    Hi @Shaik Shahul ,

    The side panel for Microsoft Defender for Cloud gives you insights about your Secure Score, Advisor Recommendations, configuration for JIT access, regulatory compliance, and environment settings. We have a detailed walk-through video on Youtube that goes through most of the sections and settings:

    We also have a guide here that describes these sections.

    The Overview section provides a view of your security across all of your Azure resources as well as any non-Azure resources you've connected. From there, you can check on issues that need to be resolved.

    The Getting started page allows you to set enable Defender for Cloud on your subscription.

    The Recommendations page offers both general best practices and recommendations, and guidelines based on the security policies you enabled.

    The Security Alerts page shows potential vulnerabilities and allows you to take action as needed to investigate further or remediate the attack.

    I'm not sure which "usage" stats you are referring to with Microsoft Defender for Cloud, so I wonder if you might instead be thinking of the Defender for Cloud Apps usage page, which shows which users in your organization are using your applications and highlights spikes and trends. You can also, however, analyze resource usage using Microsoft Defender for Cloud.

    If you have more specific questions about individual features, let me know and I'll be happy to continue the discussion.
