“Secured2 provides a modern method of physical data protection versus end-of-life math-based encryption. By utilising quantum-secure algorithms, our solutions provide robust protection, particularly in a future dominated by quantum computing and AI. Key offerings include quantum-secure MFA for Microsoft Authenticator, data-at-rest encryption and the innovative ParticleMesh quantum-secure internet, which ensures comprehensive security for data in transit and storage. Through a strategic partnership with Microsoft, Secured2 integrates seamlessly with platforms like Microsoft Office 365, enhancing enterprise security frameworks. This integration leverages Microsoft’s extensive cloud infrastructure and Secured2’s technology, creating an impenetrable shield against both current and future digital threats.” IT network “Sophos Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) enables secure access to networked applications relying on the principles of zero trust: trust nothing and always verify everything. By removing the implicit trust that other remote-access technologies utilise, ZTNA can deliver better security and an improved user experience at the same time. An essential component of zero trust is validating user identity via multi-factor authentication, and this is where partnerships with Microsoft – to integrate with the Entra ID (formerly Azure Active Directory) platform – are immensely beneficial, allowing organisations to use a common set of corporate credentials for both on-network and remote access with ZTNA.” “As a leading member of MISA, Secude embeds Microsoft’s zero-trust protection and data governance into SAP data exports and computer-aided design files from the point of creation. By extending Microsoft’s powerful security technology to these important types of data, we safeguard governmental, business and employee data. Our partnership with MISA enables us to deliver comprehensive security solutions, helping organisations tackle modern cyber threats and adhere to rigorous security standards, such as Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification 2.0 and General Data Protection Regulation.” Mario Galatovic CEO, Secude Daren Klum CEO, Secured2 Chris McCormack Director, Product Marketing, Sophos 51 Photo: iStock/Thapana Onphalai
