Throughout the organization, Microsoft Sentinel provides threat intelligence and intelligent security analytics. You may obtain a single solution for threat visibility, proactive hunting, attack detection, and threat response with Microsoft Sentinel.

Microsoft Sentinel provides an overview of the entire organization, reducing anxiety caused by increasingly complex attacks, a spike in alert volumes, and extended resolution times.

The Azure Sentinel is the Azure platform-based scalable security information and event management (SIEM) and security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) software for Microsoft Cloud-native security. Information gathering, risk identification, investigation, and resolution are all possible with Microsoft Azure Sentinel.

Microsoft Azure Sentinel operates in accordance with these four security operational areas to protect your company from threats:

·       Collect - collects security information from all parts of the network architecture of your company, including cloud-based and on-premises apps, users, and devices.

·       Detect - uses analytics and threat intelligence to identify risks, reducing false positives and enabling the identification of previously undiscovered dangers.

·       Investigate - makes use of artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies to investigate potentially dangerous activity.

·       Respond - enables proactive, adaptable automation of routine security tasks so that incidents can be handled swiftly.
