Azure Security Center protects all Azure and certain on prem resources through its Free and Standard tiers.
When you upgrade to the Standard tier of Azure Security Center, we automatically enroll and start protecting all your resources unless you explicitly decide to opt-out. For any resource that is protected by Security Center, you will be charged per the pricing model below.
Currently, you can enable Azure Security Center at subscription level, through the Azure portal.
The Standard tier is free for the first 30 days. Any usage beyond 30 days will be automatically charged as per the pricing scheme below.

|Additional data uploaded over included daily data||$2.3 per GB|
|Additional retention beyond one month||$0.1/GB/month|
