01:09 — Microsoft has recently announced the integration of Copilot for Security into the Azure Web Application Firewall (WAF) and Azure Firewall.

02:13 — The goal of this integration is to assist security professionals with logging security detections and turning those into actionable insights. There are a few key ways Copilot for Security is assisting Azure WAF:

  • Provides contextual analysis
  • Investigates security threats
  • Delivers explanations in natural language

04:12 — Azure Firewall is intended to intercept and block malicious traffic using an intrusion detection and prevention system (IDPS). However, when analysts need to perform deeper investigations into the threats that Azure firewall catches using this feature, they’ve got to do all this manually.

05:00 — There are three unique areas that Copilot in Azure Firewall can assist:

  • Investigation starts with selecting a specific Azure Firewall to examine the intercepted threat
  • Providing additional context around the threat
  • Correlating threats across different environments

07:02 — In closing, Aaron notes that Copilot is removing “guesswork” that’s involved with manually identifying threats, which is helping security professionals “turn that output into action.”
