Introduction and Security Recommendations of Azure Enterprise-scale Architecture

In the past, Microsoft published many documentations and white papers for the adoption of Azure in enterprise environments. One of the key source is the Cloud Adoption Framework (CAF).

In the session, I like to give an overview of the „Enterprise-Scale“ reference architecture. This enables you to build landing zone(s) that represents the strategic design path and follows design principles of critical design for shared services (e.g. identity, network,..).

Furthermore, it includes learnings from previous engineering engagements and provide architecture design pattern from Microsoft.

Various reference implementations allows to deploy (modular) templates depending on customer needs such as kind of connectivity (cloud-only, Hub/Spoke, vWAN).

You will learn more about implementation of the "Enterprise-scale" architecture, and some of the included aspects, considerations or approaches.
A particular focus will be on security best practices:

- Overview and requirements of Azure Landing Zones
- Deployment of Enterprise-Scale reference implementation
- Policy-driven governance ("AzOps")
- Critical design areas and core principals of securing Azure environments with Azure AD
