How Did We Become MXDR Verified?
After being nominated by Microsoft’s top engineers, Difenda underwent months of multi-stage assessments to prove our abilities to closely integrate Microsoft 365 Defender, Microsoft Defender for Cloud and Microsoft Sentinel with 24/7/365 advanced threat hunting and detection for a unified SecOps stack.
The Microsoft team tested out threat profiling, threat defence, threat hunting, and threat response capabilities. Difenda’s solution exceeded expectations when it came to combining expertly automated technology with human-led services to provide optimal outcomes for our customers.
