Ontinue announced it has been named a finalist of the 2023 Microsoft Nonprofit Partner of the Year Award for its work in providing a strengthened security posture for a leading global humanitarian aid agency. The company was honored among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.
The Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards recognize Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered outstanding Microsoft-based applications, services, and devices during the past year. Awards were classified in various categories, with honorees chosen from a set of more than 4,200 submitted nominations from more than 100 countries worldwide. Ontinue was recognized for providing outstanding solutions and services as a Nonprofit Partner of the Year finalist for the company’s work with a leading global humanitarian aid agency.
Beginning in December 2022, Ontinue and Microsoft worked together to fortify the joint customer’s security posture, solve its lack of security staffing, and maximize its Microsoft Sentinel and other Microsoft security investments. The combination of Microsoft Sentinel and the advanced automation of the Ontinue ION MXDR service has dramatically reduced the number of incidents the customer faces, with ION automatically resolving up to 70% of incidents. With ION’s 24/7 protection in place, the agency’s IT staff has been freed to focus on supporting its employees and operations around the world, instead of constantly fighting threats.
The Nonprofit Partner of the Year Award recognizes a partner organization that excels at providing innovative services or solutions aligned to one of the Microsoft Nonprofit Industry Priority Scenarios: Know your Donors and Supporters, Deliver Effective Programming, Accelerate Mission Outcomes or the Microsoft Cloud for Non-profit; demonstrating thought leadership in their industry. Successful entrants will demonstrate strong growth in revenue and/or marquis customer wins aligned to the Microsoft Nonprofit Industry Priority Scenarios or the Microsoft Cloud for Nonprofit.
Ontinue ION uniquely delivers Nonstop SecOps with 24/7, always-on protection while increasing overall security program maturity, efficacy, and scalability. ION overcomes the shortcomings of traditional MDR solutions in several ground-breaking ways, including the first Microsoft Teams-based collaboration model for seamless real-time communication between SecOps, IT and all other security stakeholders.
