Security Center displays the security score of your assets on the Overview page. The security score is calculated based on the security status of your assets. A higher score indicates fewer risks in your assets. If your security score is lower than 95, we recommend that you manage detected risks at the earliest opportunity. This topic describes how to improve the security score.
