Happy Friday everyone!
And welcome to all the new members this week! I’m not sure what’s been happening, but it’s been great to see the newsletter subscriber count skyrocket in the last couple months. And, in addition to the inbox subscribers, there’s been plenty of additional readership in all the places this newsletter is also available to read.
So, welcome! And thanks to all those that have been true believers throughout our journey.
As I noted last week, this will be my last newsletter for a couple weeks as I take my entire family to a beach vacation. But you’re in great hands as Andrea Fisher
will be carrying on my stead.
We have a couple YAMS (yet another Microsoft survey) this week. If this is something that interests you, please take a couple minutes to supply your thoughts.
Survey 1: Protect your Linux machines with Defender for Cloud’s integrated EDR solution
The Microsoft Defender for Cloud (MDC) product team would like to better understand your current experience using MDC.
More specifically, we would like to gain more knowledge about how you secure your Linux servers onboarded to MDC.
Survey 2: Agentless Secrets Scanning
Internet-facing workloads may contain unprotected credentials and secrets. Threat actors use these to move laterally across networks, searching for sensitive data and ways to damage critical information systems. Security teams need to locate secrets hosted in the cloud and mitigate the resulting risks.
This survey is intended to help us understand how you are currently discovering cloud-hosted secrets today, and how we can better help you protect your organization from the lateral movement risk.
And, with that:
- I’ll leave you to the rest of the contents of this week’s newsletter.
- I’ll leave you in the awesome hands of Andrea, and…
- I’ll leave you. (I’ll be back from vacation on September 19th).
P.S. You’ll probably still find me puttering around on Twitter
. Just don’t expect me to be as quick with my responses as normal.
