Establishing a presence in the cloud should be done with security at the forefront. In this course, Securing Microsoft Azure Networks, you will learn what services and features you can leverage to create a plan to better improve your security profile in Azure. First, you will configure access control by securing what traffic can access your assets as well as who. Next, you will create and configure services that will better protect your network from malicious actors. Finally, you will maintain a secured connection from your on-premises environment to Azure in order to manage your Azure assets in a more secure fashion. When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge to apply security controls to your Azure network resources while creating a secure posture in the cloud.
Course Overview (Music playing) Hi everyone, my name is Michael Teske, and welcome to my course Securing Microsoft Azure Networks. I'm an author evangelist at Pluralsight with more than 20 years working in IT operations with 17 of those years as an IT operations in automation instructor. To say security is on the radar in today's cloud-based world is an understatement at the very least. I dare you to find any company that doesn't have some cloud platform exposure. Anyone looking to move to a cloud security role has started at the right time, and you've come to the right place. Getting a fundamental understanding of what Azure offers to ensure a secure experience on the platform is where it all starts. In this course, we will identify and locate some critical features and services and then see how they work in Azure, starting with network security groups and finishing with creating a VPN between you and Microsoft Azure with additional services and features sprinkled in between, of course. Some of the major topics that we will cover include planning to secure your Azure network. Also, control who has access to your resources. We'll look at Azure application gateways, Azure DDoS protection, and then finally, Azure virtual network gateways. By the end of this course, you'll have a fundamental understanding of how you can better secure your Azure networks using the features and services they provide. Now, before beginning this course, you should have a general familiarity with the public cloud infrastructure as a service, platform as a service, software as a service, as well as an intermediate understanding of managing on-premises workloads. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn my Securing Microsoft Azure Networks course at Pluralsight.
