Session Title: Privacy In The Public Cloud – Azure SQL Private Endpoints
Speaker: Rainer Stropek

Abstract: Azure SQL Database has been designed so that it can run connected to the public internet. It has proper authentication and encryption built-in. However, administrators are humans and humans sometimes make mistakes. So it cannot harm to add another layer of security and limit access to cloud databases using network security mechanisms. Recently, Microsoft has been adding support for Azure Private Endpoints to more and more PaaS offerings including Azure SQL DB. In this session, long-time Azure MVP and RD Rainer Stropek will demonstrate how to use Private Endpoints to limit access to databases on a network level. He will show how you can connect your databases to Azure Virtual Networks and securely access them from applications running in the cloud and from on-premise systems using Azure VPN Gateways.
