Microsoft Sentinel provides a single source for alert detection, threat awareness, proactive hunting, and threat response throughout your organization. It gives users an overall perspective of their organization, reducing the stress of increasingly complex threats, rising alarm volumes, and extended resolution times. Ultimately, Sentinel is a trusted, scalable, cloud-based solution and can benefit businesses in a variety of ways.
One of the fundamental pillars of Microsoft Sentinel and one of its distinguishing features is machine learning (ML). Microsoft Sentinel provides ML in a variety of experiences, including the recently launched Build-Your-Own ML (BYO ML) platform. ML detection algorithms may adjust to specific surroundings and shifts in user behavior, reducing false positives and spotting risks that a conventional approach would miss. Although many organizations are aware of the usefulness of ML for security, few of them have the luxury of employing personnel who are knowledgeable in both security and ML. Microsoft created just the right framework for both casual users and experts to advance along with Microsoft in their ML journey.
Users may utilize the robust hunting search-and-query tools provided by Microsoft Sentinel to proactively search for security vulnerabilities across data sources used by your company, before an alarm is raised.
Sentinel makes it simple to gather security information from devices, users, apps, and cloud servers across your entire organization. Removing the need to spend time setting up, maintaining, and scaling infrastructure frees you from the weight of traditional SIEMs and ensures that your team is immediately recognizing genuine threats.
There are numerous Microsoft product connectors included with Microsoft Sentinel that are ready to use and offer real-time integration. For instance, Microsoft 365 Defender connections and Microsoft 365 sources like Office 365, Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), Microsoft Defender for Identity, and Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps are examples of service-to-service connectors. For non-Microsoft products, you may also enable out-of-the-box connectivity to the larger security ecosystem. For instance, you can link your data sources with Microsoft Sentinel using Syslog, Common Event Format (CEF), or REST APIs.

Additionally, Microsoft Sentinel offers machine learning algorithms that map your network behavior and then scan all your resources for anomalies. These algorithms connect disparate data points by merging low-fidelity alerts concerning various entities into prospective high-fidelity security events.
Zero In on Threats
You can use the Microsoft Sentinel deep investigation capabilities to identify the cause of a potential security threat and determine its scale. To find the source of the threat, you can select an entity on an interactive graph, post questions for that entity, and delve deeper into that entity and its connections.
Users may utilize the robust hunting search-and-query tools provided by Microsoft Sentinel to proactively search for security vulnerabilities across data sources used by your company, before an alarm is raised. You may also build unique detection criteria depending on your hunting query and present those insights as alerts to your security incident responders once you’ve identified which hunting query offers high-value insights into potential assaults. You can also save notable events as a bookmark, revisit them later, share them with others, or group them with other related events to form a unified report for further investigation.
These benefits are only the beginning of Microsoft Sentinel’s potential! Our July 13th virtual event, How Microsoft Sentinel is Disrupting the SIEM and XDR Markets, will provide you with an overview of the uses and benefits of Microsoft Sentinel and how easily this tool can be leveraged to protect your infrastructure, especially if your team operates primarily on the Microsoft stack.
