Technology backed by expertise

Critical Start integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Defender for Servers, ingesting alerts into our Cyber Operations Risk & Response™ platform. Our proprietary Trusted Behavior Registry® (TBR®) auto-resolves up to 99% of alerts, reducing noise. Alerts not identified by the TBR are escalated to our rigorously trained Risk & Security Operations Center (RSOC) analysts, who take response actions based on business criticality. And you’ll never miss a notification with the ability to triage and contain attacks anytime, from anywhere, with our MOBILESOC® app. We can take response actions on your behalf and will remain at your side until remediation is complete.

Consistent and reliable protection

Automatic monitoring of servers without manual intervention or configuration ensures consistent and reliable protection across all servers and helps ensure a robust security posture across rapidly changing server environments.  

Security is enhanced through integration with additional Critical Start services for Microsoft Security, simplifying threat protection across different domains and reducing the burden on security teams.
