Microsoft Connects Cloud, Data Center, IoT Security

February 20, 2020 / Jessica Lyons Hardcastle

Microsoft today made available Microsoft Threat Protection — nearly 18 months after first announcing the threat-hunting service — and its Azure Sentinel connector for IoT. The products use artificial intelligence (AI) to streamline threat hunting and improve security across customers’ clouds, data centers, endpoints, and IoT devices.The company first announced Microsoft Threat Protection in September 2018. It’s continued to add capabilities almost monthly, but it hasn’t made the service generally available until now. The threat protection service proactively hunts for threats across users, email, applications, and endpoints including Mac and Linux. It then uses artificial intelligence (AI) and automation to bring together alerts and take action.
