Azure Private DNS Zone Monitoring Integration

Without the need for a customized DNS solution, Azure Private DNS delivers a dependable and secure DNS service for managing and resolving domain names in a virtual network. If you use private DNS zones, you can use your own unique domain names instead of the Azure-provided names currently accessible. 

By integrating Azure Private DNS with Site24x7, you can now monitor your Private DNS zone, configure thresholds, and receive alerts about critical issues.
