Re: Great start
Microsoft realized that if you want a job done, do it yourself -- especially when many of your users lack the savviness necessary to pick appropriate security packages.

Re: Great start
Ah ok that makes sense... Since they have cornered a large market share at the OS level they could potentially use some of their secure coding to make other security vendors irrelevant but I doubt it.


And perhaps that is a good thing for security. Having inconsistent vertical layers of security can be a benefit as circumvention is not as easily attained.

Re: Great start
They tried with Forefront a few years ago--and it failed miserably. So now Microsoft is all about building security into its products/services, secure coding, etc. The services announcement they made is aimed at their own customers.

Re: Great start
Does Microsoft offer a security suite for other companies? I haven't heard too much about security services being availlable.

Re: Great start
I think it's really interesting to see how Microsoft has evolved its approach to security over the past few years.

Great start
This is a great start. I hope that other companies will gain something from this holistic approach. I'm glad to see that all their employees are entitled to security training as the end user could be the pitfall in security but could also be your saving grace if you provide them the tools.

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
