In today’s post, I’d like to discuss the recently announced Azure Firewall service that is now in Preview. Azure Firewall is a managed, cloud-based network security service that protects your Azure Virtual Network resources. It is a fully stateful PaaS firewall with built-in high availability and unrestricted cloud scalability.
It’s in the cloud and Azure ecosystem and it has some of that built-in capability. With Azure Firewall you can centrally create, enforce and log application and network connectivity policies across subscriptions and virtual networks, giving you a lot of flexibility.
It is also fully integrated with Azure Monitor for log analytics. That’s big because a lot of firewalls are not fully integrated with log analytics which means you can’t centralize these logs in OMS, for instance, which would give you a great platform in a single pane of glass for monitoring many of the technologies being used in Azure.
Some of the features within:
Another nice thing to note is when you set up an express route or a VPN from your on premises environment to Azure, you can use this as your single firewall for all those virtual networks and allow traffic in and out from there and monitor it all from that single place.
This is in Preview so there are a few hiccups, but if none of the service challenges effect you, I suggest you give it a try. It will only continue to come along and get better as with all the Azure services while in Preview. I think it’s going to be a great firewall service option in the future.
