Free ebook: “Microsoft Azure Defense In Depth”

I promised myself regardless of the result between Vietnam and Uzbekistan in the final match of AFC U23 Championship 2018, I would publish my 350-page book I wrote and sold on Amazon market. The eBook has been sold over 60 copies since the release date. For those who don’t know the book, here is the introduction.

The book will cover common security design consideration and guidance on how to apply defense in depth strategy to your system hosted on Microsoft Azure IaaS. You will also learn number of different security practices along with Microsoft Azure built-in features to prevent common attacks (e.g. brute-force attack, DDoS, surface attack).

U23 Vietnam team is still the champion in our heart by the non-stop commendable endeavor. There is no word expressing my feeling and proud given to the team no matter what the team achieves. Runner-up award is marked historically, and completely well deserved. The team was playing like real soldiers in severe weather conditions. Congrats U23 Vietnam!

The book can be downloaded publicly here:

I was planning to write a new book in 2018 covering more practical experiences in security for both Azure IaaS and PaaS from development to architecting. Stay tuned!
