Microsoft announced a number of changes coming to Azure during Ignite 2019 to attract more customers. However, as more businesses move to cloud-based environments, securing cloud systems are also becoming more complex. In order to bring more security options to Azure customers, Trustwave has unveiled several new services that will allow customers to monitor and take action against any potential threats.
The new Trustwave Threat Detection and Response services for Microsoft Azure will integrate with Azure Sentinel and Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection. The service will collect data from users to analyze potential malware or any security threats. Moreover, the service will use Microsoft Security Graph API to collect relevant data to improve efficiency.
Talking about the latest addition, Chris Schueler, senior vice president of managed security services at Trustwave said, “As enterprises continue to move operations to cloud and hybrid cloud environments, detecting and responding to threats has become increasingly challenging as the attack surface expands and the sheer amount of new security technologies to comprehend grows. Our integration with Microsoft layers powerful threat detection and response capabilities onto Microsoft Azure and leverages elite security experts to analyze data flows, identify irregularities and jump into action when needed.”
Scott Woodgate, senior director, Azure Security at Microsoft added, “Microsoft welcomes the opportunity to partner with an innovative MSSP like Trustwave and build the future of intelligent security together. Trustwave’s strong threat detection and response expertise paired with Microsoft’s cloud native tools will enable customers to build a more proactive answer to incident response.”
