The Microsoft Cloud is helping Microsoft’s Digital Crimes Unit make it much more difficult for cybercriminals to hack devices, compromise emails and steal intellectual property around the world.

Keeping customers safe is one of the biggest challenges facing businesses today. The Digital Crimes Unit uses Microsoft cloud technology and data analytics to detect and assess threats so law enforcement agencies can stop them.

“Using our advanced analytics tools, analysis that used to take days to run, we can now see in real time,” says Tom Burt of the Digital Crimes Unit. “And we’re building what we learn back into the cloud, to make people and organizations safer.”

Microsoft malware analysts and cybercrime investigators recently used the Microsoft Cloud and custom analytics to detect a sophisticated threat to millions of computers worldwide. As a result, law enforcement agencies took action to stop the Win32/Dorkbot malware in its tracks.
