Facing growing security challenges in a rapidly expanding business

Fujitsu / May 17, 2024

Over the past year, Widget Inc. has aggressively expanded, acquiring multiple companies to enhance its competitive edge in the industry. This rapid growth, however, has not only introduced complex security challenges but has also significantly increased the volume of security alerts. With new processes, diverse networks, and a variety of disparate security technologies now under its umbrella, Widget Inc. and its CISO, Jane, face the daunting task of managing and monitoring these alerts. The sheer number of notifications makes it difficult to discern critical threats from harmless anomalies, complicating their security management efforts with existing resources.

The need for a unified security strategy

As Widget integrates multiple acquisitions, the complexity of their security environment has multiplied, introducing a range of new vulnerabilities and points of attack. In response to these challenges, Jane is considering Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services as a solution. She needs a holistic approach to monitor, identify, and respond to threats across Widget’s expanded Azure environments in real-time. Her goal is to integrate tools like Microsoft Sentinel and the Defender suite to achieve a consolidated view of the threats and enhance the company’s security posture.

Managing true positives and filtering out irrelevant alerts

Fujitsu’s MDR service offers a solution tailored to Jane’s needs. Our Global Delivery Centers provide a seamless setup during initial workshops, helping Jane streamline her security tools, establish effective alert rules, and outline clear incident response processes. Our Infrastructure as Code (IaC) deployment enhances early threat detection capabilities across Azure environments, creating a robust defensive framework right from the start.

Our service seeks to ensure that only true positives reach Jane’s team, significantly reducing the number of incidents they handle daily. Fujitsu analysts work closely with Jane to ensure prompt resolution of major incidents, providing peace of mind and allowing her team to focus on strategic security initiatives rather than constant firefighting.

Beyond traditional SIEM

While Microsoft’s Sentinel provides a robust platform for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), Fujitsu’s integration extends its capabilities. Our approach not only deploys Sentinel rapidly but also optimizes its use by connecting it with various data sources that Jane needs to manage. This approach helps in quickly identifying and resolving security issues, facilitating a more agile response to threats.

Proactive and dynamic security management

The dynamic nature of today’s security landscape demands more than static rule sets. Fujitsu’s strategy involves deploying high-fidelity Microsoft rule templates and enhancing them with our Detection Engineering team’s ongoing threat analysis. This approach not only helps in addressing immediate threats but also in adapting to new vulnerabilities as they emerge. Moreover, Jane has the option to request custom rules, ensuring that the security measures are precisely aligned with Widget’s most pressing concerns.  

Context is crucial

Our MDR service leverages in-house developed Threat Intelligence to enrich threat data, providing deeper insights into each threat’s context and enabling informed decision-making about incident response. This integration of advanced analytics and AI supports automated decision-making processes, significantly accelerating incident response times and improving the overall security posture.
