Why Microsoft Defender Should be Considered for your Next Security Renewal
Article Date: 2021-03-12
Security has always been an essential part of any IT strategy - from anti-virus to firewalls, ensuring that a company, and its network, users, and devices, is secure, is paramount. Security breaches not only damage infrastructure and leads to downtime but there is also damage to the reputation it can cause.
While we encourage backups and DR to be in place, to mitigate any incidents, a robust first line of defence is vital for each of the three main access routes: Network, Users and Email. The Microsoft Defender Suite of products incorporates each of these elements as part of the Microsoft 365 E5 Security.
Defender for Office 365
Emails are one of the main sources of security breaches, through spam, phishing and malware loaded in links and attachments. Defender for Office 365 provides sandboxing for threats, anti-phishing and automated investigation and response capabilities to secure your Exchange Online environment.
Defender for Identity
Microsoft 365 provides heightened levels of security for email, but user credentials present a significant threat risk to any estate. Defender for Identity mitigates this by employing protected credentials, behaviour monitoring and tracking the lateral movement of malicious attacks.
Defender for Endpoint
Covering both client and server infrastructure, Microsoft Defender for Endpoint, rewarded for its advancements in protection with a spot in the Gartner Magic Quadrant as a Leader, is a next-generation EDR solution that can be tailored specifically to your environment.
