Moving workloads to Microsoft’s Azure cloud is a popular choice for organizations. But like all data services, security is still required, and Zscaler is an approved Security As A Service (SecAAS) provider.
Connecting Zscaler and Azure can be handled via an encrypted IPsec connection. We’ve recently made this easier with the generally avaialble (GA) of our one-touch configuration to all customers. Leveraging Microsofts APIs we’ve been able to automate the setup of the IPsec connection between the Azure and Zscaler clouds. In this talk I’ll start by introducing you to concepts around:
- Azure Virtual Hub replaces the use of third party virtual gateways
- The differences between a Virtual Hub and a Secured Virtual Hub
- Azure Firewall Manager operation
- Prerequisits for Zscaler to connect to Azure via IPsec
From there I’ll demonstrate how this functionality can be configured, showing the end-to-end setup. You can learn more about Azure Virtual WAN here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-wan/virtual-wan-about
