Overview of this book

Whether you are trying to re-architect a legacy app or build a cloud-ready app from scratch, using the Azure ecosystem with .NET and Java technologies helps you to strategize and plan your app modernization process effectively. With this book, you’ll learn how to modernize your applications by using Azure for containerization, DevOps, microservices, and serverless solutions to reduce development time and costs, while also making your applications robust, secure, and scalable. You will delve into improving application efficiency by using container services such as Azure Container Service, Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), and more. Next, you will learn to modernize your application by implementing DevOps throughout your application development life cycle. You will then focus on increasing the scalability and performance of your overall application with microservices, before learning how to add extra functionality to your application with Azure serverless solutions. Finally, you’ll get up to speed with monitoring and troubleshooting techniques. By the end of this book, you will have learned how to use the Azure ecosystem to refactor, re-architect, and rebuild your web, mobile, and desktop applications.

Azure Security Center

In previous sections, we looked at many tools and techniques to secure your Azure resources in a very comprehensive way. Azure Security Center combines them all and gives a holistic view of the security posture of your Azure organization and beyond. 

Once you enable Azure Security Center, it examines and continuously monitors your environment, performs a security assessment, and provides you with a number called secure score. The secure score is calculated based on various security practices followed in your environment based on their importance; a higher security score would mean that you're following most of the security best practices. 

Put simply, the Security Center does the job of a security analyst by providing you with an overall security report of your IT environment. You can also use the Security Center to assess security...
