MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota, U.S. — November 16, 2023 — Ascent Solutions today announced its participation in the Microsoft Security Copilot Partner Private Preview. Ascent was selected based on their proven experience with Microsoft Security technologies, willingness to explore and provide feedback on cutting edge functionality, and close relationship with Microsoft.

“In the context of security, AI’s impact is likely to be profound, tilting the scales in favor of defenders and empowering organizations to defend at machine speed. At Microsoft, we are privileged to have a leading role in advancing AI innovation, and we are so grateful to our incredible ecosystem of partners, whose mission-driven work is critical to helping customers secure their organizations and confidently bring the many benefits of AI into their environments.” said Vasu Jakkal, CVP, Microsoft Security.

“AI isn’t an optional security capability,” said Jason Floyd, Ascent Solutions’ Chief Innovation Officer. “Cyber threat actors already leverage machine learning to power attacks. Defenders can’t fall behind. Security Copilot allows security teams to maximize Microsoft’s platform capabilities. Ascent’s innovation team has already leveraged Copilot’s logic generation, enhanced alert triage, and enriched querying features to accelerate analyst inquiry and provide deeper kill chain insights. We’re eager to show customers how Copilot can revolutionize their Microsoft security programs.”

Security Copilot is the first AI-powered security product that enables security professionals to respond to threats quickly, process signals at machine speed, and assess risk exposure in minutes. It combines an advanced large language model (LLM) with a security-specific model that is informed by Microsoft’s unique global threat intelligence and more than 65 trillion daily signals.
