Identity recommendations now included in Azure Security Center free tier
Published date: 20 April, 2020
Security recommendations for identity and access on the Azure Security Center free tier are now generally available. This is part of the effort to make the cloud security posture management (CSPM) features completely free. Until now, these recommendations were only available on the standard pricing tier.
Examples of identity and access recommendations include:
- “Multifactor authentication should be enabled on accounts with owner permissions on your subscription”.
- “A maximum of three owners should be designated for your subscription”.
- “Deprecated accounts should be removed from your subscription”.
If you have subscriptions on the free pricing tier, their secure scores will be affected by this change because they were never assessed for their identity and access security.
