During Microsoft Ignite in November 2021, Azure Security Center and Azure Defender are now called Microsoft Defender for Cloud. They’ve also renamed Azure Defender plans to Microsoft Defender plans. For example, Azure Defender for Storage is now Microsoft Defender for Storage.

In today’s cloud-first, mobile-first world, it’s clear that increasing trust and managing security is something many organizations and individuals deeply struggle with.
So going hybrid or to the cloud can resolve a lot of these issues and can address a lot of these concerns. Microsoft has vast resources and investments to manage global data centers and attract security talent and global security experts to provide compliance for those data and the infrastructure, and that compliance can then be inherited by the customers who use the Cloud.
However, it’s important to know that just because you are using the cloud doesn’t mean you don’t have a responsibility to secure your resources.
Many companies are still not ready to make the shift to the cloud and they are operating in hybrid mode, and this won’t change anytime soon.
Learn more about how to use the power of the cloud to protect hybrid and on-premises resources.
