There is a third-party sensor for Azure: https://www.paessler.com/knowledgebase/en/topic/31943-how-can-i-monitor-the-microsoft-azure-cloud-with-prtg

We do not have immediate plans to support Azure due to very few requests coming in from customers, but we have it on the radar already.

As a result of ongoing changes in the Azure API, we decided to drop the Azure sensor and GenCert Tool.

Both are no longer available from http://prtgtoolsfamily.com
