  • More and better drop-down menus, some items in threat hunter require you know subsets.
  • Less dashboards, combine AA and DL without having separate logins.
  • More complete playbooks are already built out. You have the structure set up for templates like malware and phishing, go further and completely build them out from start to finish, most companies would just use them and not personalize their configurations.
