Portnox, a leading provider of cloud-native unified access control solutions, has announced its acceptance into the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA) signalling its commitment to enhance global cybersecurity cooperation. MISA is a coalition consisting of premier Microsoft security partners, independent software vendors (ISVs), and managed security service providers (MSSPs) offering solutions integrated with Microsoft Security products aimed at more efficient protection of Microsoft customers from cyber threats.

Portnox's CEO, Denny LeCompte, underscored the significance of this move, stating, "Joining MISA marks a significant milestone in Portnox's journey. Collaborating with Microsoft enables us to integrate our innovative network access control technology with Microsoft Intune and a potential host of other robust security solutions from Microsoft. This synergy not only enhances our capability to offer superior protection against evolving cyber threats but also aligns with our commitment to providing our customers with cutting-edge security solutions."

Membership in the MISA enables Portnox to strengthen its services by forging closer ties with Microsoft security personnel, consequently gaining access to the latest security intelligence and insights. This collaborative approach will drive Portnox to optimise its solutions for increased interoperability with Microsoft products, hence providing seamless and enhanced security for mutual clients.

Maria Thomson, Director of MISA, expressed her thoughts on Portnox's acceptance into the coalition, saying, "The Microsoft Intelligent Security Association has grown into a vibrant ecosystem comprised of the most reliable and trusted security vendors across the globe. Our members, like Portnox, share Microsoft's commitment to collaboration within the cybersecurity community to improve our customers ability to predict, detect, and respond to security threats faster."

As a member of MISA, Portnox continues to exhibit its dedication to cybersecurity excellence and its unwavering efforts to offer all-encompassing zero-trust security solutions that meet the changing security needs of businesses worldwide. For Portnox, joining MISA thus represents a significant step in its journey to improve its security offerings as it continues to pursue security collaborations with other industry leaders.

The collaboration between Portnox and Microsoft via MISA underscores a shared commitment to confront the ever-evolving landscape of cybersecurity threats head-on. By leveraging the fruits of this collaboration, both organisations aim to develop stronger and smarter security solutions, with the aim of providing a more secure digital environment for their customers.
