A boost for InSpark’s Microsoft Azure-Powered Cloud SOC
We are very proud to announce that InSpark has joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA). As a member of MISA we are even more able to help organizations fight off increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks.
The Microsoft Intelligent Security Association is an ecosystem of independent software vendors and managed security service providers that have integrated with Microsoft Security to better defend against a world of increasing threats.
MISA membership will be a marvelous boost for InSpark’s intelligent security services. Our already intensive partnership with Microsoft has now resulted in InSpark becoming one of the first partners worldwide to be admitted as Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP). The driving force behind all this: our Cloud Security Center solution that will now become even more enhanced.
After last year’s success, winning the global #1 Microsoft Security & Compliance Partner of the Year Award, being nominited to MISA is a huge next milestone for us. We want to thank Microsoft for the opportunity to work so closely with them. Together we can create some of the safest cloud environments possible for our customers.
InSpark’s CTO Stefan Daelemans.
Members of the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association, like InSpark, offer solutions that supercharge defense work against a world of increasingly sophisticated, fast-moving threats. The integration of Microsoft 365 with their solutions allows us to work together to help customers navigate the security landscape.
Rob Lefferts, Corporate Vice President of Microsoft 365 Security.
At InSpark we integrated our Cloud Security Center (SOC) with most security services that Microsoft has to offer. With these integrations continuously powering our SOC we can provide an additional layer of protection by applying our own Intellectual Property (IP), which we created over the last years based on our experiences of protecting hundreds of thousands of cloud users.
Services like Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), Microsoft Azure Active Directory (AD) Identity Protection, Microsoft Cloud App Security, Azure Security Center and Azure ATP are all integrated by using Azure Sentinel and the Microsoft Graph Security API. This way we take care of our customers’ security needs in a managed manner and make sure that all threats and vulnerabilities are addressed on a 24/7 basis. Our tailor-made customer portal addresses all main concerns of CISOs, CIOs and CFOs.
With Microsoft Azure and Microsoft 365 as the key base for cloud driven security innovation and “passwordless” as our joint number one security goal, being a member of the MISA program will allow us to safeguard our customers’ security policies even more efficiently. We are extremely proud that our Cloud Security Center is listed as one of the first MSSP offerings in the MISA catalogs.
InSpark’s Lead Security & Compliance, Derk van der Woude.
Due to the growing number and sophistication of security threats proliferating across the globe, we see great value in achieving strength through numbers. By adding proven partners like InSpark to the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association family of security solutions, we are helping to better combat threats to customers worldwide.
