Hello. My name is Gavin and welcome to my course on Creating a DMZ in Microsoft Azure.

IT Securing is critically important. Even more so in the software defined datacentre. Just because Azure is managed by Microsoft does not mean you are off-the-hook and not responsible for security. As soon as you click the NEW button in Azure YOU are responsible for the integrity and security of systems. If you plan to expose services to the internet in Azure then you need to think about perimeter security. DMZs are a critical part of securing any publicly exposed IT System.

This course explains everything you need to know about creating a DMZ in Azure. By the end of the course you will understand the core requirements for securing a network in Azure.

Some of the topics we will cover include:

Defence in depth – network security
Network Address spaces and how they relate to Azure network design
Network Security Groups and why they are essential for every network in Azure
How to create a DMZ using Network Security Groups
Scripting options for creating a DMZ
Some troubleshooting hints and tips

Thank you for listening. I hope you will enjoy this short Pluralsight course as we work through the creation of a DMZ in Azure.
