Mitigating risks and appeasing auditors is a balancing act – one made far easier with the right solution. Say hello to Azure Sentinel.
The idea of a truly ‘single pane of glass’ view has become something of a white whale; organisations now invest heavily in time and money to find the elusive ‘perfect’ solution, missing out on developments, overlooking risks, and limiting their own growth in the process.
It’s understandable, of course: a single pane of glass would allow for an informed, real-time view of everything – good and bad – currently happening within their environment. Unfortunately, such a tool does not exist out of the box, due to the differing needs its users would have versus the one-size-fits-all approach befitting many off-the-shelf solutions.
Understandably, this leads to dissatisfaction and disappointment at best, and a tangible disconnection between leaders and their data at worst.
Be Audit-Ready with Azure Sentinel
There is, however, hope in the form of Microsoft Azure Sentinel. A System Information and Event Management (SIEM) tool, Azure Sentinel offers integrations with other Azure services, allowing for deeply intertwined data, enriched insights, and much greater control than exporting to a third-party application.
Sentinel is not exclusive to Microsoft products, either: it’s Microsoft’s aim to make integration with services such as AWS, Barracuda, Check Point, Cisco, CyberArk and Palo Alto as straightforward as possible, offering deep insights into these respective systems.
Mitigate Risk with a True View
Aside from appeasing auditors, adopting Azure Sentinel also allows for organisations to better mitigate risks, catching potential threats early on through advanced insights and understanding.
This in combination with the unparalleled integrations with Microsoft’s own services, advanced machine learning, Microsoft’s Intelligent Security Graph, threat hunting using industry standard Jupyter and advanced automated remediation tools puts Sentinel in a unique position to be the foundation for a unified view.
