Customers exploring threat intelligence indicators in their cloud workloads today face challenges understanding, aggregating, and actioning data across multiple sources. Threat intelligence is an advanced cybersecurity discipline requiring detailed knowledge of identifying and responding to an attacker based on observation of indicators in various stages of the attack cycle. Azure Sentinel is a cloud native SIEM solution that allows customers to import threat intelligence data from various places such as paid threat feeds, open-source feeds, and threat intelligence sharing communities. Azure Sentinel supports open-source standards to bring in feeds from Threat Intelligence Platforms (TIPs) across STIX & TAXII. Microsoft has released the next evolution of threat hunting capabilities in the Azure Sentinel Threat Intelligence Workbook.
Azure Sentinel: Threat Intelligence Workbook
Azure Sentinel Threat Intelligence is based in ingestion of threat indicators such as IP addresses, domains, URLs, email senders, and file hashes. This provides a starting point for building threat intelligence programs which require the ability to both ingest and correlate threat data across cloud workloads. This offering provides a free text search to hunt for IPs, hash, emails etc. across 50+ Microsoft telemetry components. There are advanced correlations for AI/ML, UEBA, and geospatial location of threat sources.
There are several use cases for the Azure Sentinel Threat Intelligence Workbook depending on user roles and requirements. Common use cases include threat hunting, developing alerting, identifying security weaknesses, conducting assessments with custom reporting, time filtering, subscription filtering, workspace filtering, and guides. The workbook is organized into three sections:
Indicators Ingestion: Evaluate indicators onboarded, threat feeds, and confidence ratings.
Threat Detection & Hunting: Free text search indicators across your cloud workloads.
Observed Threats: Analyze threats by geolocation, threat group, assets targeted and more.
Ingest, analyze, hunt for indicators within workloads
Free text search to hunt for IPs, hash, emails etc. across 50+ Microsoft telemetry components
Advanced correlations for AI/ML, UEBA, and geospatial location of threats
