Three reasons to shift to integrated threat protection

Security is at an inflection point. Attacks are becoming more sophisticated due to challenges ranging from talent shortages and cost balancing to navigating the pressures of hybrid work.

Meanwhile, the security market is more fragmented and complex than ever. The average enterprise now uses more than 30 different security tools, often disjointed and ‘bolted-on’, providing limited visibility and inadequate insights to security operations centres (SOCs).

Security and compliance leaders want a better understanding of the latest risks and threats, but they also need to know what’s working, what isn’t and where they have gaps.

While the scope of today’s security challenges may seem overwhelming, there’s cause for optimism for Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) looking to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of security operations. The answer lies in an integrated, end-to-end approach to threat protection, which will help organisations:

Reason 1: Do more with less. Consolidate point solutions and reduce SecOps overhead.

Reason 2: Empower SecOps to focus on high-value tasks. Use tools that increase efficiency and make even junior analysts more capable than ever.

Reason 3: Increase employee productivity. Protect your organisation in a way that lets your people be fearless as they create and innovate.

This approach is enabled by integrating an extended detection and response (XDR) solution with a cloud-native security information and event management (SIEM) system that uses artificial intelligence (AI) and automation capabilities. The integrated solution can help your SOC become more predictive, proactive, and preventive against attacks across the enterprise.

As organisations look to do more with less, an integrated approach such as Microsoft’s SIEM and XDR can help. It can reduce complexity by consolidating individual tools — and because it’s cloud-native, an integrated solution can also improve performance and scale.

By consolidating tools with Microsoft’s integrated solution, you can also save by paying for only what you use. You can also reduce the SecOps overhead required to manage solutions by increasing automation and integration.
