The company and its founder were honoured among a global field of industry leaders that demonstrated success across the security landscape during the past 12 months.

Nathan Heard, Microsoft Alliance Manager, Quorum Cyber, said: “Quorum Cyber is a proud, longstanding member of the Microsoft Partner programme. Last year we saw a great example of the advantages of this alliance, when Quorum Cyber became the first Microsoft-verified provider of Managed Extended Detection and Response headquartered in the UK, one of the most sophisticated cyber security solutions available. These services are vital to meeting the cyber security challenges faced by complex businesses and organisations in the digital world.”

Federico Charosky, Founder and CEO of Quorum Cyber, said: “I founded Quorum Cyber with a mission to help good people win and the Microsoft Partner programme is integral to keeping Quorum Cyber aligned with this mission. The Microsoft Intelligent Security Association’s support for fast-growing, innovative businesses like Quorum Cyber is helping businesses and organisations overcome threats and focus on their core operations.”

At the Microsoft Security Excellence Awards on 24 April 2023, Microsoft will celebrate finalists in 11 award categories honouring partner trailblazers, solution innovators, customer and technology champions, and changemakers. This is the fourth year Microsoft is recognizing partners for their outstanding work in the security landscape. All finalists are members of the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA), an ecosystem of independent software vendors (ISVs) and managed security service providers (MSSPs) that have integrated their security products and services with Microsoft’s security technology.

“I’m very pleased to extend my warmest congratulations to this year’s finalists for the Microsoft Security Excellence Awards. These are presented each year to recognize the outstanding achievements of our Microsoft Intelligent Security Association members as they improve customers’ ability to identify and respond to security threats. Our community is made up of the most reliable and trusted security vendors worldwide. This year we received hundreds of quality submissions from partners and Microsoft stakeholders, so this year’s finalists stood out in a crowd of exceptional talent. It’s my pleasure to acknowledge and celebrate their work over the past year,” said Maria Thomson, Microsoft Intelligent Security Association Lead.

MISA was established to bring together Microsoft leaders, ISVs, and MSSPs to work together to defeat security threats and make the world a safer place. The industry veterans in MISA and Microsoft will vote to select the winners of the Microsoft Security Excellence Awards, providing an opportunity for colleagues to honour their peers for delivering exceptional work to our shared customers.
