What is Private Link for Azure Virtual Desktop?

Private Link for Azure Virtual Desktop allows users to establish secure connections to remote resources by using private endpoints. With Private Link, the traffic between your virtual network and the Azure Virtual Desktop service is routed through the highly secure Microsoft "backbone" network. This eliminates the need to expose your service to the public internet, thereby enhancing the overall security of your infrastructure. By keeping the traffic within this protected network, Private Link adds an extra layer of security for your Azure Virtual Desktop environment.
