137 PUBLIC SECTOR “Government organisations are looking to modernise their communications to improve collaboration. However, that can often mean having to compromise on security. Fortra helps organisations take advantage of Microsoft’s cloud technology without compromise by supplementing Microsoft’s native security with an array of best-of-breed cybersecurity solutions. For example, Fortra’s email security solutions integrate with Microsoft 365 and stop advanced email threats like business email compromise and account takeover.” “Organisations often struggle with effective application governance, leaving them vulnerable to cyberattacks. With our free Application Governance Assessment report, organisations can quickly see how their application landscape compares to Microsoft’s recommended practices and quantify the results with our AppGov Score. The report runs over 24 different checks against an organisation’s tenant with the goal of strengthening its security posture through complete insight and control over Entra ID applications. The scoring system used by AppGov Score is governed by the input of experienced Microsoft Security Most Valued Professionals. We chose to build our solution with Microsoft’s Azure stack because we believed it was the best choice to bring our product to market quickly and securely.” “It is vital for organisations to protect all digital assets and intellectual property. That’s why our HaloCAD and HaloCORE solutions extend the powerful security offered by Microsoft Purview Information Protection to computer-aided design files, product lifecycle management systems, and any data extracted from SAP. Protecting this critical information is crucial for government agencies and is mandatory for complying with key regulations like the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification 2.0, the Network and Information Security Directive 2 and the General Data Protection Regulation. By extending Microsoft’s powerful security technology to these important types of data, we safeguard both defence-related and citizen data, reinforcing trust in government data security.” Mike Devine Chief Marketing Officer Fortra Jay Paul Gundotra CEO, ENow Software Mario Galatovic CEO, Secude Photo composite: Unsplash/Microsoft and ENow Software Photo: iStock/Leestat
