Microsoft Azure’s new capability introduces Security Risk

Microsoft has rolled out a new feature – “Diskpools,” that allows your applications and workloads to access a group of managed disks from a single endpoint. In doing so, it has introduced a security risk to all existing and new Azure Virtual Machine Disks by making them open to the internet even when those Diskpools are not in use.

ISmile Technologies recommends setting this configuration to “Disable Public and Private Access” if you are not using the feature.

ISmile Technologies’ AIOps-based Cloud Managed Services was able to catch this by using its built-in “Operational Intelligence” (It’s a combination of big data and machine learning for automating IT operations processes, including event correlation, anomaly detection, and causality determination).

It also can run containment plans for any possible security incidents; feel free to Contact Us for further help.
