As we approach the launch of Microsoft’s new partner program on October 1st, 2022, the race to Microsoft’s number one Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) has begun. Difenda’s cutting-edge technical operations and commitment to cybersecurity expertise positions us as the front runner for Microsoft’s number one MSSP in North America.  

In cybersecurity, slow and steady do not win the race. Difenda’s technical team is cutting edge and is creating innovative services powered by the Microsoft Security ecosystem, that continues to keep the customer journey front of mind. 

But it’s not just our innovative services that set us apart. Difenda is changing the game in cybersecurity by altering course from prioritizing MDR to now strategically working with customers end-to-end.  

“Security is constantly advancing to meet the needs of our customers, says Derek Nugent, VP Revenue at Difenda. “It is important to understand where customers are specifically so we can help them with their unique needs at that point and then get them where they want to go. For us, that means moving beyond managed detection and response services to transforming security operations with End-to-End Microsoft Security solutions. 

The only MSSP, Microsoft Security Partner, to Offer 8 Managed and Professional Security services on the Azure Marketplace. 

Difenda is now the only MSSP, Microsoft Security Partner to offer eight managed and professional security services on the Azure Marketplace. These offers cover the entire Microsoft Security Product Suite to meet customers wherever they are in their cybersecurity journey. Current offerings include:

Our product development takes a customer-led, outcome-driven approach. Difenda, as a Microsoft partner, is one of the few vendors exclusively focused on offering MDR, SIEM, EDR and professional services in partnership with Microsoft. We’ve seen a greater reliance on Microsoft’s offerings across our customer base and in turn, a need to manage it. “In choosing Difenda, customers get the best of both worlds: industry-leading cloud infrastructure, and an unmatched 24/7/365 security partner to manage it on their behalf, says Derek Nugent.
