Network security

Azure networking provides the infrastructure necessary to securely connect VMs to one another and to connect on-site datacenters with Azure VMs. Azure blocks unauthorized traffic to and within Microsoft datacenters, using a variety of technologies such as firewalls, partitioned local area networks (LANs), and the physical separation of back-end servers from public-facing interfaces.

Azure Virtual Network extends your on-premises network to the cloud through site-to-site VPN, much the way you’d set up and connect to a remote branch office. You control the network topology, including configuration of DNS and IP address ranges, and manage it just like your on-site infrastructure. Azure Virtual Network enables you to assign multiple deployments within a subscription to a virtual network and allow those deployments to communicate with each other using private IP addresses. Each virtual network is isolated from other virtual networks.
