Azure Security Center 

Azure Security Center gives you enhanced visibility and increased control over your Azure resources by helping you to prevent, detect, and respond to threats. With integrated security monitoring, policy management and implementation across your subscriptions resources. ASC will help you close the gaps that could be otherwise hard to find and protect your cloud-based environment with ease.
