A point-solution approach to security may provide access to the latest and greatest security tools, but it can also create levels of complexity that can hinder businesses’ ability to defend against constantly evolving threats. A best-of-platform approach to consolidation reduces complexity and costs while improving visibility across the organization.
Consolidate security with a more cost-effective solution
As the security landscape evolves, with new threats cropping up almost daily, security teams face a heavy burden to keep pace. A complex mix of siloed, single-point security solutions are time-consuming to deploy and inevitably lead to a patchwork of consoles and reports that are difficult to monitor and manage across the enterprise. In a study by Forrester Consulting, 59% of organizations acknowledged the challenge of correlating security alerts from disparate technologies to detect threats. In addition to reducing complexity, a consolidated solution can improve your overall security posture by filling gaps created by a lack of integration across the technology stack. Study found that organizations which choose Microsoft Defender for Office 365 P2, significantly reduced the likelihood of a security breach and decreased the time required for investigation and remediation of security incidents.
Microsoft Office 365 Threat Intelligence Microsoft Defender for Office 365 P2 enhances threat protection by enabling organizations to better detect, analyze, remediate, and educate against cyberthreats and improving its customers’ overall security. With the deployment of Office 365 E5, organizations can consolidate their security solutions onto a single platform, reducing licensing costs expended on a myriad of third-party security solutions. With Threat Intelligence, these organizations gain full visibility into their email, collaboration applications, and Microsoft Defender ecosystems, resulting in significant time savings for the security operations teams, as they no longer need to manage and maintain multiple third-party security solution software or vendors. By implementing Office 365 E5, organizations can leverage Threat Intelligence to greatly reduce the time-to-action and number of hours spent on remediation of phishing and malware events, resulting in a significant decrease in the impact and number of successful attacks. With the reduction in both the number and severity of security events a reduction is observed in end user downtime. With Microsoft Defender for Office 365 P2, users are less likely to be impacted by malware of phishing attacks that require downtime, such as manual remediation or complete refresh for their device, eliminating 6 hours of downtime per user each year. Malware and phishing attacks create a considerable risk of a serious data breach that could have wide-reaching business impacts on an organization. With Microsoft Defender for Office 365 P2, organizations reduce the likelihood of a data breach by 60% and experience 89.3% reduction in the investigation and remediation time.
Deliver unified end-user experiences for greater security
CISOs have long known that security is only as strong as individual users across the organization. 68% of organizations in a recent survey by Cybersecurity Insiders believe they are vulnerable to insider attack, 42% said their ability to monitor, detect and respond to insider threats is very or extremely effective. Insider risk includes the unintentional leaks that may occur due to overly complex security tools and policies. The shift to remote work makes it imperative to provide easy-to-use tools for securely accessing data, apps and systems from any location. Modern security tools provide strong, secure access to applications while removing the traditional friction points that can inhibit productivity. A seamless single sign-on experience provides quick access from anywhere and can save users an average of 10 minutes per week. Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) is one proven method to address the dreaded password reuse issue. Another option is to remove the password entirely using Microsoft Authenticator. Using identity as the control plane lets organizations treat every access request as untrusted until the user and device are fully verified.
Reduce cyber risk with integrated, best-in-class protection
Poor security posture is often rooted in complexity. A consolidated tool set can improve your organization’s overall security posture by reducing complexity and integrating protection across the enterprise. An integrated solution will also help security teams more effectively deploy and leverage automation and AI technologies to further improve protection. Automation is critical for modern threat protection, the AI and automation capabilities in Microsoft 365 Defender reduce alert triage and correlation by 50× on average, empowering teams to more quickly detect and respond to threats.
Microsoft offers a unique approach that empowers security professionals with both cloud-native SIEM and XDR tools from a single vendor. This brings a new level of integration that gives defenders the best of both worlds: end-to-end visibility across all of their resources and intelligent alerts built with a deep understanding of individual resources, enhanced with human and machine intelligence. Microsoft 365 Defender provides nearly 100% complete coverage across emails and docs, endpoints, identities and apps across kill-chain stages, also leading out-of-box visibility into attacker activities to dramatically reduce manual work for the security operations centre.
Better visibility, supported by AI and automation capabilities, makes it easier to identify vulnerabilities and quickly mitigate threats to reduce risk. Strong, seamless, end-to-end security will also provide a better experience for the workforce.

верига на модела за сигурност Zero Trust. Microsoft поддържа сигурността Zero Trust чрез множество слоеве на защита. По-долу са описани шестте слоя за сигурност Zero Trust и как да ги защитите.
Моделът Zero Trust предполага доверие след проверка, т.е. за да се доверите, първо трябва да проверите. Моделът Zero Trust въвежда строга проверка на самоличността, проверява съответствието на устройството преди предоставяне на достъп и гарантира достъп с най-малко права само до изрично разрешени ресурси. В тази статия обобщаваме основните елементи на Zero Trust.
The increasing prevalence of cloud-based services, mobile computing, internet of things
(IoT), and bring your own device (BYOD) in the workforce have changed the technology
landscape for the modern enterprise. Today, organizations need a new security model that more effectively adapts to the complexity of the modern environment, embraces the mobile workforce, and protects people, devices, applications, and data wherever they are located. The Zero Trust security model says “never trust, always verify.”
There is no going back to the work model that prevailed before the pandemic. Hybrid work is the new normal organizations need to be able to provide to their employees, as Microsoft’s work trend index summarized in March. Azure Virtual Desktop is one of the solutions Microsoft provide for organizations on this journey. Using Azure Virtual Desktop enables a secure, remote desktop experience from anywhere, helping companies build resilience as they adapt to working in new ways. To help seamlessly deploy Azure Virtual Desktop, it’s important to understand the prerequisites and the four steps required: Plan-Prepare- Deploy-Optimize.
