You are here: Home / Services / Microsoft Sentinel Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Service

Our Microsoft Sentinel MDR service is managed and delivered by our Security Operations Centre (SOC), a team of qualified cyber security professionals whose objectives are to detect, investigate and respond to cyber security incidents around the clock every day of the year.

Equipped with Microsoft’s market-leading security technologies, led by Microsoft Sentinel, they monitor the entire suite of the customer’s environments, detect any potential threats and respond rapidly. Together, our dual approach of creative security analysts – who know how cybercriminals think – and world-class automated technology minimises risks across the whole IT landscape.     

We’ll work in partnership with your existing IT and security teams to act as a seamless extension to your organisation’s defences. Although we’re a company of technology experts, we focus on delivering positive results and outcomes and a clear return on investment for your business.  

Against the backdrop of an increasingly hostile and unpredictable digital landscape, the world is facing a severe shortage of qualified cyber security experts and the competition for talent is hot. Organisations who want to build their own SOC or grow an in-house security team need to recruit, train and retain employees as well as invest in the right tools and licences to protect their assets.  

Gartner's perspective

Gartner® says, “MDR services differentiate from traditional remotely delivered SOC services by performing threat mitigation response functions and activities on behalf of the customer (in effect, acting like an extension of the customer’s security team).”

Why we’re a Microsoft-only cyber security company 

Before Quorum Cyber was founded in 2016, we predicted that the cyber security market was about to expand significantly, and we realised that three data giants had decided to take over the market, displacing other specialist companies. Our strategy from day one was to partner with the one we believed would ultimately be the dominant player, Microsoft.  

Since 2016 our Microsoft partnership saw us drive investment in innovation and engineering, consistently taking to market Microsoft-powered cyber security services that were leaps ahead of the competition. We’ve grown a highly-qualified, deeply-experienced team of certified professionals, which gives us a strategic advantage over our competitors.

Microsoft Sentinel FAQs

Microsoft Sentinel is the first cloud-native Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) system produced by a major cloud provider. Here we answer the questions commonly asked by our customers and provide guidance on the security benefits that Microsoft Sentinel can deliver to your organisation.

What is Microsoft Sentinel and how does it work?

Microsoft Sentinel is a cloud-native SIEM platform that gives you an overview of your entire estate’s cyber security posture, allowing users to find and respond to active threats before they cause significant harm.

Will Microsoft Sentinel integrate with my company's existing tools?

Yes, Microsoft Sentinel will fully integrate with your company’s existing toolset, allowing users to connect to, and collect data from, all your company’s sources including users, servers, applications and any devices running on-premises or in the cloud. Microsoft Sentinel integrates with existing business applications, other security products and even custom-built tools.

What are the benefits of a cloud-based SIEM vs on-premises SIEM?

The largest benefit to having a cloud-based SIEM is cost. An on-premises solution is, generally, a very costly endeavour, and this factor is often underestimated when it comes to setting a budget. Aside from the large up-front costs of setting up the on-premises SIEM, there are ongoing costs with regards to updates and maintenance, additional hardware, servers and storage, as well as the SIEM team members’ salaries.

That said, some organisations do still prefer some of the benefits afforded by an on-premises SIEM in comparison to its cloud-based counterpart. The main factor here is security. As the SIEM is an on-site solution, all sensitive company data is completely held on-site and there is nothing sensitive stored in the cloud. This type of solution also gives the organisation complete control over all aspects of the SIEM – it is important to note, however, that this is only really a viable option where there are employees in place with the necessary skills, knowledge and expertise to manage such a complex solution. A cloud-based SIEM comes with a dedicated team of industry professionals who already possess the required levels of knowledge and expertise.

We use Office 365 as our company email, can I monitor this with Microsoft Sentinel?

Yes, the Office 365 activity log connector provides insight into ongoing Office 365 user activities. By configuring Office 365 Connector in Microsoft Sentinel you will get details of operations such as file downloads, access requests sent and details of the user who performed each action.

An administrator account in Office 365 is required to enable this connector.
