Our Approach to Best-of-Platform
At Bulletproof, we fulfill the promise of best-of-platform protection with the Microsoft Security platform. In our experience, it offers unmatched integration and automation.
The security industry is inundated with acronyms, and the latest to hit the market is XDR, or Extended Detection and Response. It is defined by Gartner as “a SaaS-based, vendor-specific security threat detection and incident response tool that natively integrates multiple security products into a cohesive security operations system that unifies all licensed components.” This industry shift toward a platform approach is in recognition of the gaps that exist in the legacy best-of-breed model, particularly as it relates to response capabilities.
Microsoft has been a leader in this space well before the acronym was coined, and recently rebranded their security suite of products under the Microsoft Defender brand to better reflect the pre-existing integration across its platform. Microsoft Defender includes coverage across all areas of a customer's computing environment, including:
- Identity (on cloud and on prem)
- Infrastructure (on cloud and on prem)
- Productivity (O365)
- Application (SQL Server)
- Endpoint (traditional and mobile)
- OT operating environments
No other security vendor is able to offer such a wide breadth of integrated coverage for the entire enterprise.
Integrating the Microsoft Defender toolset with Microsoft’s Sentinel SIEM/SOAR unlocks full end-to-end visibility across all resources (including edge network) with correlated, prioritized alerts based on the deep understanding Microsoft has of the products that it has built, its vast threat intelligence capabilities, and artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML). Beyond more accurate alerting, this native integration also enables intelligent automated response and containment activities across the entire platform, something no other vendor can match.
The Microsoft Defender suite of products provides this complete solution, and when integrated together through a single pane of glass (Microsoft’s Sentinel SIEM/SOAR), allows deep investigation, cross-correlation between components, and automatic remediation and mitigation of security incidents. Most SIEMs take logs from multiple sources. Microsoft Sentinel goes a step further. Now you can get a unified view of all those inputs in Sentinel, and seamlessly drill down into an incident in Microsoft 365 Defender.
