The topic of security continues to be elevated in the boardroom, against a backdrop of more sophisticated attacks. At Avanade, we embrace the responsibility of keeping our clients, their businesses, and customers safe. Our focus on security has never been greater and we’ve been helping our clients navigate complex challenges such as the SolarWinds breach, maintaining compliance and securing remote working.
I’m extremely proud and honored to share that we have won the Microsoft Security 20/20 award for “Zero Trust champion – SI.” Winning this award is testament to the great work we have been doing and the trust our clients have placed in us.
The Zero Trust champion award recognized Avanade for helping clients accelerate their zero trust strategy. Amidst the pandemic, we helped our client, a global consumer brand to do just that - while preparing for divesture from its parent company. Centred on zero trust principles and powered by Microsoft 365 Security and Azure Security, we completely secured its new infrastructure and assets.
We’re proud to help our clients elevate their cybersecurity maturity and excited to bring innovation and new ideas to help them evolve their security services in the future.
As Microsoft grow, we continue to invest in our capabilities and our people. We’re pushing the boundaries when it comes to attracting new talent. Our new Avanade Cybersecurity Institute will give IT professionals the opportunity to learn from the best and become a certified cybersecurity consultant in 8 weeks.
Our ambition doesn’t stop there. We want to continue to uphold our reputation as the world’s leading Microsoft security services company. Our expertise, passion for technology and deep insights into emerging risks will help us to continue to protect our clients and keep them safe.
