Security teams working on security operations

 

Security teams today are inundated with alerts and information from a growing number of siloed point solutions. Furthermore, manual processes and cross-team handoffs hinder the security team’s ability to efficiently respond to attacks.

To help solve this challenge, ServiceNow® has developed an integration to connect with different Microsoft security technologies like Azure Sentinel, Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection, Azure Advanced Threat Protection, and more via Microsoft Graph. This enables customers to bring rich insights from Azure Sentinel and other Microsoft products into ServiceNow Security Operations. Customers can manage and respond to security incidents centrally from within the Now Platform®.

 

Streamlining security incident creation

With this integration using the Microsoft Graph Security API, security alerts will be ingested into ServiceNow Security Operations to automatically create security incidents in ServiceNow Security Incident Response. 

Alert Ingestion profiles ensure comprehensive mapping of details in the alert to Security Incident artifacts and trigger playbooks in ServiceNow to orchestrate,  triage, investigate and response actions.

This automation of responses to alerts enables quality and consistency of security investigations and scales security incident teams.

Applying the power of the Now Platform® Configuration Management Database (CMDB) to map threats, security incidents, and vulnerabilities to business services and IT infrastructure, to ServiceNow Security Operations enables prioritization and risk scoring based on business impact, allowing security teams to focus on what is most critical to their business.

Using built-in workflows, ServiceNow routes incidents to the correct personnel or response tools to contain, mitigate or remediate threats. Post-incident reporting, customizable dashboards and metrics help teams gain insights into process workings and drives continuous improvement of the overall security profile.

The Microsoft Graph Security API is an intermediary service (or broker) that provides a single programmatic interface to connect multiple security providers (Native to Microsoft as well as ServiceNow Partners). Microsoft Azure Sentinel is a scalable, cloud-native, security information event management (SIEM) and security orchestration automated response (SOAR) solution. Discover other Microsoft security products included with this single integration with the Microsoft Graph Security API.
