Today’s Tip…

Azure Disk Encryption for virtual machines (VMs) helps you address organizational security and compliance requirements by encrypting your VM disks, including boot and data disks, with keys and policies you control in Azure Key Vault. Disk Encryption for VMs works across both Linux and Windows operating systems. It also uses Key Vault to help you safeguard, manage, and audit use of your disk encryption keys.

The Disk Encryption solution for Windows is based on proven Microsoft BitLocker Drive Encryption, and the Linux solution is based on dm-crypt.
