According to a recent Ponemon Institute study,* the average cost of a data breach has risen to $4 million, with costs incurred for litigation, brand or reputation damage, lost sales and in some cases—complete business closure. Staying ahead of threats has never been more important.
Office 365 Threat Intelligence, now generally available, provides:
– Interactive tools to analyze prevalence and severity of threats in near real-time
– Real-time and customizable threat alert notifications
– Remediation capabilities for suspicious content
– Expansion of Management API to include threat details—enabling integration with SIEM solutions
To provide actionable insights on global attack trends, Threat Intelligence leverages the Microsoft Intelligent Security Graph, which analyzes billions of data points from Microsoft global data centers, Office clients, email, user authentications, signals from our Windows and Azure ecosystems and other incidents that impact the Office 365 ecosystem.
It provides information about malware families, both inside and outside your organization, including breach information with details down to the actual lines of code that are used for certain types of malware. Threat Intelligence also integrates seamlessly with other Office 365 security features, like Exchange Online Protection and ATP—providing you an analysis that includes the top targeted users, malware frequency and security recommendations related to your business.
