Advanced Threat Protection for Azure Storage is now available
Updated: April 03, 2019
Advanced Threat Protection for Azure Storage is now available. It provides an additional layer of security intelligence that detects unusual and potentially harmful attempts to access or exploit storage accounts.
This layer of protection allows you to address concerns about potential threats to your storage accounts, without needing to be an expert in security. Enabling it is quick and simple. Sign up in the Azure portal, or with standard Azure APIs (REST/PowerShell) for specific storage accounts or subscriptions. Once enabled, security alerts are triggered when suspicious activity occurs, and you can view them listed in Azure Security Center. Security alerts provide details of suspicious activity and recommends actions to take to investigate and mitigate the potential threat.
