It depend . For new Azure sql database and managed instances Transparent Data Encryption is activated by default https://docs.microsoft.com/fr-fr/azure/azure-sql/database/transparent-data-encryption-tde-overview?t... . For app services you should apply the security baseline https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app-service/security-baseline

Hi For App service you should  apply security controls baseline 

Azure security baseline for App Service - Azure App Service | Microsoft Docs

For Azure Sql it depend  New versions ( Azure SQL database and Manage Instance ) have Transparent data encryption enabled by default for old versions you have to do that . 

I strongly recommend to implement security best practices for your workloads  it's not Microsoft responsibility to protect your data in my opinion .
