Virus scan data before copying data to azure Blob storage?

Brass Contributor



Does Azure Blob storage perform a virus scan before allowing data to be transferred to Blob storage.

example: Source location data is infected and while its getting copied to blob storage then will infect the azure environment for the user.

for my point of view there isn’t any functionality like this per default available.
But take a look at Sophos Security for Azure.
TrendMicro also have a Solution.


@Admin O365 hi, this solution monitor but doesn’t prevent the action forms point of view.

Thanks for your reply.

@Hannes_LG  Did you ever get an answer to your question?


There is an open-source solution that moves infected blobs to a different container.
