Stateful firewall as a service
Enable turnkey firewall capabilities in your virtual network to control and log access to apps and resources. Azure Firewall supports filtering for both inbound and outbound traffic, internal spoke-to-spoke, as well as hybrid connections through Azure VPN and ExpressRoute gateways.
High availability and cloud scale
Azure Firewall automatically scales with your usage during peak load or as your business grows, eliminating the need to predict and reserve capacity for peak usage.
Network- and application-level connectivity policies
Write policies that span fully qualified domain name filtering for outbound HTTP(s) traffic and network filtering controls, using IP address, port and protocol. Restrict access, prevent data exfiltration and create connectivity policies across multiple subscriptions and virtual networks.
Intelligent near real-time security
Threat intelligence-based filtering can be enabled for your firewall to alert and deny traffic from/to known malicious IP addresses and domains. The IP addresses and domains are sourced from the Microsoft Threat Intelligence feed. Intelligent Security Graph powers Microsoft threat intelligence and is used by multiple services, including Azure Security Center.
Communicate with Internet resources using SNAT and DNAT
Azure Firewall utilises a static public IP address for your virtual network resources using source network address translation (SNAT). This allows outside firewalls to identify traffic originating from your virtual network. Inbound traffic filtering for backend services in your Virtual Network (VNet) is supported by Destination Network Address Translation (DNAT).
Central logging and analytics
Use fully integrated, built-in monitoring and reporting in one place with Azure Monitor.
