Microsoft Starts Using AI for Enterprise Security


New security products appear at the Ignite 2018 IT summit

At Ignite 2018, Microsoft’s annual IT summit, the company announced a slew of products and services focused on security, AI, and machine learning.

“In this era of the intelligent cloud and intelligent edge, businesses in every industry are looking for a trusted partner to help them transform,” said Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft. “We are pushing the bounds in AI, edge computing, and IoT, while providing end-to-end security to empower every organization to build its own digital capability and thrive in this new era.”

One of the major announcements was the Microsoft Secure Score, which assesses Microsoft 365 customer environments and makes recommendations to reduce breaches. When Microsoft Secure Score is combined with Microsoft Authenticator, enterprise customers get the capability to offer secure sign-on to workers with features like password-free login.

Another security-focused service announced at the event is Microsoft Threat Protection a tool for the Microsoft 365 environment that brings together advanced threat protection and auto-remediation across email, PCs, identities, and infrastructure.

According to Microsoft, the service uses AI and human research to speed up investigations to eliminate threats faster, saving thousands of hours for overstretched security teams.

The company also announced a public preview of Azure confidential computing, which turns Azure into a secure platform for protecting the confidentiality and integrity of data in use.
