What’s new: Microsoft Teams connector in Public Preview

This post has been republished via RSS; it originally appeared at: Azure Sentinel articles.

This installment is part of a broader series to keep you up to date with the latest features in Azure Sentinel. These installments will be bite-sized to enable you to easily digest the new content.

 

Great news! You can now use an in-built connector to connect Microsoft Teams logs to your Azure Sentinel workspace. You may have already been doing this with a custom connector using the Office 365 API but now this functionality is available via an in-built connector in Sentinel.

 

With collaboration software becoming even more critical with the shift in work patterns that has taken place this year, monitoring these systems has become a priority for many organizations. The information that can be ingested using the Microsoft Teams connector includes details of actions such as file downloads, access requests sent, changes to group events, mailbox operations, Teams events (such as chat, team, member, and channel events), as well as the details of the user who performed the actions.

 

Connecting Microsoft Teams logs to Azure Sentinel enables you to view and analyze this data in your workbooks, query it to create custom alerts, and incorporate it to improve your investigation process, giving you more insight into your Office 365 security.
