This past year has put unprecedented strain on security teams, and many are preparing to “return to normal” with a new view of what it will take to protect their organizations.

What’s new: Incident Team – collaborate in Microsoft Teams – Microsoft Tech Community

The modern SOC runs on Microsoft Teams

Over the past year, as working from home became the new normal, the role of digital collaboration in SOC processes grew for many organizations. With analysts no longer having the convenience of being able to walk over to the next office to collaborate on incidents, they instead find themselves connecting over chat, email, or video.

The soaring success of Microsoft Teams and the new challenges of remote work made Teams a tool of choice for many of our customers – which led Azure Sentinel to come up with Microsoft Teams collaboration.
