Tue, 19th Mar 2024

Quorum Cyber, a cybersecurity company rapidly growing its presence in the UK and North America, has been announced as a double award finalist in the Microsoft Security Excellence Awards. This esteemed recognition comes for both Security Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) of the Year and Security Customer Champion.

Quorum Cyber joins the ranks of global industry leaders, recognised for their successful contributions to the security landscape over the past twelve months. The company is a part of the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA), a network of independent software vendors and managed security service providers that have integrated their security solutions with Microsoft's security technology.

The firm has also recently secured a Microsoft FastTrack-ready partner designation. This status empowers Quorum Cyber to accelerate the deployment of cloud solutions for its customers. In addition, it complements the company's ability to deliver exceptional cybersecurity advantages, thanks to its expanding expertise in Microsoft security tools like Microsoft Purview, Microsoft Entra and Microsoft Copilot for Security. Further enhanced cybersecurity defence is achievable via artificial intelligence.

The CEO and Founder of Quorum Cyber, Federico Charosky, expressed his delight at the nomination: “We are thrilled to be shortlisted as a finalist in not one, but two, categories at the upcoming Microsoft Security Excellence Awards 2024. We're especially honoured to be recognised as a Security MSSP of the Year finalist, as this validates our vision of providing global customers with unparalleled cybersecurity, identity and risk management solutions. As a proud Microsoft partner and MISA member, we utilise cutting-edge Microsoft technology in the fight against global cybercrime and strive to help good people win.”

The Microsoft Security Excellence Awards will be held on May 6, 2024, where partner trailblazers, solution innovators, technology champions, and changemakers will be celebrated across nine award categories. Now on its fifth year, Microsoft continues to acknowledge outstanding work of partners in the security field. All finalists are MISA members, contributing to a security ecosystem integrated with Microsoft's security technology.

Maria Thomson, Director of Microsoft Intelligent Security Association, congratulated this year's finalists: “I’m very pleased to extend my warmest congratulations to this year's finalists for the Microsoft Security Excellence Awards. These accolades recognise the outstanding achievements of our Microsoft Intelligent Security Association members in improving customers' ability to identify and respond to security threats." She added, "Our community comprises the most reliable and trusted security vendors around the globe. This year, the exceptional talent displayed by the finalists stood out from hundreds of competitive entries.”

Established to gather industry veterans from Microsoft, ISVs, and MSSPs to combat security threats and promote a safer environment, MISA spearheads the Microsoft Security Excellence Awards. As a highlight, industry veterans from the Association and Microsoft itself will vote to select the winners, honouring peers for their exceptional contributions.
