Troubleshoot connectivity issues in a virtual network
Thursday, August 30, 2018
The Virtual Network blade in the Azure portal has been enhanced to troubleshoot connectivity and performance issues or continually monitor your network endpoints from virtual machines (VMs) in a virtual network. You can:
• Check for connectivity between source (VM) and destination (VM, URI, FQDN, IP address).
• Identify configuration issues that are affecting reachability.
• Provide hop-by-hop paths from source to destination; hop-by-hop latency; minimum, maximum, and average latency between source and destination; and a topology (graphical) view from source to destination.
Securing your Azure workloads has become easier with the release of Azure Security Center (ASC) official PowerShell Module!
Many organizations are looking to automate more tasks, as manual work is prone to human error and creates a potential for duplicative work. The need for automation is especially prevalent when it comes to large scale deployments that involve dozens of subscriptions with hundreds and thousands of resources – all of which must be secured from the beginning.
To streamline the security aspects of the DevOps lifecycle, ASC has recently released its official PowerShell module. This enables organizations to programmatically automate onboarding and management of their Azure resources in ASC and adding the necessary security controls.
General availability: Immutable storage for Azure Blob storage
Tuesday, September 18, 2018
Financial services organizations regulated by SEC, CFTC, FINRA, IIROC, FCA, etc., are required to retain business-related communications in a Write-Once-Read-Many (WORM) or immutable state to ensure that they're non-erasable and non-modifiable for a specific retention interval. The immutable storage requirement is not limited to financial organizations. It also applies to industries such as healthcare, insurance, media, public safety, and legal services.
To address this requirement, immutable storage for Azure Blob storage is now generally available in all Azure public regions. Through configurable policies, users can keep Azure Blob storage data in an immutable state where blobs can be created and read, but not modified or deleted.
