Oopps! Upgrade your browser pretty please.Oopps! Upgrade your browser pretty please.

If you are worried about the security of SQL Azure, there is an early prototype of SQL Azure Security Services that you can use to scan your database to find any vulnerabilities. It is an easy to use Web application that will give you a report in your web browser or in your Azure storage. If the SQL Azure Security Services finds any security issues, you’ll get a description and the a recommendation of how to fix the problem. It is nice to find the security threats that exists in my database, but I would also like to see all the security threats that doesn’t exists in my database. For my database there was only reported one issue, but I can’t see what  vulnerabilities that have been tested and that makes me worried. Does the Security Services test all the possible threats? Well, it’s an early prototype and the final version may be more informative.
