Azure Virtual Machines are used to host applications, databases, machine learning workloads and much more. Given how widely used this service is, attackers see it as an ideal target to launch network attacks on virtual machines.
Some of the most common network security issues include malware attacks, SSH/RDP brute force attacks, and shell injection attacks against deployed apps.
In this course, we’ll be learning how to secure virtual machines against network attacks using Azure’s built-in security services.
We begin with the basics of virtual machines and an introduction to the Azure Virtual Network and its components. With the help of hands-on labs, you’ll also be learning the fundamentals of Network Security Groups and important rules for network security.
Finally, we’ll be going over the best practices for managing network security groups in Azure virtual machines.
