Written By David Shefter And Presented By Charles Leaver


It’s a fantastic plan: Microsoft has actually developed a mechanism for third-party security companies, like Ziften, to cooperate to better secure our customers. Everybody wins with the new Microsoft Intelligent Security Association, revealed very recently – and we delighted to be an establishing member and included in the launch. Congratulations to Microsoft!

Sharing of Security Intelligence

One of the most amazing tasks coming out of Microsoft has actually been the new Microsoft Intelligent Security Graph, a risk intelligence engine developed with machine learning. The Intelligent Security Graph forms the foundation of the brand-new association – and the foundation of a great deal of brand-new chances for development.

As Microsoft states, “At the present time, with the tremendous computing advantages afforded by the cloud, the Machine learning and Artificial Intelligence is discovering new ways to utilize its rich analytics engines and by using a mix of automated and manual processes, machine learning and human professionals, we have the ability to produce an intelligent security graph that develops from itself and develops in real time, reducing our collective time to find and react to brand-new occurrences.”

The requirement for much better, more intelligent, security is huge, which is why we’re thrilled to be a founding member of the brand-new association.

Brad Anderson, Corporate Vice President at Microsoft, Enterprise Mobility + Security, recently composed, “Roughly 96% of all malware is polymorphic – which means that it is only experienced by a single user and device prior to being changed with yet another malware version. This is because in many cases malware is caught almost as quick as it’s developed, so malware developers continuously develop to try and remain ahead. Data like this reinforces how important it is to have security options in place that are as agile and ingenious as the attacks.”

Endpoint Detection and Response that is Advanced

And that brings us to the type of advanced endpoint detection and response (EDR) that Ziften provides to desktops, servers, and cloud assets – providing the organization distinct all-the-time visibility and control for any asset, anywhere. No one provides the functionality you’ll find in Ziften’s Zenith security platform.

That’s where the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association shines. At the end of the day, even the very best defenses may be breached, and security groups should respond faster and more aggressively to make sure the security of their data and systems.

Ziften and Microsoft are providing completely integrated hazard protection that covers customers’ endpoints – meaning customer devices, servers, and the cloud – with a structure of shared intelligence and the power of the cloud to transform monitoring of enterprise systems.

What Microsoft is Saying

“The Intelligent Security Association enhances cooperation from leading sources to protect clients,” said Microsoft. “Having actually currently accomplished strong customer momentum with our integrated Ziften and Microsoft Windows Defender ATP service, customers stand to additionally gain from continued collaboration.”

In addition, “Continued integration and intelligence sharing within the context of the Microsoft Intelligent Security Graph allows joint clients to more quickly and accurately identify, examine and respond to attacks throughout their whole endpoint and cloud base.”

What Ziften is Saying

Chuck Leaver, Ziften CEO, is informing everybody that our founding membership in the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association is a substantial win for our joint clients and prospects – and it brings together everybody in the Microsoft universe and beyond (note that Ziften’s Mac and Linux solutions are likewise part of the Microsoft collaboration). “As security vendors, all of us recognize the requirement to work together and collaborate to protect our customers and their staff members. Kudos to Microsoft for leading this market effort,” Chuck stated.

The result: Better security for our clients, and tighter integration and more development in the industry. It’s a genuine win for everybody. Apart from the hackers, of course. They will lose. No apologies guys.
