There’s a myth that #Microsoft doesn’t “do” #security… Think again..

The myth that Microsoft isn’t a security vendor continues… led mainly by the traditional security appliance vendors and organisations that are still predominately on premise and therefore defend their data centre and office perimeters with traditional security blockers.. (sorry that was a bit of a generalist statement and not meant to offend)!

In reality, nothing could be further from the truth. With more than a billion dollar investment in security each year (excluding acquisitions), Microsoft has been recognised as a leader in multiple security-related Gartner Magic Quadrants, the Forrester Wave for Endpoint Security, and by I dependant AV testing firms such as AV TEST, AV Comparatives, and SE Labs in 2019 alone.

Security is built in across everything Microsoft designs, deploys and makes available and I’m proud to work and lead a certified and accredited partner is this space with Gold in Enterprise Mobility and Security competencies.

Check out the latest reports:

Take the time to read the reports and I’d love to hear your experiences thoughts and views on where you think Microsoft has its biggest gaps in this space.

Finally, theres some new announcements this week at Ignite to be sure to check these out.. The latest today is the announcment of #safedocuments which adds ATP type protection to Office desktop apps. Rolling over the next couple of month, when a user wants to consider a document “trusted”, Safe Documents will automatically check the file against the ATP threat cloud before it releases the document.

Thanks for reading and have a good day..
