How to Enable Microsoft Defender For All The Azure Subscriptions On Cloud

Introduction

Microsoft Defender for Cloud can be enabled using Azure Policy on all Azure subscriptions the same under the management group (MG). This is more convenient than going to the portal and logging in to each one separately, and it works even if the subscriptions are owned by different persons.

 Note:

  •      Microsoft Defender for Cloud currently substitutes Azure Security Center and Azure Defender.
  •      Renamed the Azure Defender plans to Microsoft Defender plans.
  •      For instance, Azure Defender for Storage is now called Microsoft Defender for Storage.

 

To bring a management group and all of its subscriptions on board.

Go to the Azure portal and log in.

Type “Defender” into the search field and hit Enter.

 

After that, look at Microsoft Defender for Cloud.

Then, in the Management Option, open Environment settings.



Then choose the subscription or workspace that you want to protect the information.

You have the option of selecting "Enable all" or the Plan (ON or OFF) .


Then came the notification that the Defender plan has been successfully saved.
