Darktrace has joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA) — a co-operative made up of independent software vendors and managed security services providers, which have integrated their respective security products with Microsoft's offering.

As part of the arrangement, Darktrace’s autonomous detection, investigation and response capabilities will be embedded into a number of Microsoft cloud and SaaS environments.

Darktrace’s Self-Learning AI offering collects information about an organisation’s operations, and autonomously responds to emerging threats in a bid to minimise cyber disruption.


The technology can be applied to all Microsoft 365 products, including Microsoft Exchange, OneDrive, SharePoint, and Teams, supporting the autonomous defence of joint customer environments from threats across cloud infrastructure and SaaS tools.

Darktrace AI is also designed to proactively protect users of Microsoft 365 email environments from spear-phishing and supply-chain attacks.

Threat alerts and automated threat investigation reports can also be sent and visualised inside Sentinel with a bespoke Workbook.

“We are proud to be members of MISA. Where Microsoft runs, Darktrace protects – and together, we are empowering and augmenting human security teams with Self-Learning AI,” Nicole Eagan, chief strategy officer, AI officer at Darktrace said.

Rob Lefferts, corporate vice president, Microsoft Defender, welcomed Darktrace to the co-operative.

“Members of the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association, like Darktrace, offer solutions that supercharge defence work against a world of increasingly sophisticated, fast-moving threats,” Lefferts said.

“The integration of Microsoft 365 with their solutions allows us to work together to help customers navigate the security landscape.”
