Microsoft on Tuesday unveiled Security Copilot in preview, marking its continued push to embed AI-oriented features in an attempt to offer “End-to-end defense at machine speed and scale.”
Powered by OpenAI’s GPT-4 generative AI and its own security-specific model, it’s billed as a security analysis tool that enables cybersecurity analysts to quickly respond to threats, process signals, and assess risk exposure.
To that end, it collates insights and data from various products like Microsoft Sentinel, Defender, and Intune to help security teams better understand their environment; determine if they are susceptible to known vulnerabilities and exploits; identify ongoing attacks their scale, and receive remediation instructions; and summarize incidents.
Users can ask Security Copilot about suspicious user logins over a specific time period, or even employ it to create a PowerPoint presentation outlining an incident and its attack chain.
Security Copilot is the latest AI push from Microsoft, which has been steadily integrating generative AI features into its software offerings over the past two months, including Bing, Edge browser, GitHub, LinkedIn, and Skype.
The development also comes weeks after the tech giant launched Microsoft 365 Copilot, integrating AI capabilities within its suite of productivity and enterprise apps such as Office, Outlook, and Teams.
