“The global pandemic has fundamentally changed cybercrime, forcing businesses to recalibrate both their short and long-term cyber security risk to protect the mission-critical assets in their environment,” comments Milan Patel, Co-Founder and Global Head of Managed Security Services at BlueVoyant. “We are thrilled to be recognized as a winner for the Microsoft Security 20/20 Partner awards. This prestigious accolade validates the true value we bring to our joint customers by providing Microsoft end-users and integration partners with a one-stop cyber security solution that maximizes and extends their investment in Microsoft tools, keeps their critical data in its native environment, reduces cloud consumption, mitigates risk and takes their security posture to the next level.”
