This learning path is designed to help you and your team prepare for the AZ-101 Microsoft Azure Integration and Security exam. Even if you don't plan to take the exam, these courses and hands-on labs will help you gain a solid understanding of how to manage a variety of Azure services.

The AZ-100 and AZ-101 exams replace the older 70-533 exam, which was retired on December 31, 2018. These two exams are part of Microsoft’s new role-based certification program. Candidates who pass both exams will earn the Microsoft Certified: Azure Administrator Associate certification.

The AZ-101 exam tests your knowledge of four subject areas and that’s how we’ve structured this learning path as well. We’ll start with evaluating and performing server migrations to Azure. This section covers the two most important services for migrations: Azure Migrate and Azure Site Recovery. Next, we’ll get into implementing and managing application services. This section mainly covers Azure App Service, but it also covers Logic Apps, Event Grid, and Service Bus. Then you’ll learn how to implement advanced virtual networking, especially Azure Load Balancer, Azure Application Gateway, and Azure Network Watcher. Finally, we’ll cover how to secure the identities of your users with multi-factor authentication (MFA), role-based access control (RBAC), and Privileged Identity Management (PIM).
