Data at rest and data at transit with Azure

Hi All, I am looking for any document the deals with various level of technical aspects and solution to protect data

at rest as well as data at transit with Azure. The focus areas is volume encryption, different tooling , memory

protection and all layers involved and the best practices. Thanks a lot.

Hi @Samy-7940,

Thanks for the question and using MS Q&A platform.

Data at Rest: Azure provides encryption for data at rest by default. For highly sensitive data, you have options to implement additional encryption at rest on all Azure resources where available. Azure manages your encryption keys by default, but Azure also provides options to manage your own keys (customer-managed keys) for certain Azure services to meet regulatory requirements.

Data at transit: By default, Azure provides encryption for data in transit between Azure data centers.

For more details, refer to Azure security baseline for Azure Data Factory.

This article provides an overview of how encryption is used in Microsoft Azure. It covers the major areas of encryption, including encryption at rest, encryption in flight, and key management with Azure Key Vault. Each section includes links to more detailed information.

This article describes best practices for data security and encryption.

Hope this will help. Please let us know if any further queries.

Hi @PRADEEPCHEEKATLA-MSFT, Thank you, I understand how data at rest and data in flight or motion works , and I
have already been through the documentation. I am more interested in third party tooling that could be leveraged for
this using Azure functions, and even APIs. And use case and steps to deal with it. Thanks a lot.

Hi @Samy-7940,

When you say "third party tooling that could be leveraged for this using Azure functions, and even APIs.", could you please share more details on the scenario?

Hi @PRADEEPCHEEKATLA-MSFT, Thank a lot for your response. I am sorry ,I read somewhere that we could use

third party tools and call this in to Azure through Azure functions and API, I am not able to locate exactly

where, but would if you could please let me know whether it is feasible at all.

Hi @Samy-7940,

I'm pretty much not clear on what do you mean by "third party tooling that could be leveraged for this using Azure functions, and even APIs."?

If you can provide more details on the scenario, I will be a place to answer to your question.
