MDR & Microsoft Security - The Powers of Microsoft E5

About the Episode

Over the past two years, the transition to remote work has companies shifting their on-premise infrastructure to the cloud, with many organizations making an investment in Microsoft 365 E5.

Cybersecurity leaders must understand what the investment includes to fully leverage the Microsoft tool stack and determine if their organization can operationalize their response capabilities in-house or if they need to engage an external Managed Detection and Response (MDR) provider.

In this Cybercrime Magazine podcast episode with host Hillarie McClure, Kurtis Armour, VP, Product Management at eSentire and Patrick Arnone discuss why companies are choosing Microsoft’s cybersecurity offerings, specifically Microsoft 365 E5.
