General availability: Azure Data Explorer supports Azure private endpoints
Published date: 07 April, 2022
Start using private endpoints for your Azure Data Explorer cluster on a virtual network (VNet) to securely access data over a Private Link. Network traffic between the clients on the VNet and the Azure Database Explorer cluster traverses over the VNet and a Private Link on the Microsoft backbone network, removing exposure from the public internet.
Azure Data Explorer private endpoints cluster enables you to:
• Configure the firewall to block all connections on the public endpoint for Azure Data Explorer.
• Increase security for the virtual network (VNet) by blocking exfiltration of data from the VNet.
• Securely connect to Azure Data Explorer clusters from on-premises networks that connect to the VNet using VPN or ExpressRoutes with private-peering.
Additionally, managed private endpoints allows you to access other highly protected Azure PaaS Services (for example, Azure Storage, SQL Database, Event Hubs) from your Azure Data Explorer cluster.
