Sign-ins using PowerShell may be done by a system or network administrator. Verify whether the username, hostname, and/or resource name should be signing into your environment. Sign-ins from unfamiliar users or hosts should be investigated. If known behavior is causing false positives, it can be exempted from the rule.
The Azure Fleet Integration or Filebeat module must be enabled to use this rule.
