Microsoft Azure Sentinel is a SIEM and Security Orchestration and Automated Response (SOAR) system in Microsoft’s cloud platform. Therefore, it enables businesses to not only collect data about security threats but also automatically respond to security events without human assistance. With Microsoft Sentinel, customers get a single solution for threat visibility, proactive hunting, attack detection and threat response. 

By choosing to partner with Microsoft Security in 2018 we knew that their drive and expertise would soon outpace competitors in the cybersecurity space. We have and will continue to provide the ongoing value our customers get from Microsoft Sentinel today.
