In this session, you will not only discover how Bastion natively integrates with the Azure Portal but also how you can harden it with JIT and NSG’s to enhance your overall VM access security. So join us in this session to learn some best practicesand tips you should keep in mind when working with this ‘jump-box-as-a-service’.
