ASC for IoT is presented in the Azure portal as being part of the IoT Hub. There’s a thirty days trial, I have not calculated the costs yet but you can try it out for yourself here.
There is a free tier but the standard tier is much more interesting. We will see that eg. the security event collection is very powerful:
In this blog, we check out How we can combine Azure Security Center for IoT with IoT Edge. This seems surprisingly easy.
