  • Hi Ayman,


    Thank you for posting here!


    Microsoft has applied more than 20 years of experience with building enterprise software and running some of the world’s largest online services to create a robust set of security technologies and practices. These help ensure that the Azure infrastructure is resilient to attack, safeguards user access to the Azure environment, and helps keep your data secure through encrypted communications. We also use sophisticated threat management and mitigation practices, including regular penetration testing.


    Microsoft Azure’s load balancing will practically mitigate Denial of service attacks from internet and internal networks. The mitigation is done in conjunction with the developer defining an appropriate service definition VM instance count scale-out.


    On the internet, Azure VMs are only accessible through public virtual IP addresses (VIPs). VIP traffic is routed through Azure’s load-balancing infrastructure.    


    Azure security center helps you prevent, detect and respond to threads with increased visibility into and control over the security of Azure resources. It provides integrated security monitoring and policy management across your Azure subscriptions.
