We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I'm not privy to that information, but I know it's probably close to a million dollars a year."
"We are using the free version of the Azure Security Center."
"This is a worldwide service and depending on the country, there will be different prices."
"Security Center charges $15 per resource for any workload that you onboard into it. They charge per VM or per data-base server or per application. It's not like Microsoft 365 licensing, where there are levels like E3 and E5. Security Center is pretty straightforward."
"There is a helpful cost-reducing option that allows you to integrate production subscriptions with non-production subscriptions."
"Its pricing is a little bit high in terms of Azure Security Center, but the good thing is that we don't need to maintain and deploy it. So, while the pricing is high, it is native to Azure which is why we prefer using this tool."
"I am not involved in this area. However, I believe its price is okay because even small customers are using Azure Security Center. I don't think it is very expensive."
"The cost of the license is based on the subscriptions that you have."
