Evolving from Microsoft Defender for Endpoint to XDR

event Wednesday, 23 June 2021

Extended Detection and Response (XDR) has become one of the most impactful technologies in the past year. The rapid acceleration of digital transformation initiatives, and their security implications, has impacted organisations of all sizes and industries.

This session will help you leverage Microsoft Azure Sentinel and Microsoft 365 Defender to detect and analyse threats across your environment – in applications, endpoints, identities, mailboxes, and data – no matter what domain or device they traverse. Azure Defender can also do this for cloud and hybrid infrastructure.
