Microsoft Security Challenges

  • Lack of Security Visibility – Default built-in Windows Server logging does not always provide full visibility into malicious activity across code behavior and network traffic.
  • Insecure Legacy Settings – Certain Windows and Microsoft default configurations and protocols can result in broadening your attack surface, unless you know how to disable or configure them securely.
  • Logging Complexity – The way that logs flow from Microsoft products to servers on a network isn’t always clear in their documentation, making security monitoring and log collection more difficult.
