About VM Monitoring on Azure

Learn about the VM Monitoring options that are available to help you monitor assets in your Azure deployment.
As you deploy or terminate virtual machines in the Azure public cloud, you can use the Panorama plugin for Azure to consistently enforce security policy rules on these workloads.
The Panorama plugin for Azure is built for scale and allows you to monitor up to 100 Azure subscriptions on the Azure public cloud. With this plugin, you use Panorama as an anchor to poll your subscriptions for tags, and then distribute the metadata (IP address-to-tag mapping) to many firewalls in a device group. Because Panorama communicates with your Azure subscriptions to retrieve VM information, you’re able to streamline the number of API calls made to the cloud environment. Although you can define Security policy locally on the firewall, using Panorama and the plugin centralizes Security policy management, ensuring consistent policies for hybrid and cloud-native architectures.
See the Panorama plugin version information in the Compatibility Matrix.
