AttackIQ Integrates Platform with Microsoft Defender ATP
AttackIQ has integrated its platform with Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), allowing security teams to run production emulation attack scenarios to validate that ATP is configured properly to detect and prevent malicious post-breach activity in an automated and continuous way.
Organizations that meet the minimum requirements for ATP can install AttackIQ’s sensors in their environment, and run and schedule on-demand assessments covering threat actors such as APT3 and APT29, in addition to standard endpoint detection and response (EDR) attacks. All results show up in the dashboard and reports in an easy-to-digest format for CISOs to SOC analysts.
“Microsoft has been working with partners around the world through the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA) program to deliver innovative integrations that enhance enterprise security,” said Moti Gindi, Microsoft’s general manager of Windows Cyber Defense. “The integration of AttackIQ Platform with Microsoft Defender ATP helps the security teams of our mutual customers to validate and optimize the effectiveness of Microsoft Defender ATP detection, investigation and response capabilities in their network.”
