    If you want to protect your VPN gateway Public IP from DDOS attack, you can enable DDOS on your VNET. Other than that VPN gateway's Public IP is only open for specific ports like 443, 8081, etc for the service to work. You don't need to protect it other than enabling DDOS if you think there might be a DDOS attack.
