Microsoft's Azure Sentinel SIEM Now Generally Available

The cloud-native SIEM is designed to search data from users, applications, servers, and devices running on-prem and in the cloud.

Microsoft's Azure Sentinel, a new cloud-native security information and event management (SIEM) system, is now generally available following more than six months of public preview.

Azure Sentinel, first announced at the end of February, was built to help organizations better identify threats in the cloud. Seventy percent of businesses continue to anchor security analytics and operations with SIEM systems, and 82% have committed to moving large volumes of applications and workloads to the public cloud, Microsoft reports, citing research from ESG.

Like other SIEM systems, Azure Sentinel pulls large volumes of data from users, applications, servers, and devices running on-prem or in the cloud so admins can better identify threats. On top of that, it's tightly integrated with Microsoft services and also scours data from tools including Azure Security Center, Azure Active Directory, and Microsoft 365. Beta testers report the tool is easy to set up and eliminates the hassle of moving data across separate systems.

Beyond Microsoft services, the SIEM pulls information from third-party tools built by Cisco, Check Point, Palo Alto Networks, and Symantec, Microsoft said when the service debuted. It has published a pricing model, with pay-as-you-go rates starting at $2.46 per GB data scanned.
