Hardening the NMM install: App Service

Applies to: Nerdio Manager for MSP (NMM)

Nerdio Manager consists of a number of PaaS services.  The entry point into the Nerdio Manager for AVD application is the App Service.  By default, the app service is protected with Azure AD authentication (including MFA and conditional access) and is accessible from any internet location.  It is possible to further protect the App Service by using Access Restrictions.

  • Locate Nerdio Manager App Service resource in Azure portal.  It will typically have a name in the following format: web-admin-portal-******
  • Go to Settings>Networking>Configure Access Restrictions (default configuration is to allow all access)
  • Click "+ Add rule" and specify the source IP address block to allow access.  This will automatically add a new Deny all rule to the list to prevent access from all other locations.

After a few minutes, only whitelisted IP ranges will be able to connect to the Nerdio Manager application.
