    Azure Security Center monitors the following Azure resources:

    • Virtual machines (VMs) (including Cloud Services)
    • Virtual machine scale sets
    • Azure Virtual Networks
    • Containers
    • Azure SQL service
    • Azure Storage account
    • Azure Web Apps (in App Service Environment)
    • Partner solutions integrated with your Azure subscription such as a web application firewall on VMs and on App Service Environment
    • In addition, non-Azure (including on-premises) machines can also be monitored by Azure Security Center. Both Windows machines and Linux machines are supported.
