Nasuni Unveils New Features, Integration with Microsoft Sentinel to Protect File Data Against Security Threats


Nasuni has announced a new integration with Microsoft Sentinel. This release enables organizations to automatically detect security threats and initiate responses in enterprise environments.

Nasuni’s file data platform offers a cloud-native solution to help organizations manage and store their data. The unified platform combines primary file storage, backup, disaster recovery, and file-sharing capabilities. Some key capabilities of Nasuni include data protection, built-in security features, versioning and file-locking support, and more.

With Microsoft Sentinel integration, IT admins can now collect and monitor security and other risk events at each Nasuni edge device. All high-priority events (such as major changes to data or deleted files) coming from Edge devices can trigger security protocols within the Microsoft Sentinel tool.

“By integrating Microsoft Sentinel with Nasuni’s cloud-native ransomware protection, Nasuni events are automatically captured, consolidated, and sent to Microsoft Sentinel for analysis, providing SecOps teams with better protection for the vast amount of data in their company file shares,” said Eric Burkholder, Senior Program Manager for Microsoft Sentinel Growth and Ecosystem at Microsoft.

Microsoft Sentinel helps administrators to scan logs, send admin alerts, and disable flagged user accounts. Additionally, the integration with Nasuni provides interoperability with Sentinel data connectors, Microsoft Defender for Endpoint, and other Azure services.

Nasuni Ransomware Protection gets new targeted restore capabilities

Nasuni has also announced new targeted restore capabilities for its Ransomware Protection service. The feature is designed to reduce investigation time and speed up recovery from cyberattack attacks. The targeted restore feature enables IT admins to minimize the impact of ransomware attacks and precisely recover encrypted files detected in the security incident.

Additionally, targeted restore makes it easier to find and mount the last clean files and snapshots before a ransomware attack. It lets IT admins review completely documented attack details to comply with regulatory, reporting, and insurance requirements.

The targeted restore feature is now available for the Nasuni Ransomware Protection service, and organizations can purchase it as an annual subscription based on capability. Meanwhile, the Nasuni integration is currently available via the Sentinel content hub in the Azure Marketplace.
