Build next-generation security operations with Microsoft Sentinel

Microsoft Sentinel is the scalable, cloud-native, security information and event management (SIEM) solution for automating and streamlining threat identification and response across your enterprise. Now, three leading experts guide you step-by-step through planning, deployment, and operations, helping you use Microsoft Sentinel to escape the complexity and scalability challenges of traditional solutions. Fully updated for the latest enhancements, this edition introduces new use cases for investigation, hunting, automation, and orchestration across your enterprise and all your clouds. The authors clearly introduce each service, concisely explain all new concepts, and present proven best practices for maximizing Microsoft Sentinel's value throughout security operations.

Three of Microsoft's leading security operations experts show how to:

  • Define and validate rules that prevent alert fatigue
  • Use threat intelligence, machine learning, and automation to triage issues and focus on high-value tasks
  • Add context with User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) and Watchlists
  • Hunt sophisticated new threats to disrupt cyber kill chains before you're exploited
  • Enrich incident management and threat hunting with Jupyter notebooks
  • Use Playbooks to automate more incident handling and investigation tasks
  • Create visualizations to spot trends, clarify relationships, and speed decisions
