Generally available: Support for Private Link in Azure IoT Central
Published date: 06 April, 2022
You can now create private endpoints to limit and secure device connectivity to your Azure IoT Central application with Private Link. This not only improves your security posture, but also simplifies your network architecture.
Devices running on connected or peered virtual networks, on-premises environments securely connected to Azure using ExpressRoute or VPN can now connect and enable bi-directional communication with Azure IoT Central via private endpoint.
Private endpoints use private IP addresses from a virtual network address space to connect your devices privately to your Azure IoT Central application. Network traffic between devices on the virtual network and the Azure IoT platform traverses the virtual network and a private link on the Microsoft backbone network, eliminating exposure on the public internet.
