Microsoft Security Copilot – Paramount is excited about the most awaited Generative AI for Cyber Security

With Artificial Intelligence taking over the technology landscape, hackers are not left behind. Cyber threats are increasing at an alarming rate and becoming sophisticated. It is quite challenging for the traditional Security Operations Centre (SOC) to cope with the speed of cyber-attacks.

According to reports, current organization challenges are - organizations use an average of 80 separate security tools to manage their environment indicating fragmentation, in the US alone there is a shortage of resources with 3.4M job openings in cyber security space and 28% of the business leaders are concerned about data and IP loss due to improper use of AI. This clearly calls for a paradigm shift in the security landscape.

To meet the changing landscape of cyber security threats, organizations are now compelled to equip themselves with an agile technology – that addresses the speed of the changing threat landscape, multiple security tools in the organizations, and specific tool set knowledge.

We are thrilled to leverage Security Copilot for our customers which can significantly optimize the human intervention for the most complex deep analysis with a little or no cyber security skills using the natural language.

What is Security Copilot from Microsoft?

Security Copilot, an AI cybersecurity product will empower the organization to defend at machine speed, simplify the complex, collaborate better, and help catch what may have been missed given the security fragmentation and talent shortage in an organization.

Security Copilot enables security professionals to respond to cyber threats quickly, process signals at machine speed, and assess risk exposure in minutes. This enables security analysts in the cyber defense center to do deep investigations and respond to incidents much faster than a traditional SOC.

It is an end-to-end security cloud and platform that offers leading capabilities that span security, compliance, identity, device management, and privacy.

Security Copilot is the only security AI product that combines a specialized language model with security-specific capabilities from Microsoft. These capabilities incorporate a growing set of security-specific skills informed by Microsoft’s unique global threat intelligence and more than 65 trillion daily signals.

How Customers Benefit from Security Copilot

Turnaround time for incident response can be drastically improved: Our SOC analysts working for various customers today spend an average of 2 hours to drill down security incidents and collect threat actor activities, relevant evidence & reports. This goes beyond certain complex incidents. This time goes down from hours to minutes when Copilot is available with the analysts.

Workforce optimization: A significant portion of SOC analyst workforce can be reduced or can be leveraged for other cyber security activities.

Prevent Attacks from lateral movement quickly and reduce the attack surface: With faster detection & response, we can reduce the attack surface significantly by containing the compromised asset to the minimum possible & thereby protect organization’s critical assets & data.

Security Copilot Integrated to existing tools

The Security Copilot is integrated with the existing product experiences and workflow across Microsoft Defender, Sentinel, Intune, Entra, Purview, and Priva. Security Copilot uses signals and data from other tools to generate guidance that’s specific to your organization. This helps security professionals to see the full benefit of Security Copilot as they go about their daily work.


Below is the mapping of Security Copilot’s integration for a specific set of use cases:
