I will show you demos for how to implement each layer of defense. This way, if one layer is breached, you aren’t left defenseless. We will start at the outer layer with network access. Next, we will cover the authentication and authorization using Azure RBAC. Finally, we will protect the innermost layer with Data At Rest and Data In Transit encryption. Once these protections are in place, we’ll see how to monitor Azure SQL security ecosystem for intrusions with Advanced threat protection.
Azure SQL performance capabilities, how to configure and maintain your Azure SQL for higher performance. We will explore various monitoring tools and pick few scenarios for deeper troubleshooting. In this demo centric session, we will tune our database and find an optimal ground to manage cost. We will generate Power BI powered database score card for trend analysis.
