AMSTERDAM, June 11, 2019 — InSpark is the proud winner of the Microsoft Security and Compliance Partner of the Year Award 2019. The prize is being awarded because InSpark offers the most distinctive solution and service in terms of security and compliance. InSpark was named winner after being selected from a global field of 2,900 Microsoft partners from 115 countries.
The winning solution
The decisive factor for winning this award is InSpark’s Cloud Security Center. This managed security and compliance solution is the result of a modern vision on cloud security, multiple strong partnerships and years of experience in securing cloud environments. InSpark not only offers state-of-the-art security for the modern workplace and (hybrid) data centers in Microsoft Azure, but also 24/7 monitoring of potential security incidents. The monitoring activities are provided by SecOps engineers in InSpark’s own SOC (Security Operations Center). The service is charged based on a fixed price per user or per workload. By honoring InSpark with this award, Microsoft recognizes its unique qualities.
“We are incredibly proud. This award recognizes InSpark as the number one global security partner. It is a new milestone that we owe to the trust of our customers and the tireless commitment of colleagues with a passion for the Microsoft platform.”
Partnerships are key
“We have been working closely with Microsoft’s product teams in Redmond and Israel for many years and are investing heavily in these relationships. Our Cloud Security Center is a managed security service that has been created through intensive cooperation between the product groups within Microsoft, our pioneering customers such as KPMG, Perfetti van Melle and Vebego, and our InSpark colleagues with in-depth knowledge of Microsoft’s security solutions.”
Gavriella Schuster, Corporate Vice President, One Commercial Partner, Microsoft Corp.:
