BlueVoyant, a cybersecurity company that illuminates, validates, and mitigates internal and external risks, today announced its participation in the Microsoft Security Copilot Design Advisory Council. BlueVoyant was selected based on the team’s proven experience with Microsoft Security technologies, willingness to explore and provide feedback on cutting-edge functionality, and close relationship with Microsoft.
“In the context of security, AI’s impact is likely to be profound, tilting the scales in favour of defenders and empowering organisations to defend at machine speed,” said Vasu Jakkal, corporate vice president, Microsoft Security. “At Microsoft, we are privileged to have a leading role in advancing AI innovation, and we are so grateful to our incredible ecosystem of partners, whose mission-driven work is critical to helping customers secure their organisations and confidently bring the many benefits of AI into their environments.”
Security Copilot is the first AI-powered security product that enables security professionals to respond to threats quickly, process signals at machine speed, and assess risk exposure in minutes. It combines an advanced large language model (LLM) with a security-specific model that is informed by Microsoft’s unique global threat intelligence and more than 65 trillion daily signals.
BlueVoyant is working with Microsoft product teams to help shape Security Copilot product development in several ways, including validation and refinement of new and upcoming scenarios, providing feedback on product development and operations to be incorporated into future product releases, and validation and feedback of APIs to assist with Security Copilot extensibility.

The Security Copilot team has given us a front row seat to positively shape the security use cases customers can take advantage of with generative AI. Whether it’s thinking about security ethics, investigations, metrics, or attribution, we see Security Copilot presenting opportunities for customisation and expansion for our managed services offers to ensure our joint customers are maximising their Microsoft Security investment.”
