Security is one of the biggest challenges that modern businesses face. Recently, many organizations have suffered various cyberattacks that have revealed tons of confidential data. These attacks have become much more complex, and it can take several months to detect the intrusion in the network.
Microsoft offers Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (previously called Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection), to help you increase cyber security awareness. It is an enterprise endpoint security platform designed to prevent, identify, analyze, and respond to advanced threats.
Microsoft Defender for Endpoint continuously checks the network for malicious activity using the following combination of technology built into Windows 10 and robust cloud services:
Defender for Endpoint includes a wide range of capabilities:
This embedded capability uses a risk-based approach to discover, prioritize, and remediate endpoint vulnerabilities and misconfigurations in real-time.
This set of capabilities apply proper configuration settings and mitigation techniques to eliminate risks and minimize the vulnerable areas of your organization. Attack Surface reduction also provides network protection and web protection to help you manage access to malicious IP addresses, domains, and URLs.
Microsoft Defender for Endpoint uses next-generation protection to block sophisticated attacks and all types of emerging threats, including never-seen-before polymorphic/metamorphic malware and fileless/file-based threats.
Endpoint detection and response capabilities are used to recognize attacks using behavioral analytics and machine learning. Advanced hunting offers a threat-hunting tool that allows you to discover breaches and create custom detections.
This feature helps organizations reduce the volume of alerts in minutes. It automatically analyzes them and applies artificial intelligence to determine if it is really a threat in order to decide what actions to take. This functionality allows IT departments to concentrate on more strategic tasks for the company.
This new managed threat hunting service provides proactive hunting, prioritization, and additional context and insights that further empower Security operation centers (SOCs) to discover and respond to threats quickly and accurately.
