eSentire MDR for Microsoft

Your Challenges

You're dealing with vendor sprawl and budget constraints

Most organizations have to make sense of alerts from at least a half-dozen or more different security tools. At the same time, many are also re-evaluating IT spend and strategy to adjust to a post-COVID 19 pandemic operating environment.

This has led many organizations to replace legacy tools with Microsoft’s advanced and highly integrated solutions that cover endpoint, email, cloud, identity and more. Microsoft bundles these tools in their enterprise licensing, offering their customers a cost-effective alternative to buying multiple separate security solutions.

Your team lacks the cybersecurity resources to investigate and respond 24/7

Despite being familiar with Microsoft 365 or Microsoft Sentinel, your business may not have the in-house expertise and resources to properly optimize and manage these tools for ongoing threat detection and response.
