Reviews for this release

The beauty of the guidance is that it is chunked in very concrete actionable info nuggets. It's especially valuable for those who want to hit the ground running and quickly start addressing critical security aspects of the Azure deployed apps. People who probably benefit the most are Solution Architects, Consultants, Dev Leads, and Developers.
