Microsoft MSFT announced the release of Security Copilot, a GPT-4 implementation that brings generative artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities to its in-house security suite, and features a host of new visualization and analysis functions.
The security product is aimed at helping cybersecurity professionals identify breaches, threat signals and analyze data, shaped by OpenAI’s ChatGPT-4. Security Copilot will combine the search and natural language reply capabilities of ChatGPT-4 with Microsoft’s threat intelligence capabilities.
Security Copilot enables defenders to move at the speed and scale of AI, and combines the advanced large language model with security-specific models from Microsoft.
The tool can process up to 65 trillion threat signals taken from security tools like Microsoft Sentinel and create a natural-text summary of potentially malicious activity, such as an account compromise.
Microsoft claims that the Security Copilot delivers enterprise-grade security and privacy-compliant experience, and runs on Azure’s hyperscale infrastructure.
Security Copilot, also integrated with end-to-end Microsoft Security products, will expand a growing ecosystem of third-party products.
