💸Introducing the new Microsoft Sentinel simplified pricing💸
We are excited to announce the new simplified pricing tiers for Microsoft Sentinel. Previously, there were separate prices for Log Analytics and Microsoft Sentinel. Now there is a single combined price for both components which simplifies budgeting, billing, and cost management.
🔹Simplified pricing is rolling out for all regions throughout July.
🔹All new Microsoft Sentinel workspaces will automatically be on simplified pricing.
🔹All your existing Microsoft Sentinel workspaces will remain unchanged until you decide to move to the simplified price within the portal.
🔹You can see the current pricing tier for Log Analytics and Microsoft Sentinel in the portal with the option to switch to the new simplified price.
💸We are extending the Microsoft Defender for Server P2 (DfS P2) benefit to the new combined pricing which previously applied to the Log Analytics price, effectively increasing the benefit. Today, DfS P2 customers receive 500MB per VM per day free data benefit for specific security data tables in Log Analytics. With the new simplified pricing the benefit applies to the entire Microsoft Sentinel bill.
💸Additionally, we will continue to offer the Microsoft Sentinel benefit for Microsoft 365 E5, A5, F5, and G5 customers when they switch to simplified pricing.
❓Will the total effective cost of Microsoft Sentinel change with the simplified pricing tiers?
No. The cost of each simplified tier is simply the sum of the Azure Monitor Log Analytics and classic Microsoft Sentinel tiers in that region.
❓How does the simplified pricing tiers impact Microsoft Sentinel pricing for additional capabilities?
All additional capabilities such as Retention, Archive, Search, Microsoft Sentinel solution for SAP applications, Logic Apps, etc. will have no impact and continue as-is.
❓Can I roll back to the classic Microsoft Sentinel pricing tiers after switching to the new simplified pricing tiers through the portal?
No. This option may be available through ARM calls or with customer support’s assistance.
❓When moving to simplified pricing, what would happen in the scenario where I currently have mismatched Log Analytics and Microsoft Sentinel tiers (e.g. 500GB commitment tier in Log Analytics and 400GB commitment tier in Microsoft Sentinel)?
If you choose to switch the workspace to simplified pricing, you will need to choose between the 400GB and 500GB simplified tiers depending on your workspace's usage and estimated costs.
