E2E Microsoft Security Roadmap
End To End Microsoft Security Roadmap | 2 Week Assessment
When customers with challenging environments request help from Microsoft, they call us.
Whether just getting started or already deployed, Difenda can help Microsoft customers decipher the complexities of Microsoft Security and develop tailored guidelines for your company to do more with less. With this comprehensive roadmap, you will discover your organizational threat landscape and gain visibility into your IT environment.
How It Works:
Many businesses have multiple overlapping, and bespoke tools in their security environment and don’t even know where to start when it comes to strengthening their security posture. That is exactly what Difenda’s end-to-end roadmap is for. We help you take a step back and understand your current environment, then plan steps to get to where you want to go.
- Information collection workshop: Difenda will meet with you to collect information about you and the current security infrastructure of your business to assess your current environment.
- Difenda provides a visual of the environment and together we decide on the ideal outcome for security posture.
- Difenda will provide a modular and incremental security map with actionable steps to achieve that goal while maximizing your Microsoft investment.
The phases of the assessment and roadmap include:
Discover: Review organization, environment, Microsoft licensing, and existing roadmaps. Develop: Analyze and document the findings from the discovery. Develop the roadmap and related work plans Review & Signoff: Assist with review and approval of roadmap with the senior sponsor(s) Execute: Iteratively execute, monitor, and manage roadmap activities Manage: Difenda Shield suite of managed products: Managed SIEM, Managed EDR, AVM, MDR for IT, and MDR for OT
- Discover Microsoft products and services that meet your business goals
- Consolidate your security stack
- Optimize your Microsoft Licensing spend
- Understand which Microsoft products and services address your technical and business needs
- Decrease your security program’s total cost of ownership
What Sets Us Apart:
Over the past decade, our team noticed that increasingly complex security stacks were causing many businesses with Microsoft Security E3 or E5 licenses to experience trouble with optimizing their licensing spend, achieving specific security goals, and integrating their security capabilities without losing previous custom development efforts.
To resolve this, Difenda developed tools and systems in collaboration with Microsoft Security to consolidate and simplify your cybersecurity program. Including our new End-to-End Microsoft Security Roadmap which is designed to help you discover effective Microsoft products and services, uncover technology you have already invested in, and understand which Microsoft products and services address your technical and business needs.
