September 17 2021, by Barry Silic | Category: Cloud Services

Macquarie Cloud Services has joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA). MISA is is an ecosystem of independent software vendors (ISV) and managed security service providers (MSSP) that have integrated their security products and services with Microsoft’s to better defend against a world of increasing threats. Our mission is to provide better security for our shared customers by extending across the security ecosystem to share signals, increase visibility, and protect against cyber threats.

Macquarie Cloud Services Cyber Security practice nomination for the programme is further testament of our ever-growing relationship with Microsoft, most recent accolade being that of our Azure Expert MSP status. Our 24/7 onshore Australian SOC forms part of our Managed Security Service, delivering, managed detection and response (MDR) on Microsoft Azure Sentinel and Microsoft 365 Defender.

“We remain focused on delivering results for the under served and over charged. Being invited to such a prestigious programme is a huge step for us in being able to support the security requirements of Australian businesses. Our MISA membership puts us in the perfect position to help businesses defend themselves against increasingly regular and complex cyber attacks”.
