Load balancer is a service which distributes inbound flows that arrive at the load balancer's front end to backend pool instances (Azure Virtual Machines or instances in a virtual machine scale set), according to the configured load balancing rules. The load balancer - {AzureLoadBalancer} do not have any load balancing rules to route by the inbound/outbound flows, thus the load balancer does not comply with security best practices
