If we are enabling Azure Defender for Virtual machine's is that case do we need to install antimalware on VM or by default it come with Azure defender , Will this work with both windows & Linux.

What are the option to query the policy non-complaint data in Azure. Do we need to connect activity log to log analytics workspace or it can be quired from Azure Resource graph . please suggest..

    You can check here what is required for Azure Defender for servers. If you go through Azure Portal Security Center -> Azure Defender -> Enable Azure Defender. There you will see option to enable Azure Defender on subscription and a way to install Log Analytics agent on machines. You can also check this documentation. Basically, you need Log Analytics agent and optionally install Qualys extension.

    Please "Accept the answer" if the information helped you. This will help us and others in the community as well.
