As threats become more complex and persistent, alerts increase, and security teams are overwhelmed, Cyber attackers do not discriminate. Small businesses are just as susceptible as large enterprises. But based on our research, almost 60% of small and medium businesses said they didn’t feel equipped to maintain cybersecurity hygiene, citing insufficient resources and lack of specialized security skills.
- What is Microsoft 365 Defender?
Microsoft 365 Defender empowers your organization’s defenders by putting the right tools and intelligence in the hands of the right people. Combine SIEM and XDR to increase efficiency and effectiveness while securing your digital estate.
Microsoft 365 Defender is a unified pre- and post-breach enterprise defense suite that natively coordinates detection, prevention, investigation, and response across endpoints, identities, email, and applications to provide integrated protection against sophisticated attacks.
With the integrated Microsoft 365 Defender solution, security professionals can stitch together the threat signals that each of these products receives and determines the full scope and impact of the threat; how it entered the environment, what it’s affected, and how it’s currently impacting the organization.
Microsoft 365 Defender takes automatic action to prevent or stop the attack and self-heal affected mailboxes, endpoints, and user identities.

3. Why is so important for your organisation to use Microsoft 365 Defender?
We’re living through unprecedented growth of digital interactions. In this boundaryless digital ecosystem, trust between parties needs to be established in real-time. Yet trust is a rare commodity on the internet. In this new world where digital ‘handshakes’ are more common than analogue, identity is fundamental.
As collaboration flows freely across organizational boundaries, it’s more important than ever to keep both your data and people secure and private.
Critical Controls and Auditing your cyber resilience have never been more important.
Misconfigurations, insecure configurations, and weak security controls can expose vulnerabilities in the entire company and lead to data breaches and reputation loss. Cyber attackers do not discriminate – small businesses are just as targeted as large enterprises.
Is important for you to understand that is necessary to invest in security, not infrastructure setup and maintenance and to simplify security operations and speed up threat response with integrated automation and orchestration of common tasks and workflows.
