KPMG announces the release of a new security offering with Microsoft Azure Sentinel to improve cyber defense capabilities for organizations.
The solution has been designed to help businesses improve their security monitoring and incident response capabilities by combining KPMG’s cybersecurity, incident response and industry experience with Microsoft’s advanced cyber security technologies.
KPMG can help organizations determine the security operations ecosystem that best fits their business requirements and design a security operations transformation program to help meet these requirements.
As part of this transformation program, KPMG supports organizations in integrating Azure Sentinel in their processes and procedures, and can provide custom playbooks or machine learning models to fit their specific needs.
The solution expands KPMG’s portfolio of cybersecurity collaborations with Microsoft, including the data governance, cloud cyber defense, and security maturity assessment offerings.
KPMG enables customers to stay in control of data
The previously released data governance program has been enhanced, and is now focused on data governance capabilities throughout the full lifecycle of data. Starting with design and implementation of conditional access, organizations can gain control on who can access what data, and under what conditions.
Following this, KPMG helps organizations design and implement data classification, both on-premises (using Azure Information Protection) and in the cloud (using cloud app security).
In addition, KPMG enables organizations to remain in control of their data in the cloud by addressing shadow IT using Cloud App Security. The results of this joint offering can help clients manage their data in a way that combines KPMG’s cyber security, data management and industry experience with Microsoft’s technology.
In addition to these new and enhanced service offerings, KPMG works with Microsoft to offer a cyber maturity assessment to help companies identify their current cyber maturity posture, making use of the security check as part of Microsoft’s technology.
