SCC Joins Microsoft Intelligent Security Association
European technology solutions and services firm SCC today announced that it has become a member of Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA) to further bolster its commitment to cyber security excellence.
MISA is an ecosystem of independent software vendors (ISV) and managed security service providers (MSSP) that have integrated their solutions with Microsoft’s security technology to better defend against a world of increasing threats.
The nomination was a result of SCC’s Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR) solution, which provides businesses with a round-the-clock detection and response service by combining best-of-breed technologies and automation to prevent, detect, and respond to threats across customers’ attack surfaces. Our MXDR service leverages Microsoft’s robust security solutions including Microsoft Entra ID, Microsoft Defender for Cloud, Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps, Microsoft Defender for Endpoint, Microsoft Defender for Identity, Microsoft Defender for Office 365, and Microsoft Sentinel.
The solution provides SCC’s customers with end-to-end visibility and reduces the risk of data loss or business disruption caused by security incidents. By SCC joining MISA, SCC joins Microsoft experts, resources, and a network of partners, accelerating the development and delivery of secure, compliant, and scalable solutions.
As part of its membership in MISA, SCC will work closely with Microsoft and other association members to develop best practices, share insights and expertise, and drive innovation. SCC will also participate in joint go-to-market activities with Microsoft, providing customers with integrated solutions that leverage both companies’ technologies.
James Henigan, Managing Director of Cyber Security at SCC, said: “SCC’s membership in MISA extends our long and successful collaboration with Microsoft, and underlines our ongoing commitment to providing the best cyber security solutions to our customers. In today’s digital age, where cyber threats are becoming increasingly sophisticated and prevalent, it is more crucial than ever to have a trusted partner who understands the evolving landscape of cybersecurity. Being one of MISA’s exclusive MSSP Partners, we are able to help customers maximise Microsoft Security investments with a proven managed service. SCC remains committed to safeguarding businesses and individuals from these threats by continuously improving and adapting our security services.”
Parri Munsell, Senior Director, Security Partner Marketing at Microsoft commented: “I am pleased to have SCC 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.”
