Monitoring SQL Server Security at Scale

Ed Leighton-Dick

Few tasks are more important to maintaining a secure SQL Server system than continuous monitoring, but the built-in logging and auditing tools can only monitor a single instance. Monitoring all of your instances using those tools is time-intensive and laborious. What you need is to monitor at scale.

Luckily, Microsoft has a solution for that. Azure now has the capability to monitor and assess all your SQL Server instances: cloud-native, hybrid, and on-premises. In this session, we’ll take a look at these capabilities, including how to connect your on-premises systems to Azure for management and how to use Azure Sentinel, Microsoft’s new SIEM tool for analyzing logs.
