First there is a new option called Azure Firewall :
Essentially it is a network security service that protects your Azure Virtual Network resources. It’s fully stateful and runs as a service with built-in high availability and cloud scalability.
You can limit outbound HTTP/S traffic to a specified list of fully qualified domain names.
All events are integrated with Azure Monitor, allowing you to archive logs to a storage account, stream events to your Event Hub, or send them to the Analytics repository.
