Ontinue Named a Security Services Innovator and Security Customer Champion Finalist in Microsoft Security Excellence Awards

Ontinue has been nominated as a finalist in the Microsoft Security Excellence Awards in two categories: Security Services Innovator and Security Customer Champion. Recognition like this is tremendously important to us, since we’re being honored among a global field of 400 MISA Partners, industry leaders and peers.

But to know exactly what this means for us, and our industry, here’s a bit more context.

Security Services Innovator

The Microsoft Security Services Innovator Award recognizes an MSSP that “delivers an innovative and transformative security service to customers.” Not only must the winner be exceptional at educating the market on security risks, but they must also drive holistic, end-to-end MXDR security strategy with customers using Microsoft security products, focusing on collaboration and automation.

As Chief Innovation Officer, I ensure that our product enables customers to stay ahead of attackers by working with us in innovative ways. Collaboration is a core part of our ION platform, which is built into Microsoft Teams to deliver Nonstop SecOps. We believe in extreme workflow augmentation by living and breathing in the same collaboration platform our customers use for their day-to-day work.

Security Customer Champion

This award is given to a member that goes above and beyond to drive customer impact. We’re pleased to be a finalist recognized for all we do for our customers. Microsoft says they’re looking for a proven track record of customer obsession and success.

This couldn’t be more in line with Ontinue’s real-time collaboration culture. We’re known for delivering the highest level of service to our customers. Customers consider us more as co-collaborators and partners than vendors, seeing us as an extension of their team and a force multiplier. We do this to improve our customers’ security maturity with rapid results. The small but powerful Tiberium team and I pioneered this collaboration-based approach to working with customers, and our combined culture now that we’ve joined forces with Ontinue will continue our obsession to drive customer impact.

Winners Announced at RSAC

We will learn the winners during the Microsoft Security Excellence Awards on April 24, 2023, during RSAC. At RSAC, Microsoft will celebrate all of the finalists in 11 award categories honoring partner trailblazers, solution innovators, customer and technology champions, and changemakers – the fourth year for recognizing partners for their outstanding work in security.

During RSAC, we will also share the stage with Microsoft on April 26 at 11:30 am as we showcase Ontinue ION’s capabilities. We’d love to meet with you during the show.

Ontinue is a proud member of MISA, which brings 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. 

We look forward to celebrating with Microsoft and its security partners during RSA, and we are grateful for the recognition as a finalist for these two awards.
