Organizations today face the continually changing and complicated task of protecting their ever-expanding attack surface from cyber-attacks. The move to the Cloud and remote workspaces has pushed the boundary of their digital ecosystem well beyond their traditional physical network. Data, users, and systems are in multiple locations, creating significant challenges for security operations teams tasked with defending their organizational assets. Information Security personnel need to be equipped with solutions to identify new adversaries and threats like ransomware.
It's now crucial for defenders to have unique visibility across both their organization's attack surface and the threat infrastructure used to target it. In this blog, I will highlight key capabilities in Microsoft Defender for Cloud (MDC) and Microsoft Defender Threat Intelligence (MDTI) that, when used together, enable analysts to quickly understand exposures and equip them with crucial context about threat actors likely to target them.
