Security is recognized as a key component in running an enterprise, however some organizations might not have the capacity or expertise to have a dedicated security operations team to manage the security of their endpoints and network, others may want to have a second set of eyes to review alerts in their network.

To address this demand, managed security service providers (MSSP) offer to deliver managed detection and response (MDR) services on top of Microsoft Defender ATP.

Microsoft Defender ATP adds support for this scenario and to allow MSSPs to take the following actions:

  • Get access to MSSP customer's Microsoft Defender Security Center portal
  • Get email notifications, and
  • Fetch alerts through security information and event management (SIEM) tools
