It is fairly new but making a charge up the market anayses. Should be considered if you have E5 licence due to native and 'free' ingestion of M365 logs. We haven't used all of its capability yet because we haven't had the time yet to implement it all, and it appears that the MS roadmap for Sentinel is being actively invested in.

Azure Sentinel s actually quite handy, and very adaptive to the market trends. Anyone who is looking for the same store, creating their complete security solution for their enterprise, for the effective security solution, and for data integration, they must go with the Azure Sentinel as they are going to get everything in one place. I would rate Azure Sentinel at an eight on a scale of ten.

We're using the latest version of the solution. Choosing this solution was a management decision. Due to cost-effectiveness, they opted for Azure Sentinel. Whether this product would work for another organization or not depends on the company's requirements. As it is still very early in terms of our experience with the solution, I would rate the product at a six out of ten.

If it's a security integrator like us, quite often people push the client into buying different vendors' products and the client already has the tool in-house. Microsoft is one of those tools that most clients already have. Many vendors, or integrators, that we know of, are not familiar with Microsoft Sentinel product classification security. So that's one thing I would encourage both potential customers, and users, to look into what suite of products do they have with existing Microsoft accounts that they have. Also, the integrators should be quite familiar with all the things that are available to their clients, so they don't have to invest tons of money in other tools. Based on having no complaints, I would rate Azure Sentinel an eight out of ten.
