Microsoft Azure virtual machine (VM) activity reporting

Microsoft Azure enables users to deploy Azure virtual machines (VM) in an organization. Logging is crucial when using VMs, as it allows IT administrators to effectively manage the platform and helps security administrators track actions that have been performed. VM activity logs not only prove useful for specific security incidents, but also on a day-to-day basis.

Cloud Security Plus easily captures and analyzes VM activity logs to generate reports on VM activity. These reports record actions such as the creation, deletion, and modification of VMs. This information is useful during security incidents because it points towards the cause of security problems. Tracking VM activity is also useful on a day-to-day basis because knowing which VMs haven't been used for a long period of time can help organizations reduce costs.

From a security perspective, if a user's VM has mysteriously stopped, the security administrator can look up the VM activity report from Cloud Security Plus to quickly identify who performed the action that caused it to stop and when.
