Azure – You can now have a cost estimation for Microsoft Defender for Cloud based on your resources

As you may already know Microsoft Defender for Cloud (formerly known as Azure Security Center and Azure Defender) provides advanced threat detection capabilities across your cloud workloads.

However this is always difficult to estimate upfront the cost associated with Defender for Cloud.

Well good news, you can now deploy a workbook developed by the Azure team.

To deploy the workbook, connect to the Microsoft Defender for Cloud GitHub https://github.com/Azure/Microsoft-Defender-for-Cloud/tree/main/Workbooks/Microsoft%20Defender%20for%20Cloud%20Price%20Estimation and click the Deploy button.

Not much to configure for this deployment, just the subscription and resource group where the workbook will be deployed as well as the usual region, workbook name…

Don’t change the workbook Id field as it will automatically generate a new ID.

Once deployed, search for Azure Workbook using the search bar at the top

Then locate the Microsoft Defender for Cloud Price Estimation workbook you just deployed (or any name you have defined during the deployment) to open it

You can now have an estimate for every workload which can be protected by Defender for Cloud (App Services, Containers, Databases, Key Vaults, Virtual Machines and Storage)
