In our previous blog post, I shared how you can use our Cloudmersive Storage Protect service for AWS S3. Now – as promised – I’m going to discuss how to use it to protect files uploaded to an Azure Blob.
Similar to the AWS S3 process, the Cloudmersive Storage Protection system integrates with your Azure Blob system to apply security policies for all files that are uploaded to a Blob container. Notifications will be sent when new files are created or updated, and the service will automatically respond with the necessary action.
Again, deployment for your Azure Blob storage will be very similar to the AWS S3 options. You can choose to use Cloudmersive Storage Protection in a Managed Instance or in a Private Cloud self-managed deployment. For both models, you will need to contact your Cloudmersive rep to provision the required instance or licenses.
Connection and Setup
The setup for your Azure Blob service is very simple and can be completed within 5 minutes.
The first step is to navigate to the Cloudmersive Account Portal to add a connection by filling in the required fields and specifying the outcome actions you want to occur when Clean or Infected files are identified.
Then you will configure the callback from Azure Storage to Cloudmersive Storage Protect by managing the connection you created in the previous step, adding your API key, and following the instructions provided to setup the Azure Blob Storage notifications to your Cloudmersive server.
