This week's episode of Data Exposed welcomes Ronit Reger to the show! Ronit is a Senior PM on the SQL product team focusing on SQL security and data privacy, and today she is in the studio to talk about the hottest new feature to come out of the security group â€" SQL Vulnerability Assessment.

Vulnerability Assessment is a scanning service built into Azure SQL Database. The service employs a knowledge base of rules that identify security vulnerabilities and deviations from best practices, such as misconfigurations, excessive permissions, and exposed sensitive data. Results of the assessment include actionable steps to resolve each issue and customized remediation scripts where applicable. The assessment report can be customized for each environment and tailored to specific requirements.

    Late to the party. Nice overview video. I have been looking to see how counts the various counts tie together e.g. my Sunday morning Vulnarbility Scan emails counts and the Dashboard...Security Center - Overview...Data security Overview and SQL tabs. The one to whom I report see the high level numbers and I am left trying to explain the manner in which they were created and how they tie to the emails. The email numbers don't roll up to anything.
