Microsoft will soon launch Microsoft Threat Experts, a new Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) security service designed to help Microsoft 365 customers detect targeted attacks on a business. According to a blog article, the software company calls this new service a "Managed Threat Hunting Service", which, in addition to AI-based data analysis of threats, also provides the opportunity to obtain technical expertise from security experts. This new service is currently available as a limited preview for Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) customers and requires an Application for participation.
Shortly before, Microsoft introduced Azure Sentinel, another security tool. It is a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tool that provides automated, real-time analysis of security-related data to detect threats and attacks. Unlike other SIEM systems, Azure Sentinel is offered exclusively from the cloud and supports a range of open standards such as the Common Event Format and links to other security solutions such as Check Point F5, Fortinet, Palo Alto or Symantec.
