Track and remediate potential database vulnerabilities with SQL Vulnerability Assessment

This week's episode of Data Exposed welcomes Ronit Reger to the show! Ronit is a Senior PM on the SQL product team focusing on SQL security and data privacy, and today she is in the studio to talk about the hottest new feature to come out of the security group â€" SQL Vulnerability Assessment.

Vulnerability Assessment is a scanning service built into Azure SQL Database. The service employs a knowledge base of rules that identify security vulnerabilities and deviations from best practices, such as misconfigurations, excessive permissions, and exposed sensitive data. Results of the assessment include actionable steps to resolve each issue and customized remediation scripts where applicable. The assessment report can be customized for each environment and tailored to specific requirements.
