The Study at a Glance

Microsoft conducted a great study to evaluate the efficiency gains from utilizing Copilot for Security within a Microsoft Defender XDR environment. The research compared two groups: one equipped with Copilot capabilities and the other without.

The objective? To measure the tool's influence on speed, accuracy, and quality in performing security-related tasks.

Key Findings from the Whitepaper

  • Enhanced Accuracy and Efficiency: The study revealed that Copilot users, both professionals and novices, demonstrated a notable increase in task accuracy. For instance, security professionals using Copilot were 7% more accurate, while novices experienced a 35% boost in accuracy.
  • Faster Task Completion: Speed is crucial in cybersecurity, and Copilot users excelled here as well. Professionals with Copilot completed tasks 22% faster, with novices achieving a 26% reduction in task completion time.
  • Improved Quality of Work: The quality enhancement was particularly evident in writing incident summaries, where Copilot users included more critical facts and presented superior writing quality.
  • Positive User Sentiment: Users expressed a strong preference for Copilot, noting its substantial contribution to reducing effort, increasing productivity, and enhancing work quality.
  • Impact on Professionals vs. Novices: While both groups benefited significantly, the whitepaper highlighted that novices saw more substantial improvements, likely due to their initial lower levels of expertise.
