Install the agent on a Microsoft Azure VM

Deep Security Agents can be installed on machine instances running in the Microsoft Azure cloud through the VM Extension option on the Azure portal and using the instructions provided in Manually install the Deep Security Agent.

Alternatively, Deep Security Agent deployment scripts can be created with the Deep Security deployment script generator to install Deep Security Agents in a Microsoft Azure environment. (See Use deployment scripts to add and protect computers.)

During Azure VM creation, make sure that the "INSTALL THE VM AGENT" option is enabled on the "Virtual machine configuration screen" in the Azure portal interface.
