Microsoft Mechanics Podcast

Aug 24, 2021

Watch how Microsoft's cloud-based SIM, Azure Sentinel, along with our XDR technologies, including Microsoft 365 Defender, provide an automated approach to threat detection and response. Rob Lefferts, Microsoft Security CVP, joins Jeremy Chapman to show you the latest integrative defenses and tools to respond quickly in the context of a real attack.

The threat landscape has reached a new level of urgency, whether it's human operated ransomware, or sophisticated command and control attacks, and the techniques being used are getting harder to detect — like supply chain attacks that embed malware in the apps and IoT devices that you trust. Stop these types of attacks with the right measures and preparation.

Put the right defense layers in place with the Zero Trust security model.

Increase your organization's ability to detect and respond before an attack does any damage.

If the damage has already started, contain the blast radius and quickly reverse any damage that has already been done.

Our integrated SIM with Azure Sentinel and Microsoft 365 Defender and Azure Defender for XDR apply Microsoft's unique volume and diversity of threat intelligence for early warning and response to give you visibility and depth of insight across your organization.
