Today, IBM, the world’s leading information technology and global services company, announced the deployment of its latest security technology solutions using the Microsoft Azure Sentinel.
Built in the Azure platform and powered by the cloud, the Microsoft Azure Sentinel is a Security Orchestration, Response, Detect and Investigation solution built to help security teams gather and analyze large amount of data at scale to catch the emerging network threats.
Azure Sentinel is able to ingest events from more than more than 1 million security events per day from over 1,000 different sources including: –
§ Network, cloud, and mobile security and data center applications,
§ Including Azure Active Directory, Azure SQL Server, Microsoft Azure Exchange, Windows Server 2016
§ and Windows Azure Cloud Platform.
Additionally, Azure Sentinel can connect with the user’s
§ application, application security, and
§ other sources that can be combined
§ to provide visibility into the entire attack sequence.
Once we connect the data sources to the Azure Sentinel,
We can monitor the data with a variety of data management tools such as Azure Active Directory, which offers versatility in creating custom workbooks.
As an example, Azure Sentinel provides built – in automation to solve repetitive tasks and quickly respond to threats.
A for example: Azure Monitor Workbooks, a powerful tool for building and monitoring data.
Further, extra automation opportunities exist for cloud – based workflow platforms, including an out – of – the – box connector which allows the developers to listen to the Azure Sentinel events.
a. Build a playbook that can automatically create ServiceNow, Remedy, Ivantis’ incidents from Azure Sentinel alerts,
b. and automatically trigger Azure Sentinel alerts, Azure CloudWatch, or Azure Security Alerts.
By using Microsoft Graph Security API, you can ingest security alerts from ServiceNow Security Operations to automatically create a Service now incident from Azure Sentinel alerts for security incidents.
It can then orchestrate business processes which can include building incidents, communicating with team members through Microsoft Teams, and making actions such as disabling user Azure ads, blocking firewalls and IP addresses, etc.
Managed Sentinel may help the organization with an initial build of the Azure Sentinel SIEM and set up log sources to feed in the SIEMs’ log management system, such as the Microsoft Azure Logs API.
In addition to building out the initial security infrastructure for your organization, such as a network or data center, Azure Sentinel can automate responses using orchestration across the entire estate.
By integrating playbooks with existing tools, you can simplify security orchestration and automate common tasks.
a. The new Azure Sentinel Orchestration Toolkit for Azure Security Orchestrations simplifies security orchestrations by integrating with your existing tool.
One of the benefits of subscribing to the Azure Marketplace for Azure is the ability to use a common control panel for all Azure services, including Azure Stack.
b. This common control panel means less of a steep learning curve and simplifies deployment of Azure service management tools and services.
c. It uses native Microsoft services for the security of its Azure services such as Azure File Protection, Azure Security Management, and Azure Resource Manager.
We can say the Azure Log Analytics is the backbone which we use, and it is very fast, versatile, offers the ability to analyze and correlate millions of logs in a few seconds.
Azure Sentinel collects data from all the data in a single location in the cloud,
such as the Azure Cloud, Azure Server, and Azure Security Center.
Yes, now Sentinel can be able to collect information from all sorts of data sources, including Azure Active Directory, Azure Web Services, Amazon Web Service, and more.
These names include Microsoft 365 sources, including Office 365, Microsoft Azure, Azure Active Directory, and Azure Cloud App Security, among a few others.
As mentioned earlier, Security Center is only one part of the Azure Sentinel package, as Azure Sentinel covers SIEM,
SIEM (SOAR) and scenarios built on other Microsoft security solutions.
Our team can offer Microsoft Sentinel include an assessment of the entire security environment of the company,
a. the design of the Azure Sentinel solution,
b. cost analyses, a deployment roadmap and
c. the migration of the Security Operations Center to the Azure Sentinel platform.
The Azure Security Center embeds security management tools that provide insight into security state in the cloud, including native platforms and hybrid environments.
Moreover, you can analyze data from third – party security solutions and also analyze where the data comes from, such as the security of your cloud, your data center, and your network.
Azure Sentinel can quickly download a client’s Office cloud data and include it with security information to find threats. Azure Sentinel, which can combine the customer Office and cloud information with the security data of third – party security solutions to found threats and report it to Azure.
The Microsoft Graph Security API is integrated into Azure Sentinel by default, enabling organizations to import their threat intelligence feeds and customize threat detection alerts and rules.
Azure Sentinel also integrates with the Microsoft Graph Security API, allowing an organization to import its own threat detection feeds and customize threat detection and warning rules.
It also ties in to what security experts call the “next step” of the Azure Sentinel, the security expert call if you have an incident or breach and have to augment your current SOC capabilities.
Managed Security Services for the Microsoft Sentinel offer
Threat detection and reporting,
Including 24×7 monitoring for Azure Sentinel alert and
Automated Threat Notification and Response.
