ACR built-in audit policies for Azure Policy is now in preview
Updated: March 13, 2020
We are pleased to announce the public preview of Azure Container Registry support for creation of built-in audit policies for Azure Policy. Once the built-in audit policy is available for the security control, the assessment results can be surfaced through Azure Policy’s Compliance feature.
The following 3 built in policies are planned:
• Network: Provide an audit policy that verifies if Private Link is being used
• Network: Provide an audit policy that checks if the firewall is enabled/ IP-based restrictions are applied
• Data transfer: Provide an audit policy to verify if customer-managed key is used
Private Endpoints provide secure connectivity to Azure Storage from a Azure virtual network (VNet). On-premises networks can also securely connect to a storage account using a private endpoint when that network is to a VNet using Express Route or VPN. Private Endpoints for Azure Storage are now generally available in all Azure public regions.
