Security threats increase in volume and sophistication every day. And regardless of your organization’s size or the industry you’re in, Azure Security Center threat detection capabilities, alerts, and recommended fixes can give you the tangible data you need to help protect your cloud resources. Plus, you can monitor your on-premises, hybrid, or cloud environment—Azure, Amazon, or any other public cloud—to get a more complete picture.
In Hybrid Cloud Workload Protection with Azure Security Center, a new course now available on Microsoft Virtual Academy, Yuri Diogenes and Ty Balascio offer an overview of Azure Security Center, including requirements, planning, onboarding, and troubleshooting. Ty and Yuri work with real-world data and share their experience in the industry to show how the threat landscape differs for a cloud or hybrid versus on-premises. And they explore threat detection and response in a lab environment so they can talk you through it.
Check out this detailed demo of using the investigation dashboard to drill down on an incident. You’ll see how to correlate multiple entities that are part of the same attack so you can understand how an attack moves against each host in a system. You’ll learn how to use that information to continue your investigation and pursue closure of your incident response.
If you can’t access the UNIX/Linux computers view in the Administration pane in Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Operations Manager, then you probably receive the following error message:
Date: 12/30/2017 7:48:49 PM Application: Operations Manager Application Version: 7.1.10226.1360 Severity: Error Message: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at Microsoft.SystemCenter.CrossPlatform.UI.OM.Integration.UnixComputerOperatingSystemHelper.JoinCollections(IEnumerable`1 managementServers, IEnumerable`1 resourcePools, IEnumerable`1 unixcomputers, IEnumerable`1 operatingSystems) at Microsoft.SystemCenter.CrossPlatform.UI.OM.Integration.UnixComputerOperatingSystemHelper.GetUnixComputerOperatingSystemInstances(String criteria) at Microsoft.SystemCenter.CrossPlatform.UI.OM.Integration.Administration.UnixAgentQuery.DoQuery(String criteria) at Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Mom.Internal.UI.Cache.Query`1.DoQuery(String criteria, Nullable`1 lastModified) at Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Mom.Internal.UI.Cache.Query`1.FullUpdateQuery(CacheSession session, IndexTable& indexTable, Boolean forceUpdate, DateTime queryTime) at Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Mom.Internal.UI.Cache.Query`1.InternalSyncQuery(CacheSession session, IndexTable indexTable, UpdateReason reason, UpdateType updateType) at Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Mom.Internal.UI.Cache.Query`1.InternalQuery(CacheSession session, UpdateReason reason) at Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Mom.Internal.UI.Cache.Query`1.TryDoQuery(UpdateReason reason, CacheSession session) at Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Mom.Internal.UI.Console.ConsoleJobExceptionHandler.ExecuteJob(IComponent component, EventHandler`1 job, Object sender, ConsoleJobEventArgs args)
The issue occurs if the UNIX/Linux monitoring resource pool is deleted
How to solve it!
To resolve the issue, follow these steps:
- Create a resource pool for UNIX/Linux monitoring. Give the new pool a different name than the name of the deleted resource pool.
- Add the management servers that perform UNIX/Linux monitoring to the new resource pool.
- Configure the UNIX/Linux Run As accounts to be distributed by the new resource pool. To do this, follow these steps:
- In the Operations console, go to Administration > Run As Configuration > UNIX/Linux Accounts.
- For each account, follow these steps:
– Right-click the account, and then select Properties.
– On the Distribution Security page of the UNIX/Linux Run As Accounts Wizard, select More Secure.
– In Selected computers and resource pools, select Add.
– Select Search by resource pool name, and then select Search.
– Select the new resource pool that is created in step 1, select Add, and then select OK.
- Run the following PowerShell cmdlet to retrieve the managed UNIX and Linux computers:
- Verify that the agents that are associated with the deleted resource pool still exist and that the relationship remains.
- Run the following command to change the managing resource pool to the one that is created in step 1:
$SCXPool = Get-SCOMResourcePool -DisplayName "<New Resource Pool Name>"
Get-SCXAgent | Set-SCXResourcePool -ResourcePool $SCXPool
As of now Managed Applications are Generally Available in the Azure Marketplace. We from OpsLogix couldn’t be more excited as a launch partner with Microsoft to be one of the first to offer Managed Application services to our customers.
“Azure Managed Applications enables OpsLogix customers to easily deploy and use our solutions without having to undertake on-going maintenance and servicing complexities.”
Vincent de Vries, CEO, OpsLogix
Azure Managed Applications
Azure Managed Applications enable Managed Service Provider (MSP) and Independent Software Vendor (ISV) partners and enterprise IT teams to deliver fully managed, turnkey cloud solutions that can be made available through the Azure Marketplace or through the enterprise service catalog of a specific end-customer. Customers can quickly deploy managed applications in their own subscription and rely on the partner for maintenance operations and support across the life cycle.
Azure Managed Applications is an additional partner opportunity to expand beyond infrastructure and software, by attaching services and operational support to Azure solutions. Partners using Managed Applications can invoice customers directly using Azure’s billing system (when publishing at Azure Marketplace) and use Azure Resource Manager templates to support the lifecycle of deployed applications. All of this enables an even richer cloud ecosystem for our customers and new business opportunities for our partners.
Azure Marketplace as a Distribution Channel for Azure Managed Applications
Managed applications can now be published and made available at the Azure Marketplace on the Azure Portal. Once published by the partner, they are available for any commercial customer with an Azure subscription. This enables MSP and ISV partners to market their solutions to a broader market. Partners are responsible for maintaining, servicing and upgrading the applications, once deployed by a customer. Customers benefit as they are able to run complex solutions without deep time and resource investments.
OpsLogix as a Key Launch Partner
We are excited to share that OpsLogix is among the key partners such as Cisco and Xcalar on Managed Applications. Our OpsLogix OMS Oracle Solution as a Managed Application is already live and published on the marketplace and can be consumed.
We are currently offering the “OpsLogix OMS Oracle Solution” Managed Application on the Azure marketplace. It enables you to get a holistic view of your Oracle environment by inserting your Oracle monitoring and auditing data into OMS with the OpsLogix OMS Oracle Solution Managed Application. Not only does the OpsLogix OMS Oracle Solution provide performance and availability metrics, it also allows you to audit your Oracle environment, enabling you to be compliant within hours.
