    Hi @Garima Das

    Thanks for reaching out.

    Microsoft offers a range of security tools and services that can be used to enhance your security posture. Some of the tools that can be used in conjunction with Microsoft Defender for XDR include:

    Microsoft Sentinel: Sentinel delivers intelligent security analytics and threat intelligence across the enterprise, providing a single solution for alert detection, threat visibility, proactive hunting, and threat response.


    Microsoft 365 Defender: A unified pre- and post-breach enterprise defense suite that natively coordinates detection, prevention, investigation, and response across endpoints, identities, email, and applications to provide integrated protection against sophisticated attacks.


    Azure Firewall: Azure Firewall Premium provides signature-based intrusion detection and prevention system (IDPS) to allow rapid detection of attacks by looking for specific patterns, such as byte sequences in network traffic, or known malicious instruction sequences used by malware.

    Micrsoft Entra ID: Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is a cloud-based identity and access management service that helps you secure access to your applications and data. Azure AD provides a single sign-on experience for your users, and enables you to enforce multi-factor authentication (MFA) and conditional access policies to protect against identity-based attacks.

    Microsoft Intune: Microsoft Intune is a cloud-based service that provides mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM) capabilities. Intune helps you secure your organization's data and devices by managing access to corporate resources, enforcing compliance policies, and protecting against data leakage.

    These tools can be integrated with Microsoft Defender for XDR to provide a comprehensive security solution for your organization.

    Hope this will help.
