How is MS Purview Compliance Manager and Defender for Cloud (regulatory compliance), which appear to do very similar if not identical functions, related? I know Compliance Manager uses MCCA/CAMP to evaluate environments, does Defender for Cloud use MCCA/CAMP as well to determine compliance? Just looking to understand the relationship, if any, between the two products.
Microsoft Purview Compliance Manager is part of Microsoft Office 365 whereas Defender for Cloud is a security solution within Microsoft's Azure Cloud. Defender for Cloud evaluates your cloud workload against Azure Security Benchmark to assess whether they are configured according to security best practices.
Compliance Manager is looking at compliance for M365 products and is available to organizations with Office 365 and M365 licenses. Defender for Cloud looks at compliance of your cloud workload and can be utilized with an Azure Subscription.
There is no relationship between MS Purview Compliance Manager and Defender for Cloud.
