The pioneer of managed detection and response (MDR), Red Canary, recently announced partnerships with Microsoft Sentinel and Microsoft Defender for Cloud, allowing Red Canary to detect threats early and stop them faster. The solution is available for Microsoft customers around-the-clock. Microsoft has verified Red Canary MXDR as an MXDR (managed extended detection and response) solution.
As businesses seek defense against the dynamic and complex threat landscape, the MDR industry is expanding at an exponential rate. Red Canary was additionally honored as the 2022 recipient of the Microsoft Security Excellence Awards’ Trailblazer Award for Microsoft Security. The MDR market is expected to generate huge revenue in sales by 2025.
Red Canary gives organizations the depth and field they require to be in line with Microsoft’s security products and strategy, giving them the assurance they need that no attacks will get past their defenses. With the necessary human insight and security know-how from Red Canary, this integration will effectively defend against identity-based threats, enhance cloud security coverage, and execute more of Microsoft’s security features.
Brian Beyer, co-founder and CEO at Red Canary said, “It’s an honor to be one of Microsoft’s first partners with a verified MXDR solution. Security remains front-and-center for Microsoft customers, and now when they adopt new Microsoft security tools they can rest assured that Red Canary will integrate with them to improve defenses and achieve a positive ROI. This expanded integration will ensure that no threats go undetected – no matter how sophisticated or evasive.”
Red Canary MDR can now look into occurrences from Defender for Cloud and Microsoft Sentinel and then head into a customer’s instance to perform additional investigative queries thanks to the company’s enhanced connectors. This will not only enable security personnel to spot threats more quickly but also work more strategically and with less alert fatigue. Additionally, Red Canary improved its interface with Microsoft 365 to develop personalized detections for business email compromise (BEC). To give customers the crucial contextualization of threats in their environments, Red Canary correlates customized detections along with alerts from Microsoft and non-Microsoft security technologies, then unifies all alerts, events, and processes within customers’ threat timelines.
Extra recognition includes:
- To enable joint customers fully enhance their security postures, from proactive threat detection across workloads to incident response, Red Canary MXDR is a Microsoft Verified Managed XDR Solution.
- Red Canary contributed to the creation of Microsoft Security Experts services, which helped thousands of organizations around the world increase security.
“With malicious attacks on the rise, we understand security is front and center for our customers,” says Rob Lefferts, CVP, Modern Protection and SOC, Microsoft. “That is why I am excited to congratulate Red Canary on achieving Microsoft Verified: Managed Extended Detection and Response solution status. Their solution closely integrates with Microsoft 365 Defender and Microsoft Sentinel and has been verified by Microsoft Security engineering to ensure that it provides comprehensive service coverage across the Microsoft Security portfolio.”
