Our new SIEM tool: Microsoft Azure Sentinel, intelligent security analytics for your entire enterprise

March 13, 2019 Leave a comment

As we know, many legitimate threats go unnoticed and with the unsurprising high volume of alerts and your team spending far too much time in infrastructure setup or BAU tasks, you need a solution that empowers your existing SecOps team to see the threats clearer and eliminate the distractions.

That’s why we reimagined the SIEM tool as a new cloud-native solution called Microsoft Azure Sentinel. Azure Sentinel provides intelligent security analytics at cloud scale for your entire enterprise. Azure Sentinel makes it easy to collect security data across your entire hybrid organization from devices, to users, to apps, to servers on any cloud.

Collect data across your enterprise easily – With Azure Sentinel you can aggregate all security data with built-in connectors, native integration of Microsoft signals, and support for industry standard log formats like common event format and syslog.

Analyze and detect threats quickly with AI on your side – Security analysts face a huge burden from triaging as they sift through a sea of alerts, and correlate alerts from different products manually or using a traditional correlation engine.


Investigate and hunt for suspicious activities – Graphical and AI-based investigation will reduce the time it takes to understand the full scope of an attack and its impact. You can visualize the attack and take quick actions in the same dashboard.  


Automate common tasks and threat response – While AI sharpens your focus on finding problems, once you have solved the problem you don’t want to keep finding the same problems over and over – rather you want to automate response to these issues.

My Sessions:

AZR-I201

 Wednesday 11:15 – 12:45 

Getting to Know Windows Azure IaaS, Part 1

Whether   you build apps or support the infrastructure that runs the apps, the cloud   can be a really big place. For some, it’s a natural evolution for their   application and infrastructure to embrace the power and scale of the cloud.   For others, it’s a journey that has to begin with a single step. Windows   Azure provides that first step with a scalable, flexible platform for deploying   your applications your way. With our Infrastructure as a Service platform   (IaaS) called Windows Azure Virtual Machines, you get the flexibility to   choose between Windows and Linux with full control over the operating system   configuration and installed software, matched with the portability of Hyper-V   disk images. Windows Azure Virtual Machines provide the perfect environment   for meeting all of your Infrastructure-as-a-Service needs. To learn more   about our Infrastructure as a Service platform, we invite all developers and   IT professionals to join Matt Hester as he introduces you to the Microsoft   Cloud Platform, dives deep into Windows Azure Virtual Machines, and helps   walk you through a hands-on demonstration of the power of IaaS on the Windows   Azure platform.

This is part 1 of 2. Please plan on attending both WAD-IL201 and WAD-IL202 to   complete the lab.

The lab requires you to connect to the Windows Azure Portal, where you will   provision three separate virtual machines in the cloud and configure them each   via a Remote Desktop client connection. All participants need to have access   for Windows Azure prior to the lab. You can register for a FREE 90-day trial   of the Windows Azure prior to the lab. You can sign up for your FREE trial   here:  http://aka.ms/IaasBootCamp.

Microsoft System Center 2012 – Orchestrator: Overview and Automation   of IT Process

This   lab guides you through several process automation examples, providing   hands-on experience with the concepts explained in the course manual and   provides real-world context. In this exercise, you are introduced to the   interfaces available with Orchestrator. Create a Runbook to perform actions   such as working with File Management Objects, monitor a folder for the   accumulation of more than 5 log files, move the files to an archive folder   and log an event for each file archive operation, using the Runbook Tester   Console to Validate Runbooks. This lab also covers the creation of a Runbook   to perform the actions, such as automate recovery of a Windows Service based   on alert detection from a unit monitor in System Center Operations Manager to   address the intermittent Windows service failures. It also highlights   advanced concepts and techniques that can be employed when creating runbooks   in Orchestrator.
