This diagram describes how Microsoft hunts beyond endpoints and provides recommendations in a five-step process. Starting with formulating a hypothesis to explain data suggesting a potential threat, then finding context using artificial intelligence and observation. Then Microsoft hunts and collects more data to investigate and analyze the most critical threats. From there, Microsoft notifies customers of the findings with recommendations.
