Using Microsoft products to help organizations bolster their cybersecurity posture

Staying up to date with security technologies and attack vectors can be a daunting task. Not every IT department has the capability or skillset to deliver full-scale cybersecurity operations. BUI offers its CyberSoC managed service on Microsoft Azure Marketplace to expand IT operations teams with additional cybersecurity capacity, skills, and experience. This collaborative approach to detecting and eradicating attacks helps improve overall security and keep businesses safe.

"Cybersecurity attacks have increased over the last few months, and even though BUI's CyberSoC provides exceptional services and support, the recipe to a successful cybersecurity strategy requires participation and willingness from all parties involved," said Ryan Roseveare, Managing Director, BUI.

Based on Microsoft Azure Sentinel, a cloud-born security information and event management (SIEM) system backed by powerful AI technology, BUI CyberSoC adds visibility, proactive vulnerability detection, and breach traceability and remediation to an organization's cybersecurity strategy. Together with Microsoft Threat Protection, Azure Sentinel enables CyberSoC to collect, detect, investigate, and respond to cybersecurity incidents, providing immediate visibility and protection across all endpoints, on-premises, and cloud technologies.

BUI’s CyberSoC fully managed service on Azure helps organizations improve their security posture and keep their entire IT security estate safe with Microsoft technologies and 24/7 monitoring from BUI’s dedicated cybersecurity team.

“Microsoft Threat Protection helps secure the modern workplace across its entire attack surface, securing identities, endpoints, cloud apps, and infrastructure. Incorporating the signals into Azure Sentinel provides advanced cybersecurity trends, intelligence, and predictions to potential threats.”
