Microsoft’s AI Copilot for Security launches next month with pay-as-you-go pricing

Microsoft is set to introduce Copilot for Security, a generative AI chatbot aimed at aiding cybersecurity professionals. Leveraging OpenAI’s GPT-4 and Microsoft’s security data, the tool offers real-time insights into security incidents and threat summaries. Unique features include a collaborative pinboard and event summarization for reporting. Unlike the fixed pricing of Copilot for Microsoft 365, Copilot for Security will adopt a consumption-based model, charging $4 per hour starting April 1st, allowing businesses to scale their AI cybersecurity investment.

This initiative is part of Microsoft’s broader strategy to bolster its software security, especially in light of recent cyberattacks by state-sponsored groups like Nobelium and vulnerabilities exploited in Microsoft’s Azure cloud and Exchange Server. The company is actively overhauling its security measures to prevent future breaches and improve resilience against sophisticated cyber threats.
