Azure Bastion is now generally available



At Ignite 2019, Microsoft announced the general availability of Azure Bastion, a fully managed platform as a service (PaaS) service that provides more secure and seamless RDP and SSH access to virtual machines directly through the Azure portal. Azure Bastion is provisioned directly in a customer’s virtual network (VNet) and supports all VMs in their virtual network (VNet) using SSL without any exposure through public IP addresses. [Previously available in preview](, Azure Bastion is now generally available in six Azure regions – West US, East US, West Europe, South Central US, Australia East and Japan East. It’s easy to initiate a remote Azure Bastion session directly from Azure portal. Azure Bastion then brokers a more secure RDP/SSH session to the target virtual machines in the virtual network. Azure Bastion always connects to the target VM in the virtual network over its private IP. [Learn more]( * Azure Bastion * Services * [ Azure Bastion](
