DOWNLOAD: The Total Economic Impact™ Of Microsoft Azure Sentinel (November 2020)

imageMicrosoft commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Azure Sentinel. 1 The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of Azure Sentinel on their organizations. Azure Sentinel reduces SIEM costs at scale, simplifies SIEM management, and improves the efficiency and effectiveness of security operation center (SOC) teams.

To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with this investment, Forrester interviewed four customers using Azure Sentinel. For the purposes of this study, Forrester aggregated the experiences of the interviewed customers and combined the results into a single composite organization.

Prior to using Azure Sentinel, interviewed customers used on-premises SIEM solutions utilizing and maintaining multiple sites and servers, or they used internal, custom-built solutions managed by a managed service provider (MSP) to replicate SIEM infrastructure. However, prior attempts yielded limited success, with customers unable to scale these laborintensive solutions in cost-effective ways, and they invested significant resources in maintenance activities and investigating false positives.

After the investment in Azure Sentinel, the customers were able to benefit from the cloud-native SIEM infrastructure that Azure Sentinel provides, saving costs and enabling their SOC teams to detect and investigate threats more effectively. Key results from the investment include increased SOC team efficiency including reduced MTTR, avoided legacy SIEM costs, improved management efficiencies, and a reduced time to deploy and configure with Azure Sentinel.
