Making the move to Microsoft Sentinel

23 April 2024

As decision-makers in Security Operations Centers (SOCs), you're intimately familiar with the dynamic landscape of cybersecurity threats. Transitioning to Microsoft Sentinel presents a strategic opportunity to fortify your organisation's defences against evolving threats.

Understanding the Significance of Detection and Response

In today's threat landscape, where cyberattacks are growing in frequency and sophistication, traditional security measures often fall short. Detection and Response services act as a cloud-native SIEM solution, offering advanced threat detection and response capabilities tailored to meet the demands of modern SOC environments. 

Leveraging the power of Microsoft's ecosystem, Sentinel provides unparalleled visibility into security events, enabling proactive threat hunting and rapid incident response. 

Microsoft Sentinel is 48 percent less expensive and 67 percent faster to deploy than legacy on-premises SIEMs.
