Early access to Microsoft vulnerability information allows the company to provide updated protections to customers faster
ALISO VIEJO, Calif. – [May 17, 2022] – Syxsense, a global leader in IT and security management solutions, today announced it has joined an elite group of cybersecurity software providers partnering with Microsoft to receive early vulnerability information through the Microsoft Active Protections Program (MAPP). This partnership further builds on capabilities Syxsense already provides when helping customers scan, patch, and secure endpoints. As a member of MAPP, Syxsense will receive early access to threat intelligence, allowing faster deployment of protections, and enabling customers to stay even further ahead of emerging threats.
“The threat landscape changes and evolves at an incredibly rapid pace, so providing our customers with the most up to date information is paramount when working to stay ahead of new attacks,” said Ashley Leonard, Founder and CEO of Syxsense. “As a member of MAPP, we’re now able to combine Microsoft’s early vulnerability information with our instant endpoint detection and prevention capabilities to provide customers with a more comprehensive picture of their threat environment. This ultimately helps them strengthen their security posture when scanning for vulnerabilities, managing patch cycles, dealing with endpoint compliance and more.”
“Syxsense is a valuable addition to our list of trusted security partners in the Microsoft Active Protections Program,” said Al Brown, Senior Security Strategist, Microsoft Security Response Center. “The visibility insights and management capabilities gained from their unified endpoint management technology along with the early access to threat intelligence they now have enables them to offer their customers some of the most robust defense strategies in the industry.”
Syxsense recently announced Syxsense Enterprise™, the world’s first IT management and endpoint security solution that delivers real-time vulnerability monitoring and instant remediation for every endpoint across an organization’s entire network environment. Syxsense Enterprise combines Syxsense Secure, Manage, and Mobile Device Manager, and then layers on a powerful workflow automation tool called Syxsense Cortex™, to deliver a completely unified platform that scans and manages all endpoints, resolves problems in real-time, and reduces the risks associated with system misconfigurations. This enables organizations to better predict, identify, and remediate vulnerabilities.
