Happy Friday everyone!
I’m writing this as I finish up my week here in beautiful Orlando, Florida for the Live!360 conference. I have one more session to prep for and then I’ll be ready to head back home.
It’s been a wonderful week. Plenty of attendees (over 1,100!) who are attending their first post-Covid conference at the Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando. From what I’ve heard so far, just around 50% of the attendees are attending for their first time. And there’s many in the audience that have been in technology for less than 10 years.
That’s one great sign of a healthy community. Not only is this event attracting new people, but its attracting people also just starting out their technology careers.
This week, here’s an awesome opportunity for you to provide feedback, help Microsoft, and help yourself by helping build the product you want. I hope you take time to participate…
Pull Request Annotations in Defender for DevOps
Defender for DevOps exposes security findings as annotations in Pull Requests (PR). Security operators can enable PR annotations in Microsoft Defender for Cloud. Any exposed issues can then be remedied by developers. This process can prevent and fix potential security vulnerabilities and misconfigurations before they enter the production stage. Defender for DevOps annotates the vulnerabilities within the differences in the file rather than all the vulnerabilities detected across the entire file. Developers are able to see annotations in their source code management systems and Security operators can see any unresolved findings in Microsoft Defender for Cloud.
Please give your feedback on Pull Request annotations experience. Your feedback helps us make the feature better.
I don’t have a lot more to share this week as I’m deep into prepping for that last session, but after I’ve decompressed, I’ll share more insight into this great event.
P.S. Next week is the US Thanksgiving holiday, which means I’ll be out of the office on Thursday and Friday. For that reason, I’m pretty positive that this newsletter will deliver early next week - most likely on Wednesday instead of Friday - so keep an eye out on your inbox.
