Security Center pricing
Azure Security Center provides unified security management and advanced threat protection for hybrid cloud workloads
US government entities are eligible to purchase Azure Government services from a licensing solution provider with no upfront financial commitment, or directly through a pay-as-you-go online subscription.
Important—The price in R$ is merely a reference; this is an international transaction and the final price is subject to exchange rates and the inclusion of IOF taxes. An eNF will not be issued.
Azure Germany is available to customers and partners who have already purchased this, doing business in the European Union (EU), the European Free Trade Association (EFTA), and in the United Kingdom (UK). It provides data residency in Germany with additional levels of control and data protection. You can also sign up for a free Azure trial.
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.

A transaction is an API call with a request payload size of up to 1,000 data points included in the time series. Each increment of 1,000 data points will be counted as an additional transaction. For example, an API call with request payload size of 2,050 data points is 3 transactions. The maximum request payload size is 8,640 data points. Each data point in the time series is a time stamp/numerical value pair.
