Stopping Active Directory attacks and other post-exploitation behavior with AMSI and machine learning

When attackers successfully breach a target network, their typical next step is to perform reconnaissance of the network, elevate their privileges, and move laterally to reach specific machines or spread as widely as possible. For these activities, attackers often probe the affected network’s Active Directory, which manages domain authentication and permissions for resources. Attackers take

Building Image Classifiers made easy with Azure Custom Vision

By Jaya Mathew, Richin Jain and Pritish Devurkar   In our previous blog, we outlined that Supervised Machine Learning (ML) models need labeled data, but majority of the data collected in the raw format lacks labels. So, the first step before building a ML model would be to get the raw data labeled by domain

Inside Microsoft Threat Protection: Solving cross-domain security incidents through the power of correlation analytics

In theory, a cyberattack can be disrupted at every phase of the attack chain. In reality, however, defense stack boundaries should overlap in order to be effective. When a threat comes via email, for example, even with good security solutions in place, organizations must assume that the threat may slip past email defenses, reach the
