Why Critical Start?

Security and risk management is critical to the integrity of your brand. That’s why you’ve invested in leading platforms like Microsoft 365 Defender, Microsoft Sentinel, and Microsoft Defender for Endpoint. It’s entirely another thing, to operate, optimize, and maintain those products – especially when the average enterprise security environment includes more than 76 different security tools1, each generating hundreds of alerts that take up hours of a security analyst’s time.

To derive real value from your security investments, a company needs the expertise and methodology to make sense of Microsoft’s cross-enterprise visibility threat detection and auto investigation capabilities to radically reduce alerts and actively respond to threats. That’s where Critical Start is driving the most impact.
