Understand how to improve your security posture with an SCC delivered XDR pathfinder using Microsoft tools.
Is your cloud environment truly secure?
As threats in the cyber landscape increase, becoming more complex and sophisticated, building cyber resilience into the fabric of your organisation is just as crucial as financial and operational resilience. Organisations today are managing a growing volume of data and alerts while balancing tight budgets and vulnerable legacy systems. Given the volume and complexity of identities, data, applications, devices, and infrastructure, it’s essential to mitigate and protect against threats.
Understand how to improve your security posture with a XDR pathfinder.
The XDR pathfinder is a proof of value for Microsoft Sentinel, a powerful Security Information Event Management (SIEM) tool, and Microsoft 365 Defender tools, that will be configured by SCC to an approved baseline. By fully leveraging Sentinel, your organisation gains real-time cyber threat detection and response capabilities, enhancing your overall security posture.
This engagement allows you to trial the full Microsoft Security Stack in your environment, configured to your requirements by Microsoft-accredited SCC Consultants.
SCC can help you visualise current threats that exist within your deployed M365 environment. This deployment will follow best practices and be tuned to deliver the best possible detection outcomes. You’ll gain visibility into immediate threats and vulnerabilities across Microsoft Azure, on-premises and multi-cloud environments, and additional actionable steps to identify how to improve your security posture for the long term.
How does it work?
Your workshop will start with a pre-engagement phone call, followed by a kick-off meeting to understand your organisation’s environment and requirements. SCC will then explore any identified risks and report them back to you in a results presentation. This report will empower your security teams to proactively address emerging threats and make data-driven decisions to strengthen your cyber defences.
What to expect
SCC will partner with you to strengthen your organisation’s approach to cyber security. We’ll help you better understand how to prioritise and mitigate potential attacks with:
- Analysis of cyber security threats that have been found.
- Visibility of the security profile for your Microsoft 365 cloud and on-premises environments.
- Actionable recommendations to improve your security strategy, to help immediately mitigate any identified threats and identified risks.

This pathfinder will benefit your organisation if you have invested in Microsoft M365 subscriptions such as E5 and have a desire to fully utilise the security functionality within the licensed environment. Alternatively, if your business does not have E5 licenses but is considering investing in E5, this engagement comes with an evaluation of E5 licenses and output to evidence performance.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I qualify for the XDR pathfinder delivered by SCC?
SCC can validate that you are able to receive the Microsoft-funded engagement. All we need is your organisation’s Office 365 Tenant ID to verify.
How do we carry out this pathfinder?
This is approximately 3 to 4 hours of your time and 5 days of SCC’s time, over a 31-day period.
What if you already have an alternative SIEM solution?
The XDR pathfinder will still be valuable for you. It can act as a sense check, identifying any areas of potential enhancement within your existing solution. It can also be used to baseline the existing solution’s operational capability against current best practices leveraging Microsoft Sentinel and the Defender suite, while simultaneously seeing the future potential to automate and deliver next-generation and advanced SOAR.
