Microsoft has become a new cybersecurity giant. In the financial report released last Tuesday, in the past 12 months, the total revenue of Microsoft’s security products exceeded US$10 billion, an increase of 40% year-on-year, accounting for about 7% of the company’s total revenue last year. In an interview with Yahoo Finance on the second day of the earnings report, Nadella said: “I am still waiting for one day in the future to be able to show the depth, breadth and breadth of what we have done.”
Nadella said: “We still have a lot of work to do for this day, and we are making large-scale investments. We will continue to discuss this topic in the next 10 years because technology has become all the key to our social life. An important part of the industry“.
The $10 billion in revenue comes from the security-related revenue generated by Microsoft’s Azure Active Directory, Intune, Microsoft Defender for Endpoint, Office 365, Microsoft Cloud App Security, Microsoft Information and Governance, Azure Sentinel, Azure Monitoring, and Azure Information Protection services.
Nadella said: “What we have built is very helpful in times of crisis, and now we are also facing a very big crisis. But you need the kind of obvious to build all of these in a few years or even decades and then Not only product innovation, but what I want to say is, daily practice to maintain it”.
Vasu Jakkal, corporate vice president of security, compliance, and identity marketing at Microsoft, told Yahoo Finance: “I’m most proud of being the first responder to this attack (referring to SolarWinds). We are the defense that other defenders have turned to. We are working with FireEye, and the entire public and private sectors are saying, “What should we do and how should we protect our world from it?”
Jakkal said that the main difference between Microsoft and other competitors is the ability to combine artificial intelligence and automation. The executive said that this is possible because a large number of customers who use Microsoft’s security mechanisms share their security signals with the company every day. She shared some current achievements of Microsoft in the security field:
● 400,000 users in more than 120 countries and regions around the world use Microsoft’s security solutions
● Among the Fortune 100 companies, 90 use four or more security, compliance, identity and management solutions provided by Microsoft.
● Microsoft solutions and security mechanisms can collect 8 trillion security signals within 24 hours
● Perform 2.5 billion cloud inspections every day in 2020, successfully preventing more than 6 billion endpoint threats
● More than 425 million daily active users on Azure AD performed 30 billion authentications
● In 2020, Microsoft Defender for Office 365 blocked more than 30 billion email threats
● The compliance solution processes more than 5 billion document classifications every month.
● Azure Sentinel analyzes more than 4PB of data from Azure, AWS, on-prem, etc. every month.
Jakkal went on to say that Microsoft is able to provide customers with security because it invests in seamless solutions that manage all major cloud and on-prem platforms. In addition, it also provides customers with security solutions that are easy to use but can handle complex attack vectors. Finally, the company has a rich ecosystem, which includes partnerships with various security organizations and researchers.
