The benefits of an automated approach

With multiple clouds and endless malicious hacking attempts across your infrastructure, the management of alerts and desired response can be a huge burden on your IT team. Especially if multiple security vendors are being used. Through Microsoft Sentinel, these tasks can be consolidated and processes put in place to provide an AI driven automated approach, delivering: 

  • Faster detection, response and remediation capabilities
  • Fewer errors and reduced "alert fatigue”
  • Security resources freed from repetitive tasks
  • Improved user experience and satisfaction
