The Operational and Commercial Benefits of Microsoft Sentinel


Why Microsoft Sentinel?

SIEM is the foundation of your security strategy. You can’t protect against what you can’t see, SIEM provides you with the eyes you need to detect threats and reduce your exposure to risk.

However, traditional, on-premises SIEM platforms are proving to be more of a hindrance than a help. Large management overheads, limited coverage, limited potential and the inability to review the volume of alerts that are generated are all serious problems for security teams. With increasingly complex, hybrid infrastructure now the ‘norm’ and generating even more alerts, these challenges need addressing.

Hosted in the cloud, Microsoft Sentinel provides intelligent tools to monitor and action alert log data from across your entire IT estate – including on-premise data centres. Log ingestion is complemented by machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) to increase detection accuracy and utilising the security orchestration automation and response (SOAR) integration to help automate your response.
