Network Security Group

No Network Watcher

Risk Level: Low

Description: 

This plugin guarantees Network Watcher is set up correctly. Network Watcher aids with the discovery, diagnosis, and analysis of Azure networks. By enabling Network Watcher in every location, you can ensure that no resources are being used in places where they aren't supposed to be.

PingSafe strongly recommends enabling the Network Watcher service in all locations.

About the Service :

In an Azure virtual network, a network security group may be used to restrict network traffic to and from Azure resources. A network security group is a collection of security rules that allow or disallow incoming and outgoing network traffic to and from various Azure services. Source and destination, port, and protocol can all be specified for each rule.

Impact : 

By enabling Network Watcher in every location, you can ensure that no resources are being used in places where they aren't supposed to be.
