Network segmentation in Azure using NSG (Network Security Groups)

Shawn Ismail

By default Azure does not provide any network traffic isolation between the VNETs. This creates a unique challenge for IT network and security professionals who have multiple subnets in Azure and would like to provide segmentation within the VNETS; an architecture that is common in on premise networks, for both physical and virtual infrastructures, for mitigating various security concerns. Azure NSGs (Network Security Groups) provides solutions for such virtual network segmentations without using any additional virtual appliances.

You will learn :

  1. Azure VM traffic isolation
  2. Azure VNET traffic isolation
  3. Azure network segmentation through traffic isolation
  4. Isolated network security zones

Features Covered:


This session relates to Azure IaaS and will address the Network Security Group (NSG) feature of Azure.

This session was delivered at the Collab365 Global Conference 2015 and was presented by Shawn Ismail .
