Microsoft Gold Partner and Managed Security specialist Transparity are delighted to announce that they have joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA). MISA is an ecosystem of Managed Security Service providers and independent software vendors who have integrated their services or solutions with Microsoft to further enhance their cybersecurity posture. Members come together to collaborate with Microsoft and each other based on a shared objective of improving security for their customers.
Transparity’s Managed Security Service is the initial MISA service offered in the MISA partner catalogue. The service leverages enterprise-grade Microsoft Cloud Security functionality – including Azure Sentinel and Microsoft 365 E5 – and as an integrated toolset, it negates the need to incorporate different security products from a variety of vendors.
The service incorporates a 24×7 Security Operations Centre (SOC) and is a proactive solution, rather than reactive; a key differentiator. This means that Transparity’s Security Team not only manage events in real time, but continue to actively search for threats and carefully monitor customer environments to reduce future security incidents.
Additionally, the service is aligned to Transparity’s “Secure by Design” evergreen blueprint, which is constantly reconfigured and matured in line with new threats and emerging best practices. The result is enhanced protection in comparison to a traditional reactive Security monitoring service.
Kelvin Papp, Chief Technology Officer at Transparity, said: “MISA is an ecosystem of independent software vendors and Managed Security Service providers who are leading the charge in the development of Microsoft-centric security solutions and services to protect organisations and users. We’re proud to be announced as a member, and to be recognised by Microsoft for our contribution and the unique service we have created.
“We’ve invested heavily in our security services over the last 12 months, launching both our Managed Security Service and 24×7 SOC. We’re excited to continue our growth and expansion across both Security and Compliance in collaboration with the MISA team in the months ahead.”
Mandana Javaheri, Director of Business Strategy – Microsoft Security Partner Development, added: “I am pleased to have Transparity join us as a partner in the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA). By including our strategic Managed Security Services Providers (MSSPs) in MISA, we help enable further collaboration between cybersecurity industry leaders in protecting and supporting our joint customers.”
