After releasing its AI-powered Copilot assistant for Office apps, Microsoft has announced Security Copilot, an AI-powered assistant for people who work in cybersecurity. This new assistant is meant to help defenders find security holes and figure out what all the signals and data they see every day mean.
Security Copilot is run by the GPT-4 generative AI from OpenAI and the security-specific model from Microsoft. It looks like a simple prompt box and works like a chatbot. When asked, it can give a summary of all the security incidents in an enterprise.
According to the company, it uses the 65 trillion signals that Microsoft gets daily from its threat intelligence gathering and security-specific skills to help security professionals find threats.
With the help of AI, here’s how Microsoft Security Copilot will strengthen defenders.
Simplify the Complex
Security Copilot makes it possible for defenders to react to security problems in minutes instead of hours or days. It uses natural language to give guidance and context, which makes it faster to figure out what happened and what to do about it. This gives the defenders more time to work on more important things.
Catch what others Miss?
Defenders are given the ability to spot potentially undetected malicious activity and threat indications thanks to Security Copilot. Security Copilot gives real-time prioritized danger alerts and continuously reasons using Microsoft’s global threat information, which gives defenders the upper hand by predicting threat actors’ next moves.
