Today I’m excited to announce the availability of innovative and industry leading Azure services that will help the attendees of NAB realize their future vision to deliver for their audiences - Azure Front Door Service (AFD), ExpressRoute Direct and Global Reach, as well as some cool new additions to both AFD and our Content Delivery Network (CDN).
We have heard from many of you that security is a top priority when moving web applications onto the cloud. Today, we are very excited to announce our public preview of the Web Application Firewall (WAF) for the Azure Front Door service. By combining the global application and content delivery network with natively integrated WAF engine, you now have a highly available platform through which you may deliver your web applications to the world, secure and fast!
Azure Virtual Network (VNet) is the fundamental building block for any customer network. VNet lets you create your own private space in Azure, or as I call it your own network bubble.
Today we are excited to launch two new key capabilities to Azure Firewall.
A network virtual appliance (NVA) is a virtual appliance primarily focused on network functions virtualization. A typical network virtual appliance involves various layers of four to seven functions like firewall, WAN optimizer, application delivery controllers, routers, load balancers, IDS/IPS, proxies, SD-WAN edge, and more.
Over the past few years, SONiC (Software for Open Networking in the Cloud), our open switch OS, has been in the fast lane. A diverse group of community partners have actively engaged with us to contribute and support the evolvement of the software.
We are excited to announce the general availability of the private endpoint in HDInsight clusters deployed in a virtual network.
Azure distributed denial of service (DDoS) Protection provides countermeasures against the most sophisticated DDoS threats. New features announced today provide enterprise-grade visibility to customers when their resources are under attack.
Azure Application Gateway provides an access log for customers that records traffic patterns and useful information, such as caller’s IP, requested URL, return code, and more.
Every day we see you, our customers, pushing the boundaries of availability, performance and scalability. We hear you asking not just for the ability to scale two times, five times, but 10 times and 100 times instantly, without sacrificing performance or security.
