Vectra enables Microsoft customers to complement their Microsoft 365 protection beyond the Defender Secure Score, enhance their Security Operations Center (SOC) capabilities and prevent attackers from establishing a foothold with its platform’s deep integration with both Microsoft Defender for Endpoint and Microsoft Azure Sentinel.

“Millions of organizations utilize Microsoft and its suite of productivity and collaboration tools daily, making them an incredibly rich, high value target for attackers,” said Michael Porat, Senior Vice President, Corporate & Business Development at Vectra. “Over the last few years, we have launched several deep product integrations that provide Microsoft customers with in-depth protection guidance, greater visibility into and control over their cloud, data center, Azure AD, and M365 environments, helping security teams block and isolate attacks in the most-efficient way possible. We are honored to be recognized by Microsoft as a finalist in their security excellence awards, as we continually work together with one common goal – preventing and stopping malicious activity.”

At the Microsoft Security Excellence Awards on June 5, 2022, Microsoft will celebrate finalists in 10 award categories honoring partner trailblazers, solution innovators, customer, and technology champions, and changemakers. Formerly known as the Microsoft Security 20/20 Awards, this is the third year recognizing Microsoft partners for their outstanding work in the security landscape. All finalists are members of the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA), an ecosystem of independent software vendors and managed security service providers (MSSPs) that have integrated their security products and services with Microsoft’s security technology.

“The Microsoft Intelligent Security Association has grown into a vibrant ecosystem comprised of the most reliable and trusted security software vendors across the globe”, said Maria Thomson, Microsoft Intelligent Security Association Lead. “Our members share Microsoft’s commitment to collaboration within the cybersecurity community to improve our customers’ ability to predict, detect, and respond to security threats faster. We’re thrilled to honor our incredible finalists in the Microsoft Security Excellence Awards and recognize their achievements during the past year.”

MISA was established to bring together Microsoft leaders, ISVs and MSSPs to work together to defeat security threats and make the world a safer place. The industry veterans in MISA and Microsoft will vote to select the winners of the Microsoft Security Excellence Awards, providing an opportunity for colleagues to honor their peers for delivering exceptional work to our shared customers.
