Vulnerability management approach
Microsoft Antimalware for Azure cloud services is a real-time protection capability that helps identify and remove viruses, spyware, and other malicious software.
Distributed denial-of-service defenses. To protect its cloud services, Microsoft provides a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) defense system that is part of the Azure continuous monitoring and penetration-testing processes. Azure uses standard detection and mitigation techniques such as SYN cookies, rate limiting, and connection limits to protect against DDoS attacks
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
Relevant sources of information relating to threat, vulnerability and exploitation are monitored. Microsoft’s Security Response Center (MSRC) regularly monitors external security vulnerability awareness sites. As part of the routine vulnerability management process, Microsoft evaluates our exposure to these vulnerabilities and leads action across Microsoft to mitigate risks when necessary.
This is in compliance with ISO 27001. “Control of technical vulnerabilities” is covered under the ISO 27001 standards, specifically addressed in Annex A, domain 12.6.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
Microsoft has developed robust processes to facilitate a coordinated response to incidents if one was to occur and contractual obligations in the Data Processing Agreement require Microsoft to notify customers promptly in the event of a breach affecting their data. The process is validated through the ISO 27001 audit provisions provided by the service. Security incidents may include, but are not limited to: e-mail viruses, malware, worms, denial of service attacks, unauthorized access, and any other type of unauthorized, or unlawful activity involving Microsoft computer networks or data processing equipment.
