Cybersecurity continues to be a growing concern for organizations and their board of directors. If there is an area of increased spend within IT departments, it is usually in the area of cybersecurity. Regardless of whether an organization has increased budgets or not, they should be looking to optimize that spend and use their resources as efficiently as possible.
Microsoft has made a lot of significant investments in cybersecurity tools recently including Azure Security Center, Windows Defender ATP, Azure Active Directory Identity Protection, Azure Information Protection (preview) and Cloud App Security. All of these security tools are now emitting security events through the Microsoft Graph Security APIs. In addition, Microsoft is planning on including support for Microsoft Intune, Office 365, Azure Advanced Threat Protection and partner solutions. All of these tools provide intelligent security solutions that reduce your risk of breaches or the impact of a breach if an organization invests the resources to take advantage of what these tools provide.
