Microsoft teams up with Cyberproof on new security services

Microsoft and Cyberproof will be joining forces to help develop Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR) capabilities

UST company CyberProof, which provides a cyber security platform and services, is collaborating with Microsoft to provide Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR) capabilities for Microsoft Security Services for Enterprise.

This partnership will use the human expertise and service delivery of MXDR providers such as CyberProof alongside internal Microsoft teams to extend threat detection and response across Microsoft 365 Defender and Microsoft Sentinel security solutions.

Yuval Wollman, President, CyberProof, said: “CyberProof shares Microsoft’s belief in the crucial importance of collaborating within the cybersecurity community to improve customers’ threat detection and response capabilities. As members of Microsoft’s partner community, we are now offering Managed XDR for Microsoft 365 Defender and Microsoft Sentinel in our portfolio.” He added, “CyberProof was among the first to deploy Microsoft Sentinel in a highly regulated, global enterprise, and today, our close partnership with Microsoft is expanding to address the increasing demand for Managed XDR services.”

Reducing cyber risks and improving detection

The expansion into this market by Microsoft provides validation of the significance of advanced MXDR services – which are growing rapidly. According to Gartner, 50% of organisations will be using MDR services for threat monitoring, detection, and response functions that offer threat containment and mitigation capabilities by 2025.

Founded in 2017, CyberProof helps customers reduce the cyber security risks associated with digital transformation. The CyberProof Defense Center platform runs natively on Microsoft Azure and integrates with the Microsoft Security stack. This enables CyberProof to help enterprises solve challenges as they scale their security operations – from log collection and analysis to proactively hunting for malicious threat activity.

CyberProof’s nation-state trained cybersecurity experts provide Managed XDR services and expertise for enterprises looking to migrate from legacy, on-premises security solutions to cloud-native security. 

According to Tony Velleca, Chief Executive Officer, CyberProof, “Our Managed XDR service offering indicates a shift in security operations supported by cloud-native technology. Forward-thinking CISOs are quickly discovering the many benefits of a cloud-native security architecture and we are helping them solve the most complex challenges as co-innovation partners with Microsoft.” 

“We are proud to work together with Microsoft as a part of Microsoft’s partner community and are excited about the process Microsoft is undergoing,” he concluded.
