AttackIQ automates the evaluation of Microsoft Defender ATP - Help Net Security

AttackIQ, a leader in the continuous security validation market to help organizations achieve cyber resiliency, announced the integration of its AttackIQ Platform with Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) to help joint customers and prospects validate the configuration and security coverage provided by the most widely deployed operating system in the world.


In addition to the integration, AttackIQ is helping to validate Microsoft Defender ATP in Microsoft’s pre-sales engagements on account of AttackIQ’s differentiated open platform, easy to use interface, and alignment with MITRE, a nonprofit organization who has established a standard knowledge base of adversary tactics and techniques in its ATT&CK Framework.


Security teams can now use AttackIQ to run production emulation attack scenarios to validate that Microsoft Defender ATP is configured properly to detect and prevent malicious post-breach activity in an automated and continuous way.


Validating security controls has been notoriously problematic for organizations, given the complexity of configuration options. AttackIQ and Microsoft have developed an effective and quick test that allows you to validate your Microsoft Defender ATP deployment in a matter of minutes.


“AttackIQ and Microsoft address key concerns in deploying any security technology: is it configured properly, and is it catching the latest known threats? Until now, it was mostly a game of guesswork to determine what could actually be detected and prevented. With the robust integration we’ve built with Microsoft, security teams can gain immediate visibility into current and ongoing status of their Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) configuration to quickly remediate any gaps that might exist,” said Chief Commercial Officer at AttackIQ, Carl Wright.
