Empowering SaaS Incident Response with Valence and Microsoft Sentinel

As businesses increasingly rely on SaaS applications, their distributed ownership and intricate configurations are inadvertently exposing them to the risk of misconfigurations and devastating breaches. The decentralized nature of SaaS ownership often results in a lack of visibility into critical activities, making it difficult for security teams to effectively detect and respond to threats. Unauthorized access, exploiting human identities and third-party tokens, adds an extra layer of complexity to an already intricate security landscape. This is where the synergy between Valence Security and Microsoft Sentinel comes into play.

A Unified Defense

We all know time is of the essence when it comes to containing breaches. The integration between Valence and Microsoft Sentinel, a cloud native Security information and event management (SIEM) and Security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) platform, not only allows security teams to respond to SaaS threats with unprecedented speed and accuracy, but it delivers critical data and context from Valence’s SaaS Security platform, to enrich existing incident response workflows and minimize the breach risk to begin with.

1. Respond to SaaS Threats

By integrating SaaS risks detected by Valence with Microsoft Sentinel, organizations can create dedicated SaaS security incident response workflows, such as temporarily terminating admin access of users with compromised devices. This proactive approach ensures that potential threats are identified and addressed swiftly, reducing the likelihood of a breach.

2. Proactive Threat Detection

By seamlessly integrating signals from Valence's SaaS Security Platform into Microsoft Sentinel, you not only receive timely notifications of any malicious activities brewing within your SaaS applications but also gain the ability to respond effectively. Leverage the power of Microsoft Sentinel's workflows to orchestrate a precise and swift response, turning potential threats into mere blips on your security radar.

3. Detect Sophisticated Cross-security Attacks

By aggregating SaaS threats with cross-security ecosystem threats from various sources, including endpoints and cloud platforms, organizations can construct in-depth attack analyses. This holistic view enables security teams to identify patterns, correlations, and sophisticated attack vectors that might otherwise go unnoticed, and proactively manage existing vulnerabilities.

By combining Valence's SaaS Security with Microsoft Sentinel, organizations can now fortify their defenses, detect threats more effectively, and respond to SaaS security threats with unparalleled precision.

Now customers can easily discover integrations with Microsoft Sentinel, and others, within the MISA partner catalog.
