Achieve Full Microsoft Sentinel Operating Potential

Accelerate return on your Microsoft Sentinel investment with proven Microsoft experience

As IT becomes more strategic, the importance of security grows daily. Security information and event management (SIEM) solutions built for yesterday’s environments struggle to keep pace with today’s challenges—let alone tomorrow’s unimagined risks. That’s why Microsoft developed Microsoft Sentinel, a fully cloud-native SIEM. Microsoft Sentinel delivers illuminating security analytics and threat intelligence across the enterprise, providing a single solution for alert detection, threat visibility, proactive hunting and threat response. Unlock the full potential of Microsoft Sentinel for threat detection and response with Critical Start Managed SIEM and Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services.

Optimize Sentinel for Threat Detection-Specific Use Cases

As a Microsoft Verified Managed XDR partner, we understand the features and benefits of Microsoft Sentinel and how to leverage it as an integral part of a threat detection and response program. We’ve built comprehensive services and solutions for Sentinel, so you can experience the true security outcomes that can be derived from this cloud-native SIEM.

The Critical Start Managed SIEM service together with our MDR service for Microsoft Sentinel provide you with dedicated Microsoft expertise and best practices in planning and roll out, ingest cost optimization, continuous monitoring, and threat detection and response.

Accelerate ROI with Sentinel dashboards, reports and log sources aligned to support your specific security, risk, compliance and audit use cases, and to prove value to your executive team.

Reduce cost by ensuring you are ingesting the right security data to get the most value from your threat-detection use cases.

Improve your detection coverage and security posture with the ability to strategically add new data sources while continuously mapping to the MITRE ATT&CK® Framework to achieve optimal threat detection coverage.
