threat intelligence, and helps customers to gain visibility into the security state of their Azure resources. It allows them to take control of their cloud security policies, and monitors their security configurations while helping to detect and respond to active attacks. In many cases, the recommended action is to deploy a security tool. Azure Security Center makes it simple to find, deploy, and configure tools from partners like Barracuda.

We caught up with Michal Braverman-Blumenstyk and here’s what she had to say:
“We are excited to announce the general availability of Azure Security Center, and equally excited to integrate leading security solutions from partners like Barracuda,” said Michal Braverman-Blumenstyk, GM, Azure Cybersecurity at Microsoft. “Microsoft and Barracuda have worked closely together for a number of years, and this announcement expands on those efforts to help our mutual customers simplify and secure cloud migrations.”
Barracuda was the first Microsoft Azure Certified security solution provider, and continues to be one of the leading security providers in the Azure ecosystem. In fact, Barracuda was announced as the winner of the 2016 Microsoft Azure Certified ISV Solution Partner of the Year award. Microsoft recognized Barracuda for its continued technology innovation to help customers securely move workloads and applications into Azure.
