Azure Defender can prevent abnormal access to data in a CTERA Portal storage node by using behavioral analytics. This can help prevent cases such as someone trying to delete the storage, access to the content from a TOR Network or suspicious IPs, etc. 

Note: Azure Defender does not analyze the content of the data.

Thus, using Azure Defender protects altering data whose content is protected by CTERA Portal compression and encryption.

You can setup Azure Defender to provide security alerts and advanced threat protection for your  CTERA Portal storage node. This procedure describes how to set Azure Defender for every Azure storage account. By accessing an individual storage account, you can set Azure Defender just for that account.

Step-by-step guide

To integrate with Azure Defender:

  1. Log in to your Azure portal and access the Security Center service.
  2. Click Azure subscriptions and for the required plan, select Edit plan.
    The list of resources covered by the plan are listed.
  3. Scroll down to the list of resources and make sure that the Storage resource is set to On.

After setting Azure Defender as part of the subscription to apply to every storage account, you can check it as follows:

  1. In your Azure portal access the Storage accounts service.
  2. Click the storage account and under Security + networking click Security.
  3. Under Recommendations click View additional recommendations in Security Center.

 A check mark is next to Enable Azure Defender.
