Difference between Azure Front Door Service and Traffic Manager

Azure Front Door Service is Microsoft’s highly available and scalable web application acceleration platform and global HTTP(s) load balancer. Azure Front Door Service supports Dynamic Site Acceleration (DSA), SSL offloading and end to end SSL, Web Application Firewall, cookie-based session affinity, URL path-based routing, free certificates and multiple domain management. In this article, I will compare Azure Front Door to Azure Traffic Manager in terms of performance and functionality. Similarity: Azure Front Door service can be compared to Azure Traffic Manager in a way that this also provides global HTTP load balancing to distribute traffic across different Azure regions, cloud providers or even with your on-premises. Both AFD & Traffic Manager support: Multi-geo redundancy: If one region goes down, traffic routes to the closest region without any intervention. Closest region routing: Traffic is automatically routed to the closest region. Differences: Azu

Security Recommendations for Azure SQL Database

In this article, we will cover the security recommendations that you should follow for establishing a secure baseline configuration for Microsoft Azure SQL Services on your Azure Subscription. Image Source: 1. Enable auditing on SQL Servers & SQL databases: The Azure platform allows you to create a SQL server as a service. Enabling auditing at the server level ensures that all existing and newly created databases on the SQL server instance are audited. Auditing tracks database events and writes them to an audit log in your Azure storage account. It also helps you to maintain regulatory compliance, understand database activity, and gain insight into discrepancies and anomalies that could indicate business concerns or suspected security violations. Steps: For Azure SQL Server: 1. Go to Azure SQL Server and click on Auditing . 2. Enable Azure SQL Auditing and select your Storage account. You can also select e

Secure your Sitecore environment using Azure Private Link

Overview of Private Link: A Private Endpoint is a special network interface (NIC) for your Azure Web App in a Subnet in your Virtual Network (VNet). The Private Endpoint is assigned an IP Address from the IP address range of your VNet. The connection between the Private Endpoint and the Web App uses a secure Private Link . Private Link enables you to host your apps on an address in your Azure Virtual Network (VNet) rather than on a shared public address. It provides secure connectivity between clients on your private network and your Web App. By moving the endpoint for your app into your VNet you can: 1. Isolate your apps from the internet: Configuring a Private Endpoint with your app, you can securely host line-of-business applications and other intranet applications. 2. Prevent data exfiltration: Since the Private Endpoint only goes to one app, you don’t need to worry about data exfiltration situations. Referemce:
