Managed Detection and Response for the Microsoft Cloud

microsoft cloud

Datashield has been servicing customers on Microsoft Azure Sentinel since its release. We have gained in-depth knowledge and expertise around the forensic analysis of the platform.

Microsoft Azure Sentinel, along with Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection or Defender ATP, brings a highly scalable cloud-native solution to the marketplace.
Azure Sentinel can orchestrate, analyze, and respond to large datasets. Its ability to use machine learning modules, integrate threat intelligence, and rapid playbook development allows for a seamless threat detection solution.

Why did Microsoft need to develop a SIEM when there are already so many out there?

For one, if you have an extensive cloud footprint, many solutions require your data to leave your cloud environment. The benefit of Sentinel is the seamless integration of a plethora of security services right into your Azure instance.

Microsoft went a step further, though, as you can manage your AWS and on-prem instances as well.

Microsoft has spent a significant amount of time and money investing in cyber security in the past few years. The Microsoft Threat Intelligence Center has found many new attacks, shut down hacking groups and sites, and has shared tons of information. Microsoft has also become a leader in many publications for EDR & SIEM.

How does Datashield leverage Azure Sentinel?

Datashield managed detection and response has integrated with Sentinel through our SHIELDVision platform. This allows us to orchestrate automated operations and takes threat Intel from various sources, including OSINT, product partners, and proprietary gathered sources, into our platform. We then use that data to generate threat hunting in customers’ environments automatically.

Sentinel has many use cases out of the box, but Datashield has tuned and enhanced many of these. Additionally, we have developed our own library of playbooks and threat hunting plans.

Many organizations are moving to a digital transformation strategy, and most include some level of cloud components. Datashield helps implement, manage, and improve Sentinel. Our analysts investigate and reduce alert fatigue for your teams, and that allows them to focus on more critical functions for your organization. 

Microsoft Sentinel allows for a cloud-native solution with integration into many of Microsoft’s other security toolsets such as Defender and Office 365 ATP. Utilizing AI and machine learning along with SHIELDVision allows security operations teams a more robust view into the day-to-day.

If you’re looking into Azure Sentinel, let us offset your team and manage it for you.
