The new Windows Azure Network Security Whitepaper is now available.
To build and manage solutions in the cloud that comply with industry standards and regulations, IT administrators should understand the security mechanisms within Windows Azure—both those that are automatic and those that require configuration.
In particular, Windows Azure networking provides the infrastructure necessary to securely connect your virtual machines to one another, as well as bridge between the cloud and your on-premises datacenter.
This white paper seeks to uncover these inner-workings and give insights on how customers can take advantage of the platform’s native features to best protect their information assets. The figure below highlights some of what you will see in this white paper.
