Cequence is a proud participant in the Microsoft Security Copilot Partner Private Preview

SUNNYVALE, Calif. — November 15, 2023 Cequence Security today announced its participation in the Microsoft Security Copilot Partner Private Preview. Cequence was selected based on their proven experience with Microsoft Security technologies, willingness to explore and provide feedback on cutting-edge functionality, and close relationship with Microsoft.

“In the context of security, AI’s impact is likely to be profound, tilting the scales in favor of defenders and empowering organizations to defend at machine speed. At Microsoft, we are privileged to have a leading role in advancing AI innovation, and we are so grateful to our incredible ecosystem of partners, whose mission-driven work is critical to helping customers secure their organizations and confidently bring the many benefits of AI into their environments,” said Vasu Jakkal, CVP, Microsoft Security.

Cequence is working with Microsoft product teams to help shape Security Copilot product development in several ways, including validation and refinement of new and upcoming scenarios, providing feedback on product development and operations to be incorporated into future product releases, and validation and feedback of APIs to assist with Security Copilot extensibility.

“Cequence and Microsoft are helping customers achieve peace of mind by providing innovative technology that empowers security teams to focus on critical tasks,” said Ameya Talwalkar, founder and CEO of Cequence. “APIs are the connective tissue of today’s digital world and a cornerstone of generative AI, which makes them a prime target for threat actors. Cequence saw shadow API abuse skyrocket by 900%, highlighting a lack of API visibility. AI is poised to revolutionize API security, helping organizations discover, comply, test, and protect their APIs more effectively. It will streamline operations, empower security teams to counter the constant onslaught of threats, and automate manual tasks, freeing up time and ensuring better and more efficient risk management.”

Security Copilot is the first AI-powered security product that enables security professionals to respond to threats quickly, process signals at machine speed, and assess risk exposure in minutes. It combines an advanced large language model (LLM) with a security-specific model that is informed by Microsoft’s unique global threat intelligence and more than 65 trillion daily signals.
