Detect previously uncovered threats and minimize false positives using analytics and unparalleled threat intelligence from Microsoft.

Investigate threats with AI and proactively hunt suspicious activities at scale, tapping into decades of cybersecurity work at Microsoft.

Respond to incidents rapidly with built-in orchestration and automation of common tasks.

Get this quick start guide and learn how you can use smarter, faster threat detection and response that connects data from all your sources with the cloud and Azure Sentinel.

Producing a high yield and better quality of life

Sustainable energy and digital transformation can combine to provide new avenues to success and increase convenience for people in isolated areas. This is especially true in places without a modern electrical infrastructure where residents rely on labor-intensive tasks. Innovative solutions can help them automate simple tasks, often making the difference between mere survival and prosperity. In many parts of Africa, for example, farmers lack access to running water. Instead they rely on wells to sustain their families, water their crops, and support their livestock. 

In this video, you’ll see how Monica, an independent farmer in Kenya, increased her yields and quality of life by implementing a solar-powered irrigation system based on Microsoft Azure IoT.
