Security Center Pricing
Azure Security Center allows you to prevent, detect and respond to threats with increased visibility and control over the security of your Azure resources
Azure Security Center is offered in two tiers: Free and Standard. The Standard tier is offered for free for the first 60 days. Should you choose to continue to use the service after 60 days, we will automatically start to charge for the service.
The Security Center uses Azure storage to save security data generated from your protected nodes. Costs associated with this storage are not included in the price of the service and will be charged for separately at the usual Azure storage rates. Storage charges apply even during the trial.

Details on how nodes are counted
- A node is any Azure resource that is monitored by the service. Currently, only virtual machines are counted (each Azure VM counts as one node), but as additional security monitoring capabilities are enabled for other types of services, like Azure Cloud Services or SQL databases, we may begin counting these resources as well.
- Nodes are counted and prorated daily.
