What product should I use for Application Security in Azure?

Huy Tran 1 Reputation point

I am trying to figure out what prouduct or if a product exists that would use for application security in Azure. I would define application security as developing, adding, and testing security features within applications to prevent security vulnerabilities against threats such as unauthorized access and modification.

Microsoft Defender for Cloud
Microsoft Defender for Cloud
An Azure service that provides threat protection for workloads running in Azure, on-premises, and in other clouds. Previously known as Azure Security Center and Azure Defender.

    SSO, MFA, RBAC, Secure Access Controls, Defender for Cloud, Conditional Access Policies are critical for Azure and Apps that you want to protect and these are starting points.

    @Huy Tran
    Thank you for your post!

    When it comes to a specific product that could monitor your Azure applications and resources to determine if it's secure or not, we do have Microsoft Defender for Cloud which will continually assess, secure, and defend your workloads in real-time so you can react immediately and prevent security events from developing.


    Additionally, you can leverage Microsoft Sentinel to:

    • Collect data at cloud scale across all users, devices, applications, and infrastructure, both on-premises and in multiple clouds.
    • Detect previously undetected threats and minimize false positives using Microsoft's analytics and unparalleled threat intelligence.
    • Investigate threats with artificial intelligence, and hunt for suspicious activities at scale, tapping into years of cyber security work at Microsoft.
    • Respond to incidents rapidly with built-in orchestration and automation of common tasks.

    If this isn't what you're looking for, can you share what specific application (Web Apps, App Registrations, Mobile Apps, etc.) you're referring to, and what you're trying to do?

    I hope this helps!

    If you have any other questions, please let me know.
    Thank you for your time and patience throughout this issue.
