Securing Azure VM’s External Access with Azure MFA – Whitepaper

Hello All,

Today we are happy to publish our new Whitepaper which discussing one of the most secure way to access your Azure Virtual machines externally (Anytime from Everywhere).

We have heard from our customers loud and clear, and based on the feedback, security is still at the forefront of their concerns when deploying solutions. We have summarized below the leading causes for concern:

  1. Customer complains about VM’s access is not secure especially if they need to assign public IP’s to the VM’s to allow access at anytime from anywhere. In addition, assigning public IPs per VM is an increased cost incurred by the customer.
  2. Implementing site to site VPN requires effort and funding as well as constant monitoring of the connection.
  3. Open RDP protocol externally is not something that our customers are fond of, if no VPN solution then RDP should be opened.
  4. If the Admin credentials are compromised the entirety of environment will be under the attacker’s control.


Me and Fadi Hawari from Networking team worked on this whitepaper to propose a solution to address above pains, Download the white paper Now.


All feedbacks are welcomed.
