Configure Ransomware Protection for Disk Libraries on a Linux MediaAgent

You can configure ransomware protection for local and mounted disk libraries on a Linux MediaAgent and on a node in a HyperScale storage pool. After you configure ransomware protection, only certain white-listed Commvault processes can modify the backup data that is present on the MediaAgent. This protection greatly reduces the risk of a ransomware attack on the backup data.
