Governance keeps you compliant and out of trouble.

  • Azure Policy ensures that policies applied to resources are compliant.
  • A policy is a set of rules to ensure compliant resources.
  • Role-based access control (RBAC) ensures user compliance through assigning a role to a user. A role is a combination of security principal, role definition and scope.
  • Locks make sure that subscriptions, resource groups or resources are either not modified or not deleted.
  • Blueprints are templates for creating standard Azure environments.
  • The Azure Advisor for Security Assistance is part of the Security Center.
