Membership in MISA will enable Softline to develop and promote various cybersecurity solutions, especially those based on Security Operation Center (SOC). Softline engineers are experts both in designing a cybersecurity center based on the customer's IT landscape and in providing SOC as a ready-to-use service. By taking part in MISA, the company's engineers will be able to work even more closely and productively with Microsoft experts to ensure secure and seamless product integration and help them create managed services.
Softline has many years of experience in implementing comprehensive cybersecurity projects, many of which were co-executed with Microsoft. Last year, Softline launched a new service powered by Azure Sentinel solution — an information security incident monitoring and response center (SOC). The use of Microsoft cloud technologies makes SOC-as-a-Service available for Softline customers all over the world, thus minimizing the risk of missing information leaks or vulnerabilities. The Softline team has also created a unique offer for Russian customers: creating a dedicated cybersecurity center powered by the Azure Sentinel platform, which the companies further develop and support in-house.
"Microsoft is steadily strengthening its position in the cybersecurity market. Last year, Microsoft Security products entered into top-5 of Gartner's Magic Quadrants, and this is just the beginning. Softline is honored to join Microsoft Intelligent Security Association. This is a naturally determined achievement for the company, because cybersecurity has long since been declared one of our key priorities. Softline has a long-standing partnership with this global technology leader: the provider has the global Microsoft Azure Expert MSP status, as well as the highest partner statuses in 18 Microsoft competencies out of 20. Therefore, becoming a MISA member means once again confirming our professionalism in the two crucial areas of our business. We are confident that membership in the association will enable Softline to combine its experience with Microsoft's expertise and cybersecurity technologies. We will leverage these advantages to protect companies all over the world in the modern realities when many employees go remote and new threats emerge,"— comments on the importance of participation in MISA Sergey Chernovolenko, Softline Global CEO.
