CWP for Storage - Azure

CWP for Storage - Azure
leverages Symantec's latest built-in antimalware technologies to protect data of your Microsoft Azure storage accounts. The storage accounts have data stored in Azure storage assets such as
Blobs
or
File Shares
. The Azure Blob storage asset stores massive amount of unstructured data such as text or binary, while the Azure Files comprise of fully managed file shares that are accessible through the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol or Network File System (NFS) protocol.
CWP for Storage - Azure
protects these storage assets through frequent scanning to detect malware or data thefts.
CWP for Storage - Azure
currently supports only block blob as blob type, and storage accounts of General-purpose v2 (GPv2) standard and Blob types.
Azure
Blobs
are scanned using the Near real-time scan and Scheduled scan techniques, while the Azure
File Shares
are scanned using Near real-time scanning technique. If an object or file of a storage asset is found infected, then the object or the file is first quarantined before further action such as repair or delete is implemented. Events are generated for every action that is executed on the storage asset, which you can view in the Azure's Application Insight. You can use queries in the Application Insight Analytics to create and view charts as per your requirement. You can also download event logs from the storage accounts that are created at deployment.
