Threat intelligence integration in Azure Sentinel

Azure Sentinel gives you a few different ways to use threat intelligence feeds to enhance your security analysts' ability to detect and prioritize known threats.

You can use one of many available integrated threat intelligence platform (TIP) products, you can connect to TAXII servers to take advantage of any STIX-compatible threat intelligence source, and you can also make use of any custom solutions that can communicate directly with the Microsoft Graph Security tiIndicators API.

You can also connect to threat intelligence sources from playbooks, in order to enrich incidents with TI information that can help direct investigation and response actions.

Tip

If you have multiple workspaces in the same tenant, such as for Managed Service Providers (MSSPs), it may be more cost effective to connect threat indicators only to the centralized workspace.

When you have the same set of threat indicators imported into each separate workspace, you can run cross-workspace queries to aggregate threat indicators across your workspaces. Correlate them within your MSSP incident detection, investigation, and hunting experience.

TAXII threat intelligence feeds

To connect to TAXII threat intelligence feeds, follow the instructions to connect Azure Sentinel to STIX/TAXII threat intelligence feeds, together with the data supplied by each vendor linked below. You may need to contact the vendor directly to obtain the necessary data to use with the connector.
