I know we can monitor from monitor section, and from security center, other than these options how we can improve the security of the azure web app. Please suggest.

    There are several ways to improve the security of an Azure web app beyond the built-in monitoring and security features in the Azure portal. Here are a few suggestions:

    1. Use Azure Active Directory (AAD) for authentication and authorization of users.
    2. Use Azure Key Vault to securely store and manage secrets such as connection strings, API keys, and passwords.
    3. Use Azure Web Application Firewall (WAF) to protect against common web vulnerabilities such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting, and others.
    4. Use Azure DDoS Protection to protect against distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.
    5. Use Azure Security Center to scan your web app for vulnerabilities and apply security recommendations.
    6. Use Azure Policy to define and enforce consistent security rules across all your Azure resources.
    7. Use Azure Security Center to monitor your web app's security and provide alerts when potential security issues are detected.
    8. Implement Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to encrypt data in transit between the client and your web app.
    9. Use Azure App Service Authentication/Authorization feature to restrict access to your web app to only authorized users.
    10. Regularly review and update your web app's dependencies and libraries to ensure they are up to date and free of vulnerabilities.
