NEW YORK, March 16, 2023 – BlueVoyant, a cybersecurity company that illuminates, validates, and remediates internal and external risks in one platform, today announced that Microsoft has named Director of Product Management, Mona Ghadiri as a Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for Microsoft Security. This accolade honors technology experts who contribute to the industry’s success by sharing their knowledge and helping the community.

With more than 3,000 awardees worldwide, and just over 100 Security MVPs, this group represents a highly select group of experts that Microsoft considers the technology’s best and brightest. MVPs share a deep commitment to community and a willingness to help others.

As Director of Product Management, Ghadiri leads strategy, research, and design for BlueVoyant’s Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services, which monitors clients’ security estate 24x7 to help them stay ahead of the latest cyber threats. Ghadiri’s strong product management background has kept BlueVoyant focused on both customer satisfaction and research and development. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree from Grinnell College and a Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

“Mona’s technology leadership and passion have helped bolster BlueVoyant’s growth and development while also aiding the Microsoft community in staying ahead of the latest attack tactics from cyber criminals,” said Milan Patel, global head of managed security services (MSS) at BlueVoyant. “I am excited to see her success and dedication recognized by Microsoft.”

Of the award, Ghadiri said, “I am honored to be named a Microsoft MVP. Microsoft and BlueVoyant recognize that cybersecurity is a team sport. We look forward to continuing to work closely with Microsoft to deliver the very best in technology and defense to our joint clients.”

Ghadiri’s award is among a long list of recognition BlueVoyant has received from Microsoft. The company was recently named a finalist for Security MSSP (managed security service provider) of the Year in the Microsoft Excellence Awards 2023. In 2022, BlueVoyant was honored as the Microsoft Security U.S. Partner of the Year, achieved Microsoft verified Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR) solution status, was a finalist in the Microsoft Canada Impact Awards in two categories — Healthcare Impact Award and Security Impact Award — and was one of Microsoft’s top 150 managed security partners.
