Ontinue was selected based on their proven experience with Microsoft Security technologies, willingness to explore and provide feedback on cutting edge functionality, and close relationship with Microsoft.

At Microsoft, we are privileged to have a leading role in advancing AI innovation, and we are so grateful to our incredible ecosystem of partners, whose mission-driven work is critical to helping customers secure their organizations and confidently bring the many benefits of AI into their environments.” said Vasu Jakkal, CVP, Microsoft Security.

“AI is set to completely transform cybersecurity. This paradigm shift has extended beyond the mere evolution of threat design and execution to include how organizations can harness the power of AI to strengthen their defenses and prevent cyberthreats. In this era of AI-versus-AI combat, organizations must leverage AI technologies to enhance their capabilities in detecting, resolving, and remediating the intricate and evolving landscape of cyberthreats,” said Geoff Haydon, CEO at Ontinue. “Microsoft has placed a strong emphasis on AI and automation in their approach to security, which is in alignment with the core tenants at Ontinue. The integration of AI into cybersecurity is no longer a choice but a strategic necessity for safeguarding organizations. Ontinue is committed to the ongoing success of our collaboration with Microsoft that strengthens the security posture of joint customers with nonstop SecOps.”  

“We believe that AI is pivotal in making better and faster security decisions that are more operationally relevant, and will greatly improve accuracy, consistency and speed,” said Tom Corn, CPO of Ontinue. “The exceptional quality and extensive range of Microsoft’s security products, along with their prominent position in the market, have driven us to make substantial investments in becoming experts in all things Microsoft. Our goal is to empower organizations to unlock enhanced functionality and maximize the value of their Microsoft investments.”
