We have Enabled Microsoft Defender for Cloud in our Azure Account.

In our account, we can able to enable Vulnerability Assessment Scanner in Virtual machines.

But We are unable to find the VM Scale sets in the Enable Vulnerability Assessment solution security recommendations.

Is there any alternative way to Enable Vulnerability Assessment in VMSS?

    Hi,
    You can use policies: Azure Security agent should be installed on your Linux virtual machine scale sets and Azure Security agent should be installed on your Windows virtual machine scale sets to track where the scanner (agent) is not installed or policies Configure supported Linux virtual machine scale sets to automatically install the Azure Security agent and Configure supported Windows machines to automatically install the Azure Security agent to automatically install it on new scale sets or remediate it via Azure Policy.
