Fine-tuning your Microsoft Sentinel™ platform means a stronger security profile, fewer manual tasks, reduced alert “noise” and an empowered security team. Here are six ways to optimize the platform once you’ve deployed and begun to ingest logs.
Make sure logs are forwarding correctly and that your VAR log directory is not at or beyond capacity. Over time, look back at your ingestion rates to forecast your needs more accurately.
Top priorities for improving cybersecurity:
Out-of-the-box rules may not be properly aligned to your needs. Use the Watchlist feature to bake queries into analytics rules and reduce false positives and alert fatigue.
SOC teams get an average of 4,484 alerts per day and spend nearly 3 hours daily on manual triage.
Establish a baseline for thresholds, running frequency and other settings by using Azure® Lighthouse to monitor multiple Azure tenants and manage workspaces in a single location.
SIEM stands for Security Information and Event Management.
SOAR stands for Security Orchestration Automation and Response.
The Microsoft® Sentinel platform has alerts with default frequencies that may not work for your organization. Fine-tune your analytic rules to minimize non-urgent alerts and make your team more efficient.
Analysts are unable to deal with 67% of alerts received, with 83% reporting alerts are false positives.
From automation storage per compliance and retention requirements, to controlling access based on user behavior, Microsoft Sentinel can support a wide range of automation use cases.
39% agree more AI and automation throughout tool sets will provide the biggest opportunity to improve threat response time.
Keep your eyes out for new ways to leverage Microsoft Sentinel. Bring Your Own Machine Learning (BYO ML) and advanced visualization are a couple of areas to look into.
63% surveyed plan to increase or maintain AI and machine learning spending in 2023.
