Identity recommendations now included in Azure Security Center free tier

Published date: April 20, 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."

See the full list of identity and access recommendations.

If you have subscriptions on the free pricing tier, their secure scores will be impacted by this change because they were never assessed for their identity and access security.
