Protect applications and services from external network attacks
Protect Azure resources against attacks from external networks, including distributed denial of service (DDoS) Attacks, application specific attacks, and unsolicited and potentially malicious internet traffic. Azure includes native capabilities for this:
- Use Azure Firewall to protect applications and services against potentially malicious traffic from the internet and other external locations.
- Use Web Application Firewall (WAF) capabilities in Azure Application Gateway, Azure Front Door, and Azure Content Delivery Network (CDN) to protect your applications, services, and APIs against application layer attacks.
- Protect your assets against DDoS attacks by enabling DDoS standard protection on your Azure virtual networks.
- Use Azure Security Center to detect misconfiguration risks related to the above.
