MICROSOFT'S NEW CLOUD SECURITY TOOLS AIM TO REDUCE ALERT FATIGUE
Microsoft today unveiled a pair of new cloud-based security offerings aimed at helping large organizations cope with advanced security threats. The announcement comes ahead of the RSA Conference, where the two products will be showcased for security professionals.Azure Sentinel is a new service offering within Azure that Microsoft bills as a "cloud-native Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tool." It's designed to pull in vast amounts of data from other cloud-based services, including Office 365 and third-party solutions, and then use AI to reduce the noise and identify actual threats. The results appear in an Azure-based dashboard like the one shown here. Ann Johnson, Microsoft Corporate Vice President for Cybersecurity, said that the use of AI and an organization's own machine learning tools can dramatically reduce "alert fatigue" for frontline security professionals.According to Microsoft, Azure Sentinel supports open standards such as Common Event Format (CEF), as well as allowing connections to third-party security tools from Check Point, Cisco, F5, Fortinet, Palo Alto and Symantec and integration with partners such as ServiceNow that offer a broader set of security and IT management services.
