Effectively manage site security from the Power Platform Admin Center

Introductions:

Security is crucial for any website, portal, or application. With the Power Platform Admin Center, you can manage websites within your tenant and access key information. This includes details such as the remaining days before a trial website expires also metrics like the number of sites without Web Application Firewall (WAF) protection or those utilizing external authentication. By checking these insights regularly, you’ll know if your websites are safe from cyber threats. If you find any issues, you can take action to fix them and make sure your websites stay protected.

To monitor the security of all websites within your tenant effectively, follow these steps:

Anonymous access enabled

“Anonymous access enabled” indicates websites in Microsoft Dataverse where some tables allow access to data without logging in. This means at least one table permission grants access to anonymous users. For further details, visit Table permissions and click “View details” to review the settings for each website.

Site security health

The Site Security Health Dashboard summarizes the security status of your organization’s websites based on security checks. For more information, go to Security site checker. It evaluates configuration parameters and identifies common issues. The classification into Standard, Enhanced, and Advanced levels follows outlined criteria, subject to potential changes during the feature preview.

  • Standard: If less than a third (33%) of the security checks for a website pass, it’s rated as Standard.
  • Enhanced: If more than a third (33%) but less than two-thirds (66%) of the security checks pass, it’s rated as Enhanced.
  • Advanced: If more than two-thirds (66%) of the security checks pass, it’s rated as Advanced.
  • No results: This means the security checker couldn’t run, possibly due to IP restrictions or the site being stopped. To fix this, run the checker from the Power Platform Admin Center. It won’t work if there are IP address restrictions.
