One of the biggest advantages of Microsoft’s Azure Sentinel SIEM is its seamless integration with Azure and Windows solutions, specifically Windows Defender, Microsoft Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) and Microsoft Cloud Security. While it is best
fit for current Microsoft Windows and Azure shops, its Microsoft-centric focus could make it less-suitable for organizations with multi-cloud and hybrid architectures. In this piece, we detail Azure Sentinel’s main feature sets and explains how best
to deploy them to monitor for threats and secure your workloads.
It also offers built-in connectors to the broader security ecosystem for non-Microsoft solutions (e.g., ServiceNow and Okta). However, customers can use common event format, Syslog or REST APIs to connect their data sources with Azure Sentinel, further
broadening its coverage.

Azure Sentinel is a viable SIEM solution if you are a big Microsoft and Azure shop. However, if you have multi-cloud workloads in AWS and GCP, you may struggle to collect and ingest data. We expect the product will improve and become an even strong player
in the SIEM space moving forward.
