AZURE CLOUD PLATFORM -Firewall (Article 15)

Hi! Guys welcome to the continuous article set of my Azure cloud platform based on the shared cloud architecture. This is my 15th article. You can visit my previous articles from the below links:

Azure Firewall is a managed, cloud-based network security service that protects your Azure Virtual Network resources. It’s a fully stateful firewall as a service with built-in high availability and unrestricted cloud scalability. You can centrally create, enforce, and log application and network connectivity policies across subscriptions and virtual networks. Azure Firewall uses a static public IP address for your virtual network resources allowing outside firewalls to identify traffic originating from your virtual network. The service is fully integrated with Azure Monitor for logging and analytics.

Azure Firewall includes the following features:

You can configure NAT rules, network rules, and applications rules on Azure Firewall. Rule collections are processed according to the rule type in priority order, lower numbers to higher numbers from 100 to 65,000. A rule collection name can have only letters, numbers, underscores, periods, or hyphens. It must begin with a letter or number, and end with a letter, number or underscore. The maximum name length is 80 characters.

Azure Firewall Manager is a security management service that provides central security policy and route management for cloud-based security perimeters. Firewall Manager can provide security management for two network architecture types:

  • Secured virtual hub
  • Hub virtual network

This is the end of Article 15 and hope you get a brief idea about Azure Firewall.
