Cloud SIEM for Microsoft Office 365

Email services and productivity tools such as Microsoft Office 365 are often targeted due to the amount of sensitive information stored in these systems, but also because they can be a gateway to other systems through password resets using email.


Blumira integrates with Microsoft Office 365 productivity suite to stream Office 365 security event logs and alerts to the Blumira service for threat detection and actionable response. Blumira protects Microsoft Office 365 productivity suite by streaming O365 security events, logs, and alerts to the Blumira service which we then apply threat intelligence on to automatically detect suspected threats and deliver an actionable response.
