Description

Microsoft Sentinel is an AI-powered security solution that delivers real-time threat detection and protection in large, complex environments. The solution is built on a unified platform, which allows organizations to correlate data from multiple sources and monitor their environments in real time. Sentinel uses machine learning and behavioral analytics to detect anomalies in network traffic and identify threats based on how they behave.

While it may be easy to get overwhelmed by all the information in Microsoft Sentinel, Watchlists help you stay on top of logs and proactively monitor them for relevant data. Watchlists are customized views that allow you to see specific information related to your organization. You can create watchlists of high-value assets and service accounts in your environment.

You will create a watchlist item in your Microsoft Sentinel workspace using Azure Portal in this hands-on lab.
