Microsoft brings OpenAI to cybersecurity

Microsoft launched private previews of a next generation cybersecurity tool with access to OpenAI models.

The company says its aim is to amplify the capabilities of security teams by summarizing and making sense of threat intelligence, helping defenders see through the noise of web traffic and identify malicious activity.

Microsoft Security Copilot correlates input from the company’s vast threat intelligence footprint with expertise from security professionals and other tools, including Microsoft Security products, such as Microsoft Sentinel and Microsoft Defender.

“Today the odds remain stacked against cybersecurity professionals. Too often, they fight an asymmetric battle against relentless and sophisticated attackers,” said Vasu Jakkal, corporate vice president, Microsoft Security. “With Security Copilot, we are shifting the balance of power into our favor. Security Copilot is the first and only generative AI security product enabling defenders to move at the speed and scale of AI.”

“Advancing the state of security requires both people and technology — human ingenuity paired with the most advanced tools that help apply human expertise at speed and scale,” said Charlie Bell, executive vice president, Microsoft Security. “With Security Copilot we are building a future where every defender is empowered with the tools and technologies necessary to make the world a safer place.”
