Is MCAS considered the replacement for Azure Identity protection? Identity protection looks at risky users and risky sign-in's, and then can take action based on the configured policy. Im trying to understand how MCAS fits in when using Identity protection ?

They compliment each other. You still need Azure AD Premium P2 to do risk based conditional access, so taking automated action on risky sign-ins and users is part of Identity Protection and can’t be done with just MCAS.
Thank you!
