Two weeks back Microsoft CEO highlighted how they improve security and their over 1 billion annual investments on security solutions. He clearly iterates security is not a separate component but integral part of Microsoft solutions. Looking closely at Microsoft current business model it is very clear this statement stands true due to their expansion on cloud based solutions.

So today we’re talking about another step forward from Microsoft with the introduction of Azure Security Center (Preview version).
