    @MS Techie Thanks for reaching out to Microsoft Q&A. I understand that you want to know options to detect ransomware attacks activity and how you can prevent them, is that right?

    Microsoft Defender for Storage is an Azure-native layer of security intelligence that detects unusual and potentially harmful attempts to access or exploit your storage accounts. It uses advanced threat detection capabilities and Microsoft Threat Intelligence data to provide contextual security alerts. Those alerts also include steps to mitigate the detected threats and prevent future attacks.

    Please refer to this document for details information regarding this and how to enable this for your storage account- [
