Explanation

Azure Defender is a cloud workload protection service that utilizes and agent-based deployment to analyze signals from Azure network fabric and the service control plane, to detect threats across all Azure resources. It can also analyze non-Azure resources, utilizing Azure Arc, including those on-premises and in both AWS and GCP (once they’ve been onboarded).

Possible Impact

Azure Defender for servers adds threat detection and advanced defenses for Windows and Linux machines.
