How to Apply Elite Intelligence to Microsoft Azure Sentinel

Posted: 16th December 2020

As organizations rapidly shift their data, applications, and resources to the cloud, the attack surface is expanding rapidly. Security operations center (SOC) and incident response teams have the difficult job of defending these dynamic environments, while being bombarded with thousands — even millions — of security alerts each day. Triaging these alerts takes too long, and many are never investigated at all.

Confidently Protect Cloud Assets with Recorded Future and Microsoft Azure

At Recorded Future's Predict 2020 conference, Jason Wescott, principal program manager, Microsoft Azure, illustrated how Recorded Future’s partnership with Microsoft Azure brings elite security intelligence to the cloud, empowering security teams with the real-time, actionable context they need to successfully disrupt adversaries and defend their organizations. Watch that full session here:

Unprecedented intelligence from Recorded Future is accessible directly within the popular Microsoft services security analysts already use and trust, such as the Azure Sentinel cloud SIEM and Defender ATP endpoint detection solution. With real-time, easily consumable context at their fingertips, security teams are empowered to become agile defenders through automated processes that:

  • Accelerate Alert Triage and Investigation. Enrich security alerts with real-time external intelligence from an unrivaled variety of open source, dark web, technical sources, and original research. Reduce false positives to more efficiently resolve Microsoft Sentinel alerts and confidently prioritize and address the IOCs that matters most.
  • Detect Threats Fast. Spend less time researching and more time remediating by correlating external intelligence against internal telemetry data and layering elite security intelligence on top of internal activity in Microsoft Azure Sentinel. This provides analysts with visibility into technical indicators, and empowers them to make prioritization decisions based on a real-time Recorded Future risk score that is backed by transparent evidence.
  • Block Threats Before Impact. Access high-confidence intelligence on malicious indicators identified across an unrivaled range of open, closed, and technical sources. This enables Microsoft Defender ATP users to validate known risky indicators currently living on endpoints, and proactively block threats in their Microsoft cloud environment before they become real issues.
