On Monday, Microsoft disclosed that its Purview Insider Risk Management solution — which uses machine learning for detection of high-priority insider threats, in order to prevent data theft and leaks — has recently been updated with enhancements. Those include sequence detection and a policy condition that will exclude bulk emails from among the Purview Communication Compliance policies as a way to reduce noise in the detection tool. Microsoft said it’s also added a new capability to visually display a user’s overall data exfiltration activity in a chart format.
At the Microsoft Ignite conference in October, the company announced that the Purview Insider Risk Management solution had been updated with triaging enhancements, improved analytics assessment insights and new insights about the activity of potential high-impact users.
