Microsoft Defender Suite

Microsoft Defender is a comprehensive XDR suite of security solutions that protects devices, data and identity from a variety of threats.

It includes features such as antivirus, firewall, device encryption, identity protection and cloud security.

Microsoft Defender solutions can be divided into two groups: Microsoft Defender XDR (for Microsoft 365) and Microsoft Defender for Cloud. XDR stands for comprehensive detection and response, while MDR stands for managed detection and response.

The benefits of Microsoft Defender Suite

  • Integration and management of security from one central environment: One central view of all information about detections, affected assets, automated actions performed and related evidence in one queue and one pane in Microsoft Defender portal.
  • Automated threat response: Critical threat information is shared in real time between Microsoft Defender XDR products to help stop the progress of an attack.
  • Self-recovery for compromised devices, user identities and mailboxes - Microsoft Defender XDR uses AI-driven automatic actions and playbooks to restore compromised assets to safety. Microsoft Defender XDR leverages the automatic recovery capabilities of suite products to ensure that all affected assets related to an incident are automatically recovered where possible.

Microsoft Defender XDR (Microsoft 365)

Microsoft provides comprehensive threat detection and remediation for cloud and on-premises apps from Microsoft and third parties and provides centralization of signals for analysis and threat detection and response. The building blocks are Microsoft Defender 365, Microsoft Defender for Cloud and Microsoft Sentinel.

Microsoft 365 Defender is a bundled enterprise pre- and post-attack defense package that coordinates detection, prevention, investigation and response for endpoints, identities, email and applications to provide integrated protection against advanced attacks.

An overview of the various Microsoft 365 Defender products and solutions that Microsoft Defender XDR coordinates with:

  • Microsoft Defender for Endpoints (MDE).
  • Microsoft Defender for Office 365 (MDO)
  • Microsoft Defender for Identity (MDI).
  • Microsoft Entra Identity Protection (MEIP).
  • Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps (MDCA)
  • Microsoft Sentinel (only possible when taking MDR)

These services can be purchased separately or as included with MDR for Microsoft 365 Defender.

Microsoft Defender XDR contributes to a strong Zero Trust strategy and architecture by providing comprehensive detection and response. Microsoft 365 Defender works with other Microsoft comprehensive detection and response (XDR) tools and can also be integrated with Microsoft Sentinel. Security Center is a cloud security posture management solution and is used as a foundation used by Valid. Microsoft Sentinel services can be purchased as an additional service.

Microsoft Defender for Cloud

Microsoft is positioning Defender for Cloud as a solution for Security Posture Management (CSPM) and Cloud Workload Protection Platform (CWPP). CSPM enables organizations to assess their cloud infrastructure to ensure compliance with industry regulations and identify security vulnerabilities in their cloud workloads. CWPP allows organizations to assess the risks of their cloud workloads and detect threats to their servers (Infrastructure as a Service [IaaS]), containers, databases (Platform as a Service [PaaS]) and storage. It also enables organizations to identify and fix misconfigurations with recommendations for security best practices.

Microsoft Defender for Cloud is advanced, intelligent protection of Azure and hybrid resources and workloads. Microsoft Sentinel is a cloud-native solution for SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) and SOAR (Security Orchestration Automated Response) that provides intelligent security analytics for your entire organization, powered by AI, based on information from decades of Microsoft experience. These services can be purchased as additional services.

Managed Detection and Response (MDR).

In addition to the XDR Services, the optional module Managed Detection and Response (MDR) can be purchased. Managed Detection and Response (MDR) is a service that provides a range of outsourced capabilities to deliver 24/7/365 surveillance and detection, proactive threat detection, alert prioritization, correlated data analysis, managed threat investigation and remediation. MDR is often seen as an in-house Security Operations Center (SOC) alternative or SOC-as-a-service. It combines a human element of highly trained experts with highly advanced IT security technology.
