Security controls for Azure Spring Apps Service


Azure Spring Apps is the new name for the Azure Spring Cloud service. Although the service has a new name, you'll see the old name in some places for a while as we work to update assets such as screenshots, videos, and diagrams.

Security controls are built into Azure Spring Apps Service.

A security control is a quality or feature of an Azure service that contributes to the service's ability to prevent, detect, and respond to security vulnerabilities. For each control, we use Yes or No to indicate whether it is currently in place for the service. We use N/A for a control that is not applicable to the service.

Data protection security controls

Server-side encryption at rest: Microsoft-managed keys Yes User uploaded source and artifacts, config server settings, app settings, and data in persistent storage are stored in Azure Storage, which automatically encrypts the content at rest.

Config server cache, runtime binaries built from uploaded source, and application logs during the application lifetime are saved to Azure managed disk, which automatically encrypts the content at rest.

Container images built from user uploaded source are saved in Azure Container Registry, which automatically encrypts the image content at rest.
