Secureworks announced a new partnership with Microsoft that will improve the detection of advanced cyber attacks across endpoints, networks, cloud and business systems. Secureworks and Microsoft are providing seamless integration of threat intelligence so mutual customers get better protection from advanced threats without having to deploy yet another agent.
The company is doing a good job partnering with the major tech players.
This past May we broke the news the Dell Unified Workspace integrates solutions across Dell devices and services, VMware and Secureworks to help businesses ease major end-user computing pain points and focus on transformative initiatives
Getting back to today… Secureworks’ SaaS application, Red Cloak Threat Detection & Response (TDR), will ingest raw telemetry from the Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) platform, further enriching the diverse data that fuels Red Cloak TDR advanced analytics. Microsoft Defender ATP customers will in turn benefit from a wider threat vector lens because of the deep threat intelligence of Secureworks, enhanced by the company’s visibility across a wide variety of endpoint, network, cloud and business systems in thousands of customer environments worldwide.
Customers can choose to manage the Red Cloak TDR SaaS application in-house or go with a managed services option that provides additional support for threat hunting and incident response.
“Secureworks is thrilled to work with Microsoft on this development effort,” said Wendy Thomas, Chief Product Officer at Secureworks. “Pairing Microsoft’s unique optics across the Windows ecosystem with Secureworks’ advanced analytics and investigative workflows will empower our joint customers to rid their environments of hard-to-detect threats that other security analytics cannot identify.”
Moti Gindi, General Manager, Windows Cyber Defense, Microsoft said, “Partnering with Secureworks, a Microsoft Silver Partner and a recognized leader in managed security services, opens new value to Microsoft Defender ATP customers interested in a managed threat detection and response service from a top player in the market.”
Red Cloak TDR uses a host of innovative detectors that rely on a variety of machine learning, deep learning and behavioral techniques. Working in combination, the detectors find important clues that together identify true malicious behavior. The cloud-native software also streamlines investigations with intuitive workflows and automation so analysts can focus on critical priorities. Applied threat intelligence and incident response experience help the analytics keep pace with emerging threats.
Microsoft Defender ATP uses intelligence built into Windows 10, including endpoint behavioral sensors, cloud security analytics and threat intelligence to help enterprise networks prevent, detect, investigate and respond to advanced threats.
We are impressed with this collaboration because it allows customers to gain from increased cybersecurity analysis depth without the need for yet another agent which could cause configuration or potentially other issues.
