TORONTO- Difenda Inc., a leading global managed security services provider (MSSP), is pleased to announce that two of its offerings have achieved ‘Co-sell Ready’ status in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. After working closely with Microsoft for over 2 years to develop and promote the Azure Sentinel platform, this milestone validates Difenda’s product experience and Microsoft‘s trust in Difenda to implement and manage security operations using their advanced security platform.

The two offers now available from the Microsoft marketplace (links below) include: Azure Sentinel Implementation -delivered by Difenda’s trusted professional services team- and Difenda MDR, a 24x7x365 managed detection and response service powered by the Azure Sentinel platform and Defender.

For organizations just getting started or those looking to maximize their existing Azure Sentinel investment, Difenda’s platform engineering team provides unmatched experience designing and configuring Azure Sentinel to maximize visibility, reduce operational effort with automations, and save money by reducing event data bloat. Microsoft trusts Difenda with some of their largest customer projects including a 2021 Azure Sentinel implementation for a 100,000+ seat enterprise in Asia.

Beyond implementation services, Difenda’s second co-sell offer provides ongoing security operations service with its managed detection and response service, Difenda MDR. Powered by the Azure Sentinel platform, Difenda’s expert threat hunting team seeks out and contains advanced threats quickly using automated response capabilities which can be integrated with non-Microsoft security technologies, such as next-gen firewalls, and other Microsoft solutions such as Microsoft Defender for Endpoint and Microsoft Cloud App Security (MCAS). Difenda further enriches the native threat intelligence and machine learning features of Azure Sentinel with more than 100 additional proprietary and open-source threat feeds.

In addition to this new achievement, Difenda maintains industry cybersecurity certifications along with being a Microsoft Security Gold Partner and a pending approval for meeting the new Threat Protection Advanced Specialization.
