58 COVER STORY “Check Point is not only an active participant in MISA, we’re a founding member as well. Because of our relationship, we’ve worked closely with Microsoft to enhance the integration between Check Point and Microsoft Sentinel solutions. The integration on Azure Marketplace includes functionality such as automated security response from Microsoft Sentinel across all Check Point product lines. We also integrate our CloudGuard security findings into Microsoft Sentinel to enhance threat-hunting data points for security operations centre analysts. In addition, our integrations with Azure Virtual WAN and Azure Gateway Load Balancer underscore our commitment to our Microsoft partnership and to the MISA programme.” John Guo Cloud Alliance Architect, Check Point Software Technologies “Armorblox's cloud-delivered email security and data loss prevention platform complements native email security and data protection offered in Microsoft Defender by stopping business email compromise, financial fraud, zero-day attacks, and sensitive data loss using large language models, deep learning and behavioural analytics. Intelligence on threats detected is automatically sent to Microsoft Sentinel, allowing security operations teams to automate remediation actions and run playbooks. Armorblox integrates with on-premises Exchange and Microsoft 365 and runs seamlessly on Microsoft Azure, providing significant productivity gains for security operations teams through abuse mailbox automation and protections against graymail.” Anand Raghavan Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer, Armorblox “As a member of MISA, Entrust works closely with our Microsoft counterparts to bring a portfolio of holistic, trusted, compliant and post quantum ready solutions to support the zero-trust strategies of Microsoft customers. Together, we are enabling secure connections between people, systems and devices to streamline IT transformation, mitigate risks, defend against threats, and reduce fraud. Entrust Identity as a Service allows organisations to expand on Microsoft’s capabilities and adopt an identity-first approach to security with adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA), passwordless login, single sign-on, and secure access management for all users. Leveraging zero-trust principles, organisations are able to secure Windows server and desktop environments with MFA from Entrust, including offline authentication.” Rohan Ramesh Product Marketing Director, Entrust Photo: iStock/Lyndon Stratford
