Microsoft product integrations

The OOTB Microsoft product and service integrations in the Content Hub span both on-premises and services offered by the Azure cloud platform. While the most popular integrations include ingesting log/alert/incident information from services such as Azure Active Directory and Microsoft 365 Defender, the on-premises services can also be integrated for monitoring via Microsoft Sentinel and include Windows Firewall and Windows Server DNS. The most recent integrations in this space include OOTB solutions for Azure PaaS services such as Azure Batch Account, Azure Cognitive Search, Azure Data Lake, Azure Event Hubs, etc.

 

Domain and Compliance Solutions

Domain and Compliance solutions cater to non-product specific requirements. These could align to a pattern or type of logs that are product agnostic in nature or can help in assessment of posture in accordance with a compliance standard such as UEBA, PCI DSS, etc. The value that Domain – based solutions provide might require that logs data from a different data source are being ingested. For example, the UEBA Essentials solution requires that UEBA and appropriate data sources are pre-enable.
