Azure Sentinel + Interlink's Energize Workshop Offering

Azure-Sentinel-Energize-Workshop-v3

Jump-start your security defenses with a cloud-native, scalable, threat intelligence (SIEM) solution!
_______________________________

Overview of Azure Sentinel

Azure Sentinel delivers intelligent security analytics and threat intelligence across the enterprise, providing a single solution for alert detection, threat visibility, proactive hunting, and threat response. Sentinel brings compliance to organizations through connecting Office 365 logs, especially when researching events that happened in the past, like previous behavior of a former employee or trying to determine access points that hackers may have used for entry while the default is that the log is only kept for 90 days. This is very limiting when a security breach occurs, or organizations would like to keep logs for more than 90 days. Connecting Office 365 logs to Azure Sentinel enables you to view and analyze this data in your workbooks, query it to create custom alerts, and incorporate it to improve your investigation process, giving you more insight into your Office 365 security.

Windows Virtual Desktop on Azure Now Available

windows-virtual-desktop-on-azure

Recently, Microsoft announced Windows Virtual Desktop’s move from public preview to general availability worldwide.

Read on to learn more, and how it applies and benefits you!
__________________________________________________________________________

What is Windows Virtual Desktop?

Windows Virtual Desktop is a comprehensive desktop and app virtualization service running in the cloud. It’s the only virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) that delivers simplified management, multi-session Windows 10, optimizations for Office 365 ProPlus, and support for Remote Desktop Services (RDS) environments. Multi-session Windows 10 allows multiple concurrent users to connect – meaning that Windows 10 may be used as a remote desktop session host server. In contrast, it was previously only available when using a Windows Server operating system. Organizations are now able to virtualize Office 365 ProPlus and optimize it to run in multi-user sessions. Additionally, manage your environment using built-in delegated access to assign roles and collect diagnostics to understand various configuration or user errors – and use Azure’s diagnostics service to troubleshoot errors.

Then they also gave guidance to their sales teams not to discount Azure until the customer commitment was in the millions. So, it is critical to take advantage of these programmatic discounts to get the best deal possible.
