  1. Segregation of Duties / Restrict ability to DELETE Backup Vault

    In our main Azure instance we are backing up our on Prem VMs and our Cloud VMs. The concern is the Domain Admins have the ability to delete ALL our VMs both on Prem and in the Cloud and then proceed to delete the Azure Vault. We would like the ability to granularly control permission so that a user does not have the capability to Delete a Backup Vault. This doesn't appear to be a level control we can find within Azure without moving to a new Azure instance which adds other complications

  2. Security roles in Azure Backup

    The ability to restrict vault credentials to certain operations would be extremely useful from a security standpoint. Right now, Azure Backup can protect against accidental or non-malicious data loss, but its ability to protect against intended data destruction is limited. If the underlying server Azure Backup is running on is compromised, an attacker can simply delete all of the backups for that system. This makes Azure's utility as a replacement for traditional physical off-site backups (e.g. tape drives) much less useful.

    Being able to assign "roles" to vault credentials would be one way to solve this. For example, a role…

  3. Disable Azure Backup at "Public" Network Category of Network Profile.

    I want to enable Azure Backup at "Private" network category's network profile internet connection.
    and want to disable it at "Public" network category.

    Private = my organization's Wi-Fi, network.
    Public = mobile like at airport's Wi-Fi, like at Coffee shop through my smartphone.
