What security best practices must I comply with to publish my app to the Azure Marketplace?
Your solution must be packaged in accordance with Azure Marketplace security recommendations. It must also pass a scan for malware that we perform using a combination of proprietary and commercial vulnerability scanning tools. Security best practices covered in our recommendations include:
- No default account or password is used to access the app.
- The app has no back-door access (method for bypassing normal authentication).
- The app has the latest security patches. Publishers are expected to maintain up-to-date images. Learn more by reviewing our Publisher Agreement and Participation Policies.
