Combine Microsoft’s cybersecurity technologies with PwC’s Cyber Operations service to design, build and operate your Threat Detection and Response solution.

Despite increases in cybersecurity spending and awareness, organizations are struggling to keep pace with new threats. The average cost of a data breach is estimated at $4.24m per breach, and over 10% increase year over year. Expanding IT footprints, an emphasis on cloud computing, virtual working model, that has led to increase in threat surface and the need to increase efficiencies further complicate an organization’s ability to detect and respond to threats in a timely manner.
