Azure App Service plan now allows clients located in your private network to securely access the app over Private Link. The Private Endpoint uses an IP address from your Azure VNet address space.

  • Enable hosting secure and internal Line of Business applications:
    With a private IP address for inbound traffic, you can build applications that only are accessible from inside the VNet or across connections to the VNet.

  • Expose your apps inside your VNet without data exfiltration issues:
    The private endpoint only enables you to reach your app.

  • Build secure multi-tier web applications:
    Private Endpoints only enables inbound connectivity to your app and does not enable outbound connectivity into a VNet, but this can be achieved with VNet integration, so by combining features such as VNet Integration, you can build complex applications that can call to secure backend API endpoints easily.
