Azure Security Center is a unified infrastructure security management system that strengthens the security posture of your data centers, and provides advanced threat protection across your hybrid workloads in the cloud - whether they're in Azure or not - as well as on premises.   The goal of this document is to walk you through the paths that data traverses when Azure Security Center (ASC) is enabled in your subscription.  It covers agent collection, the central collection of log data, the creation of recommendations and alerts.
