At Microsoft Ignite today, the company has announced a new security mechanism solely focused on securing SQL Server data and workloads.
SQL Vulnerability Assessment seeks to discover, track, and remediate potential database vulnerabilities and works for Azure SQL Database and for on-premises SQL Server. The scan is lightweight and safe, takes a few seconds to run, and is entirely read-only.
See the SQL Vulnerability Assessment docs for full information.
