Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"There is a helpful cost-reducing option that allows you to integrate production subscriptions with non-production subscriptions.""We are using the free version of the Azure Security Center.""The price of the solution is good for the features we receive and there is an additional cost for Microsoft premier support. However, some of my potential customers have found it to be expensive and have gone on to choose another solution.""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.""This is a worldwide service and depending on the country, there will be different prices.""It has global licensing. It comes with multiple licenses since there are around 50,000 people (in our organization) who look at it.""I'm not privy to that information, but I know it's probably close to a million dollars a year.""This solution is more cost-effective than some competing products. My understanding is that it is based on the number of integrations that you have, so if you have fewer subscriptions then you pay less for the service."

Overview

Organizations are embracing multiple public cloud platforms, resulting in increased complexity of management which impacts security and risk. Additionally, the built-in security tools that come with various cloud platforms are unique to each, compounding the challenge of consistently managing risk across all clouds in a multi-cloud world. This challenge renders security operations time consuming and ineffective. As the attack surface expands, organizations need to protect from not only from risks of configuration and management of the application elements themselves, but also from risks originating via cloud application programming interfaces (APIs) and UIs.

FortiCWP offers security administrators and DevOps teams the ability to evaluate their cloud configuration security posture, detect potential threats originating from misconfiguration of cloud resources, analyze traffic across cloud resources (in and out of the cloud), and evaluate cloud configuration against best practices. It enables the ability to manage risk throughout multi-cloud infrastructures, provides regulatory compliance reporting, and integrates remediation into the cloud infrastructure lifecycle automation framework.

Microsoft Defender for Cloud protects your Azure and hybrid resources. Microsoft uses a wide variety of physical, infrastructure, and operational controls to help secure Azure—but there are additional actions you need to take to help safeguard your workloads. Turn on Azure Security Center to strengthen your cloud security posture. Within Azure Security Center, use Azure Defender to protect your hybrid cloud workloads. With Azure Security Center, you can:

- Assess and visualize the security state of your resources in Azure, on-premises, and in other clouds with Azure Secure Score

- Simplify enterprise compliance and view your compliance against regulatory requirements

- Protect all your hybrid cloud workloads with Azure Defender, which is integrated with Security Center

- Use AI and automation to cut through false alarms, quickly identify threats, and streamline threat investigation
