What is Microsoft Security Copilot? The AI that transforms cybersecurity

Microsoft Security Copilot is the first generative artificial intelligence solution for security, powered by OpenAI's GPT-4 technology, and was released on April 1 of this year.

In today's digital age, cybersecurity is more important than ever. According to Security Ventures, in 2023, a cyberattack will take place every 39 seconds. This, coupled with the countless number of false positives that experts have to review every day, leaves an undersized group of specialists to deal with attackers who use increasingly effective and sophisticated techniques.

The capacity of an IT security team will always be limited by team size and human limitations, such as fatigue, stress, or something as common as making a mistake. Security Copilot increases your defense team's capabilities with its ability to answer questions related to digital security, from the most basic to the most complex. 

What is Microsoft Security Copilot?

Microsoft Security Copilot, the first generative AI for security, allows users to search and receive information about threats in their network using natural language in real time.

It achieves this thanks to OpenAI's LLM (Large Language Model) technology, its specific model with information from several large-scale databases and the more than 78 trillion security signals processed by Microsoft. In addition, Security Copilot continuously learns from the cases in which it participates and can receive feedback from users, which will allow it to be always up-to-date with any new type of danger that may appear in the future. Microsoft also plans to expand its portfolio with different experiences to help users control AI and its risks.

How does Microsoft Security Copilot work?

When the user makes a request, Security Copilot determines the context of the request, executes a plan to analyze and combine the data it has and finally formats it to respond to the request in a natural language for the user in real time in order to deal with any potential threats as quickly as possible. 

Security Copilot also ensures that the user's data is kept private and secure, so it is protected by the best controls and the most comprehensive enterprise compliances.
