Integrity360 targets international growth following expansion of its Microsoft security services

Integrity360, one of the leading pan-European cyber security specialists, has announced the expansion of its portfolio of Microsoft security services as it continues on an international growth trajectory. The company plans to roll out the enhanced suite of services across Ireland, the UK, Bulgaria, Italy, Spain, and the Nordic region.

As well as the expansion of services and associated tools and processes, the company has invested in the training and development of over 30 employees. It has also rolled out product and platform development and integration, as well as proprietary threat detection content for the Microsoft ecosystem and threat response playbook production.

The enlarged portfolio incorporates professional services for the assessment, design and implementation, and ongoing management of Microsoft security solutions. These will deliver enhanced protection for customers across the areas of threat protection, cloud security, identity and access management, and data security.

Integrity360 is rolling out these specialist services amid increasing demand from customers to help optimise their security posture and configurations, maximising the value of the security toolsets available within their Microsoft licensing investments. The services are available across all of the main Microsoft Security product families, including Microsoft Sentinel, Microsoft Defender XDR, Microsoft Defender for Cloud, Microsoft Entra, and Microsoft Purview. Due to Microsoft’s prominence in the security, productivity, and collaboration spaces, Integrity360 estimates these offerings to be relevant for at least 75% of organisations of all sizes across Europe.

Integrity360’s professional services team will provide guidance and direction to customers on how to maximise security features of the Microsoft ecosystem across users, systems, and applications. The team will also design and build security infrastructure in line with best practices, benefiting from existing Microsoft environments and investments to maximise the return for customers.

As well as enhanced access to resources to help optimise the use and value of Microsoft products, organisations will benefit from enhanced protection against cyber security risks such as ransomware, data theft, insider risk, and zero-day attacks.

Integrity360 is also expanding its suite of Microsoft managed services with a comprehensive managed extended detection and response (XDR) offering. This new solution aims to boost organisations’ cyber security postures in the face of continually evolving threats and relieve the pressure on in-house security teams with proactive 24/7 monitoring, enhanced detection, and rapid containment of threats.

Underpinning these new services, Integrity360 has attained designations within the Microsoft AI Cloud Partner Programme. The company has been named a Solutions Partner for Security which validates Integrity360’s specialist capabilities in using the Microsoft security portfolio to secure organisations’ environments including Microsoft 365, multi-operating-system endpoints, multi-cloud environments, and third-party infrastructure.

It has also been named as a Solutions Partner for Modern Work which recognises its expertise across Microsoft 365 applications such as Outlook, Teams, SharePoint, and OneDrive, essential for understanding how to secure such environments.

Integrity360 has expanded its offering to include services across the full Microsoft security portfolio, and with the increased scope of its new Managed XDR service powered by Microsoft SIEM+XDR, it has further advanced its specialisation particularly in the area of Threat Protection.

Brian Martin, Director of Product Management, Integrity360, said: “Integrity360 is delighted to expand our comprehensive suite of services across Microsoft’s security portfolio. We are excited to bring our Microsoft security specialisation and cyber security specialist expertise to our customers. Furthermore, our new partner designations will help us fulfil our Microsoft services vision and cement our position in the security marketplace, while further growing our business.

“We expect great demand for Microsoft Threat Protection services, as it is an area in which many organisations lack the required skills and capabilities. In addition, due to the ongoing rapid adoption of cloud, we expect growing demand for services and support in securing cloud and hybrid environments. The area of data governance will also see continued growth due to ever-present regulatory and commercial concerns around information protection. Meanwhile, identity and access management will require additional support due to the rise of identity as the new perimeter due to remote and hybrid working models. Through our Microsoft security offerings, we will be able to meet this demand and better support our customers, wherever they are on the spectrum of cyber security maturity.”

Jim Leddy, Head of Technology, Cloud and Security, ffh Management Services, said: “We have been working with Integrity360 for a number of years across a range of their security offerings. When we made the decision to avail of the ever-expanding Microsoft security offering, it was reassuring to get advice, guidance, and support from security experts who not only knew our estate but understand the Microsoft security portfolio implicitly.”

Clare Hillis, Head of Channel Sales, Microsoft Ireland, said: “We welcome Integrity360’s investment and commitment to the Microsoft security portfolio. As cyberattacks increase their speed, scale, and sophistication, they demand a new approach to security and we look forward to further collaborating with Integrity360 and to help our mutual customers secure their environments, reduce risk, and get the most value from end-to-end security solutions.”
