This Microsoft Security Workshop is designed to orient customers who are interested in purchasing and/or deploying advanced Microsoft Security products.
Designed as a three-day engagement, the Security Workshop enables SoHo to build an assessment intent for the deployment of advanced Microsoft Security workloads. The workshop uses a specialized Threat-Check SKU for identifying real-time threats in a customer environment, resulting in clear next steps and optimal risk mitigation. The workshop is intended to be delivered as a three-day engagement to:
- Understand customers’ security goals and objectives
- Identify security threats using a Microsoft 365 E5 trial
- Provide an overview of the Microsoft Security end-to-end story
- Showcase product capabilities through newly-designed rich demos
- Develop joint plans and recommend next steps
The Microsoft Security Workshop is an engagement that helps customers assess their security landscape and address their most pressing security goals and challenges, providing an immersive experience that brings the Microsoft security vision and capabilities to life.
The standard scope of this part of the engagement includes:
- Deployment of Microsoft 365 trial licenses for Threat Check in the customer tenant.
- Configuration of Microsoft 365 Security tools (Microsoft Threat Protection, Azure Active Directory Identity Protection, Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection, and Microsoft Cloud App Security) to discover threats to customers’ identity, email, and data, as per guidance provided in this document.
- Analysis of cloud applications deployed in the customer environment through the Cloud Discovery part of the Microsoft Cloud App Security and based on either Microsoft Defender ATP or on a one-time manual upload of logs from a single, on-premises perimeter security device, such as a firewall or proxy server.
- Detailed self-assessment of the customers’ security landscape and identification of top priorities, main influences, and opportunities to define the next steps.
- Security customer conversations covering an overview of Microsoft’s vision and security capabilities.
- Demonstration of Microsoft Threat-Protection solutions via key scenarios to help establish product value and key differentiators.
