Best practices

Private Endpoints should be used to access Storage Accounts

Description

Azure storage account contains all of your Azure Storage data objects, including blobs, file shares, queues, tables, and disks. It was detected that the storage account {AzureStorageAccount} has no private endpoint. Using private endpoints for an Azure Storage accounts allows clients and services to securely access data located over a network via an encrypted Private Link. To securely access data the private endpoint uses an IP address from the VNet for each service. Network traffic between disparate services securely traverses encrypted over the VNet. This VNet can also link addressing space, extending your network and accessing resources on it. Similarly, it can be a tunnel through public networks to connect remote infrastructures together. This creates further security through segmenting network traffic and preventing outside sources from accessing it.
  • Recommended Mitigation

    It is recommended to configure private endpoint for storage account. Securing traffic between services through encryption protects the data from easy interception and reading. There is no cost in deploying VNets between Azure resources. VNets configured without private endpoint may result in loss of critical network traffic.
