Blob Auditing and Threat Detection in Azure SQL Database
Date Updated: Wednesday, May 31, 2017
Threat Detection will detect anomalous activities indicating unusual—and potentially harmful—attempts to access or exploit databases. Threat Detection will leverage machine learning to provide an additional layer of security built into the SQL Database service. This will enable SQL Database customers to protect their databases within minutes without needing to be an expert in database security. It'll work around the clock to profile and alert you to anomalous activities on your databases including potential vulnerabilities and SQL injection attacks, as well as anomalous database access patterns.
Blob Auditing will track database events and write audited events to an audit log in your Azure Storage account. Auditing will help you maintain regulatory compliance, understand database activity, and gain insight into issues that could indicate business concerns or suspected security violations.
