Edinburgh, UK—April 19, 2023—UK-based cybersecurity firm Quorum Cyber announced Ricky Simpson is joining the company as its new U.S. Solutions Director. Simpson has over ten years of experience at Microsoft and will support Quorum Cyber’s expansion across North America. In addition, the company will attend the RSA Conference™, taking place from April 24-27 in San Francisco, booth# 6044N. Quorum Cyber will join Microsoft, demonstrating its sophisticated Microsoft Sentinel Managed Detection & Response (MDR) service.

Simpson will be based in California to bring new identity-focused security products to market.

He comes with expertise in Microsoft’s productivity solutions (Microsoft 365), the Microsoft Defender suite, security in the cloud, and identity security.

“I’m delighted to welcome Ricky Simpson to our team as we establish our presence in North America and offer our cybersecurity services to a growing customer base,” said Quorum Cyber Chief Revenue Officer Scott Abney. “His proven expertise and experience working with product teams and delivering services in the U.S. and Europe will be invaluable as we empower all organizations to achieve greater cyber resilience.”

Quorum Cyber Attends The RSA Conference; Participates With Microsoft

As a Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA) member, Microsoft invited Quorum Cyber to present its Microsoft Sentinel Managed Detection & Response (MDR) service within Microsoft’s RSA booth# 6044N, Moscone North. Simpson will be joined by Microsoft representative Cederic Depaepe on Wednesday, April 26th, from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm for the live demonstration.

Quorum Cyber’s Security Operations Center (SOC) manages and delivers the integrated Microsoft Sentinel MDR service. The SOC comprises qualified Quorum Cyber cybersecurity professionals that respond to IT threats 24/7. With Depaepe, Quorum Cyber will showcase its SOC’s real-time methods to find, analyze and contain customer threats.

“Working closely with customers, I’ve observed that numerous organizations lack the funds, expertise, and manpower to establish or operate an in-house SOC,” said Simpson. “However, their C-suite executives recognize the necessity of round-the-clock protection against constant cyber threats. Quorum Cyber provides these companies a cost-effective means of detecting and reacting to potential cyber incidents without hiring a large IT security team. I look forward to partnering with Microsoft and demonstrating our solution to RSA attendees.”
