Azure – Azure Front Door is now GA and WAF for AFD in preview

Azure Front Door Service (AFD), the new Azure capability providing fast and secure entry points to your web applications hosted on Azure, which was in preview for about a year, is now generally available.


AFD includes SSL offloading, URL redirect and rewrite, HTTP/2, IPv6 or session affinity.

In addition of AFD going GA, you can also start evaluating Web Application Firewall (WAF) for AFD in preview.
