Public-facing applications are common targets for hackers and malicious users. In this course you will gain the ability to prevent these attacks by leveraging Microsoft Azure’s powerful security services. First, you will learn to eliminate sensitive service credentials from your app code by using Managed Identities (MSI). Next, you will discover how Network Security Groups (NSG) and Application Security Groups (ASG) are used to control inbound and outbound traffic for virtual networks and virtual machines. Finally, you will explore how to protect Azure app service deployments from common attacks such as SQL injection and XSS by using Web Application Firewalls (WAF) and App Service Environments (ASE). When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of Azure security services needed to protect your applications in Microsoft Azure.
