Security Recommendations for Azure Marketplace Images RRS feed

  • Question

  • I consider publishing a VM image on the Azure marketplace based on Windows Server 2016, RHEL7.6, and SUSE15.

    When I modify a firewall configuration of the VM image, I confirmed the following policies(

    It is explained in the policy as follows.
    "Firewall rules are disabled, unless application functionally relies on them, such as a firewall appliance."

    On the other hand, firewall rules are enabled in Azure virtual machine deployed from SQL Server Windows image and SQL Server RHEL image.  

    Which one of those firewall configuration are recommended in the VM image on the Azure marketplace ?

  • Hi Ryu Matsui,

    Strongly recommend you follow the Azure Marketplace security guidelines for firewall configuration unless you have a functional need to enabled FW in your VM image.

    It's always best to adhere to the  Azure Marketplace recommendations since this is the platform on which your VM Image will be published :)
