Advanced Threat Protection for Azure Storage detects anomalous activities indicating unusual and potentially harmful attempts to access or exploit storage accounts.
Immutable storage for Azure Blob storage is now generally available in all Azure public regions. Through configurable policies, users can keep Azure Blob storage data in an immutable state where blobs can be created and read, but not modified or deleted.
Today we are excited to announce the public preview of static website hosting for Azure Storage! The feature set is available in all public cloud regions with support in government and sovereign clouds coming soon.
This set of new storage capabilities provides a cost-effective and scalable solution for hosting modern web applications. For more more details on the feature, see the Microsoft Azure Blog and the complete static websites documentation.
