Security Center is a centralized security management system that dynamically identifies and analyzes security threats, and generates alerts when threats are detected. Security Center provides ransomware protection, antivirus protection, web tamper protection, container image scan, and compliance assessments to ensure the security of cloud resources and servers in data centers. This allows you to automate security operations, responses, and threat tracing, and meet regulatory compliance requirements.
