As a Microsoft partner – with 11 specialisations, Microsoft Azure Expert MSP status, a top three FastTrack partner and UK partner of the year 2021 – the MISA membership strengthens our relationship with Microsoft to further support and empower our customers.

MISA is an ecosystem of independent software vendors and managed security service providers that have integrated their solutions with Microsoft’s security technology to better defend and protect organisations against a world of increasing threats.

MISA helps customers find, try, and buy security solutions that work with their digital environments. As a member of MISA, we’re able to leverage Microsoft Security products to extend solution capabilities and share threat intelligence. We also have additional access to product teams to speed up integration.

Our Cloud and Solutions Director, Craig Taylor, says: “We’re excited to become part of the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association. This recognition reflects the investment we’re making in Microsoft Security services to support our customers and underscores the importance of our strategic relationship with Microsoft. MISA alongside our Security Specialisations and the Security Solution Partner designation in the Microsoft Cloud Partner program reinforces our position as a Microsoft Security focused partner.”

Our offering within MISA is our Sentinel Essentials managed service, which uses the power of Microsoft Sentinel to provide customers with a thorough understanding of what security events, issues, and threats are happening in real-time within their on-premise and cloud environments. The service gives customers access to our cyber security specialists 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, and is tailored specifically to the organisation’s requirements to ensure the customer’s systems and data are always protected.
