Australia Partners With Microsoft to Create Cyber Intelligence Sharing Platform


Australia has unveiled a collaborative effort between the Australian Signals Directorate and Microsoft to beef up the country’s cybersecurity.

Under the partnership program, ASD connected its Cyber Threat Intelligence Sharing platform with Microsoft Sentinel, allowing the latter’s Australian users to immediately share cyberthreat information on the combined systems.

According to ASD, the collaboration provides access to Sentinel, which boasts the capability to process 65 trillion signals of global threat intelligence every day.

The service will be available to customers enrolled in both Microsoft Sentinel and ASD’s CTIS platform, the directorate added.

The initiative is part of Microsoft’s $3.2 billion investment that Canberra announced in October 2023 to enhance the country’s cyber defenses.

Steven Worrall, managing director of Microsoft Australia and New Zealand, stressed that the project will further deepen the company’s working relationship with the Australian government which started 40 years ago.

In a statement, Deputy Prime Minister Richard Marles said the initiative underscores the importance of partnership to promote innovation and deliver practical outcomes for Australia’s cyber resilience.
