TAMPA, FL / ACCESSWIRE / January 17, 2024 / Abacode Cybersecurity and Compliance (Abacode) today announces their recognition by Microsoft for the Threat Protection Specialization. This designation follows the previous acknowledgment as a Microsoft Designated Solutions Partner for Security and underscores their commitment to delivering world-class cybersecurity services and their dedication to staying at the forefront of the industry. The designation is reserved for partners who demonstrate deep knowledge, extensive experience, and proven success deploying Microsoft Threat Protection, Microsoft Cloud App Security, or Azure Sentinel workloads.

Abacode - Microsoft Solutions Partner Security Specialist Threat Protection

The process to be granted Solutions Partner status is complicated and lengthy, and the Threat Protection Specialization further sets Abacode apart from their competitors. This is a key step in the company’s continuous growth model to combat the changing threat landscape.

As one of Abacode’s primary technology partners, this recognition means the company is uniquely qualified to implement Microsoft’s cybersecurity solutions. Reaching this milestone required a multi-step process involving both internal and external stakeholders. First, Abacode had to receive a Solutions Partner designation in the Security solution area. Next, they had to attain a minimum level of 1,000 Monthly Active Usage (MAU) growth for either Microsoft Defender for Identity or Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps (MDCA) within a trailing twelve-month period. The company did this through the Claiming Partner of Record CPOR process. Internally, six individuals passed the requirements for Microsoft Certified: Security Operations Analyst Associate. Externally, Abacode provided three customer references that demonstrate the company’s ability to deploy Microsoft Threat Protection or Microsoft Cloud App Security workload.
