Azure Defender for Storage – Improved Threat Detections

Though security is always an important issue, the risk of data breaches and cyber-attacks have risen with everyone working from home and accessing corporate data across less secure networks.

Though data storage is only one of the resources targeted by attackers, it is a significant one as it usually holds sensitive personal information and critical business data.

Azure Defender for Storage can detect potential threats on your blob containers, file shares and data lakes and in March, received some new capabilities:

  1. Detecting upload of malware and malicious content
  2. Detecting phishing campaigns hosted on Azure Storage
  3. Detecting access from suspicious IP addresses
