With Microsoft Windows having a 74% share of the desktop OS market worldwide, it's a pivotal platform within most organisations' IT environments. Furthermore, considering that four out of every five Fortune 500 companies harness the power of Microsoft Office 365—nearly half of the office productivity software market—it’s clear why securing the Microsoft ecosystem is so crucial.
Microsoft's Market Presence and cyber security Implications
Microsoft's prevalence doesn't end at desktop operating systems and productivity software. The embrace of cloud computing has seen 70% of organisations worldwide adopting Microsoft Azure for cloud services.
Microsoft's heavy investment in security solutions has resulted in a complex suite of tools that can be challenging to navigate. With various Business and Enterprise packages available, cyber security leaders often find themselves weighing the benefits of Microsoft's security stack against traditional 3rd party vendors. Identifying the right tools is paramount, as is maximizing the security of the Microsoft ecosystem and deriving the greatest value from Microsoft licensing investments. This extensive usage also presents a vast attack surface for potential cyber threats if not configured or managed properly.
With myriad business and enterprise packages at their disposal, cyber security leaders face the dilemma of what to utilise from the Microsoft security stack, and what might be better served by traditional 3rd party vendors. Navigating this landscape requires a nuanced understanding of both the threats present and the tools available.
