How we can enable Encryption in an Azure Virtual Machine? 

 

In this article we are going to learn that how we can encrypt an Azure Virtual Machine .

Azure Disk Encryption helps protect and safeguard your data to meet your organizational security and compliance commitments. It uses the Bitlocker feature of Windows to provide volume encryption for the OS and data disks of Azure virtual machines (VMs), and is integrated with Azure Key Vault to help you control and manage the disk encryption keys and secrets.

 Create an Azure Key Vault

Open Azure portal.
