Digital initiatives have changed the enterprise attack surface and how organizations appear online, both to users and malicious actors. Meanwhile, the threat landscape has evolved right alongside the digital presence of businesses and remains in flux as attackers continuously adopt new tools and tactics. With the paradigm for keeping organizations secure ever-changing, security teams have no choice but to adapt to the perpetual evolution of both the organizations they defend and the adversaries from which they protect it.
In this new dynamic age of cybersecurity, knowledge and context are power, and being mobile ensures survival. The security solutions that matter are automatic and integrate with existing investments. They also include a game-changing amount of context. The RiskIQ Intelligence Connector, the integration linking RiskIQ's Internet Intelligence Graph and Microsoft Sentinel, was built for this.
RiskIQ and Microsoft Sentinel Enable Next-Gen Security Teams
Microsoft Sentinel is a cloud-native, next-gen SIEM that transforms how security teams triage incidents in their organization. It's a force-multiplier for security teams that gives them unprecedented context and mobility. With just a few clicks, a business can be up, operating, and processing alerts to supercharge threat investigations and automate incident response to deal with threats at scale.
For RiskIQ, context and knowledge are everything. Our Internet Intelligence Graph absorbs internet data on a massive scale to continuously map the billions of relationships between internet-exposed infrastructure worldwide, providing in-depth knowledge of the internet and how organizations and threat actors fit into it. When this outside-the-firewall intelligence combines with firewall and endpoint telemetry data in Microsoft Sentinel, security operations teams have a full view of their organization's attack surface and unparalleled context around threats and security incidents.
Today, security teams are dealing with shrinking budgets and a ballooning attack surface made larger by the COVID-19 crisis, which forced employees to work from home, moving the edges of their organization's digital attack surfaces with them. At the same time, internet-scale threats are targeting organizations at unprecedented rates.
The RiskIQ Intelligence Connector
With the RiskIQ Intelligence Connector, Microsoft Azure users can tap into petabytes of external threat intelligence. Incidents can be enriched automatically using Sentinel Playbooks, saving time and resources.
Modern cyber threats expose the limitations of traditional security tools and network security controls, taking a toll on flat-footed organizations that aren't able to quickly add the intelligence, context, and automation necessary to combat them. According to the Verizon Data Breach report, external-facing web applications, into which network security tools lack visibility, comprised the vector category most commonly exploited in hacking-related breaches. Organizations must be able to access as much data as possible to gain visibility into their attack surface and the threats targeting them.
For security teams, defending the enterprise no longer means just adding another one-dimensional cybersecurity tool. They must adopt intelligent, automated force multipliers that meet challenges and threats head-on. Microsoft's cloud-native SIEM, when combined with RiskIQ, has the potential to reshape how security teams operate, seamlessly integrating the most comprehensive external visibility with the advanced threat detection, AI, and orchestration found in Azure Sentinel.
