Monitor File Activity Anomalies for Virtual Machine Guests

Anomalous created, modified, deleted, and renamed file activity insights are now supported for virtual machine guests without requiring an in-guest agent. This provides in-built backup threat monitoring without the complexity of managing and installing agents. This feature utilizes the VM file indexing framework and Commvault's AI/ML engine. This insight may indicate threat activity may have impacted data that was backed up within the VM guest. When anomalies are detected they can be viewed on the Unusual File Activity dashboard, and clean pre-anomalous recoveries can be performed quickly.
