The company is excited that Microsoft recognizes BlueVoyant’s commitment to making cybersecurity a team sport with the latest accolade.

BlueVoyant won the 2022 Microsoft Security U.S. (MSUS) Partner of the Year award. While without a doubt the best accolade we receive is the trust from new and existing clients, we are honored to receive this award from Microsoft. The award recognizes BlueVoyant’s managed detection and response platform for Microsoft Sentinel and XDR platforms that include onboarding, proactive management, and 24x7 security operations, all enabled through the BlueVoyant Elements™ platform.

The MSUS awards fall under the umbrella of the Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards, which recognize Microsoft partners who have developed and delivered outstanding Microsoft-based applications, services, and devices during the past year. Both awards programs recognize outstanding work by Microsoft partners with the MSUS awards highlighting U.S.-specific partners' impact.

BlueVoyant is committed to helping customers operationalize Microsoft Security’s offerings for risk reduction and security simplification, while ensuring our clients get most of their Microsoft licenses. BlueVoyant will continue to develop innovative technologies that supplement, scale, and maximize our customers’ investment in Microsoft Security technologies — coupled with our 24x7 Security Operations — creating the most robust Managed Detection & Response (MDR) offering for Microsoft Security.

BlueVoyant and Microsoft both recognize that cybersecurity is a team sport, and have been working closely together for some time. Last year, BlueVoyant was named a Microsoft Security 20/20 Partner Awards Winner for Top MDR (Managed Detection and Response) Team. BlueVoyant was also recently tabbed a finalist for the Microsoft Canada 2022 Impact Awards in two categories — Healthcare Impact Award and Security Impact Award. The winners will be announced on July 5. In addition, we were a finalist in the 2022 Microsoft Security Excellence Awards for Security MSSP (Managed Security Service Provider) of the Year. BlueVoyant was also named as one of Microsoft’s top 150 managed security partners, an elite honor given that Microsoft has hundreds of thousands of partners, according to the company.

These accolades highlight our deep Microsoft expertise. In May, BlueVoyant announced that that we are key design partner for Microsoft’s three new security services, including Microsoft Security Experts for hunting, a proactive threat hunting expert service; Microsoft Security Experts for XDR, a new hunting service that extends beyond endpoint hunting; and Microsoft Enterprise Security Services for customers looking for more tailored, hands-on help with security posture management, modernization and proactive hunting.

With hundreds of Microsoft Sentinel deployments, we have learned customers want to maximize the features and benefits of a cloud native SIEM, so BlueVoyant authored a Microsoft Sentinel best practices guide.

In addition to BlueVoyant’s award-winning Core™: MDR (Managed Detection & Response) for internal network security, as part of our Elements platform BlueVoyant offers full-spectrum cyber defense. Also included in Elements are Terrain™: 3PR (Third-Party Cyber Risk Management), which rapidly identifies and resolves critical cybersecurity issues in third-party ecosystems; Sky™: DRP (Digital Risk Protection), which detects and eliminates cyber threats on the deep, dark, open web; and Liquid™: PS (Professional Services), in which experts help organizations improve their security posture and respond to incidents. Each element can be deployed as an independent solution or together as a full-spectrum cyber defense platform.

Thank you to Microsoft for the honor, and thank you to our customers for trusting BlueVoyant for your security needs.
