Difenda today announced its participation in the Microsoft Security Copilot Partner Private Preview. Difenda was selected based on their proven experience with Microsoft Security technologies, willingness to explore and provide feedback on cutting-edge functionality, and close relationship with Microsoft.
“AI is one of the defining technologies of our time and has the potential to drive meaningful, step-change progress in cybersecurity,” said Ann Johnson, corporate vice president, Microsoft Security Business Development. “Security is a team sport, and we are pleased to work alongside our Security Copilot partner ecosystem to deliver customers solutions that enhance cyber defenses and make the promise of AI real.”
Difenda is working with Microsoft product teams to help shape Security Copilot product development in several ways, including validation and refinement of new and upcoming scenarios, providing feedback on product development and operations to be incorporated into future product releases, and validation and feedback of APIs to assist with Security Copilot extensibility.

“We are thrilled about the opportunity to layer Microsoft Security Copilot on top of the automation and orchestration technology we have developed through Difenda AIRO,” says Manoj Arora, CEO at Difenda. “Throughout our work with the Microsoft Security Copilot Development team, Microsoft Security Copilot has been integrated with AIRO to support an enhanced triage and response experience for our managed security customers.”
Difenda AIRO is an Automated Incident Response and Orchestration engine that integrates into the customer’s Microsoft Sentinel instance and works in collaboration with Azure automation services. It leverages threat enrichment, auto-triage, incident scoring, auto-response, and service synchronization to enhance incident response capabilities and streamline security operations.
“We continue to focus on delivering the best outcomes for our customers,” says Andrew Hodges, Vice President of Service Delivery at Difenda. “The Difenda AIRO-Microsoft Security Copilot integration will allow our customers to accelerate AI-driven security operations with quick-to-deploy security operations playbooks, configurable verdict playbooks that reduce alert noise, and detailed incident activity visibility.”
Features of the integration include dynamic updates of key data points and automated Incident-related tasks and suggestions to be completed by the Difenda C3 SecOps SOC and customer teams.

Microsoft Security Copilot
Security Copilot is the first AI-powered security product that enables security professionals to respond to threats quickly, process signals at machine speed, and assess risk exposure in minutes. It combines an advanced large language model (LLM) with a security-specific model that is informed by Microsoft’s unique global threat intelligence and more than 65 trillion daily signals.
What Does this Mean For Difenda Customers?
This exclusive opportunity to participate in the Microsoft Security Copilot Partner Private Preview gives Difenda exclusive access to AI-powered security technology that many other MSSPs don’t have. It means that we’ll be experts in this cutting-edge technology even before it’s available to customers, making us the go-to partner for implementing Security Copilot into your environments once released.
Difenda is actively developing Security Copilot skills designed to augment Security Copilot and Difenda MXDR service capabilities. For example, our RIR Initiation skill can escalate an incident to C3 Remote Incident Response team by opening an RIR case tied to the original Sentinel Incident record. By building out these prompts and integrations, we’re able to anticipate and provide you with the tools you need ahead of time.
This opportunity also provides us with the information needed to help you get ready for Microsoft Security Copilot with the required technology, operational needs and business insights.
