Microsoft announced that two of its security services, Azure Front Door and Azure Firewall have been updated with improvements. Azure Front Door now comes with two new products in the preview stage, Standard and premium, while Azure Firewall has a Premium option in the preview stage as well.

The company conducted a web presentation titled “Modernize Your Network Security Strategy” on Feb 18th, and it announced the product updates during the presentation.

Microsoft said in the presentation that while the internet has scalable support for applications, it does not have as many cybersecurity protections for the applications. This prompted the company to offer two new products namely Standard and Premium to its Front Door service.

Meanwhile, the company also said that the Firewall Premium product is for “highly sensitive and regulated environments.” The service supports TLS traffic inspection, offers intrusion detection and prevention solution, and has the provision to set filters for outbound traffic among many other functionalities.
