Microsoft Defender for IoT: 4-Wk POC


Digital transformation and IIoT are driving increased connectivity between IT and OT networks, increasing the attack surface and the risk of cyberattacks on critical infrastructure.

Microsoft Defender for IoT enables IT and OT teams to identify critical vulnerabilities and detect threats using IoT/OT-aware behavioral analytics and machine learning—all without impacting availability or performance.

Microsoft Defender for IoT offers agentless network detection and response (NDR) that is rapidly deployed, works with diverse IoT, OT, and industrial control system (ICS) devices, and interoperates with Microsoft 365 Defender, Microsoft Sentinel, and external security operations center (SOC) tools. Deploy on-premises or via cloud.

In July 2020 ADAPTERA established a cooperation with CYBERX (now a MICROSOFT company) a leader in Cybersecurity solutions for IoT and OT environments in critical infrastructure companies such as Utilities , Oil & gas, Industrial plants , Transport , Telecoms etc.
