Cloud Direct secures three Microsoft security Advanced Specialisations

We’re excited to announce that Cloud Direct secured the Threat Protection, Identity and Access Management, and Information Protection and Governance Advanced Specialisations.  

We’ve managed to secure not one, but three more Microsoft Advanced Specialisations! Achieving these Advanced Specialisations highlights our Microsoft Security knowledge, experience, and expertise. 

The Advanced Specialisations  are awarded following a review by Microsoft of our technical expertise and project experience with various Microsoft Security Technologies:  

  • Threat Protection Advanced Specialisation: Microsoft Threat Protection, Microsoft Cloud App Security and Sentinel Workloads 
  • Information Protection and Governance Advanced Specialisation: Microsoft Information Protection workloads 
  • Identity and Access Management Advanced Specialisation: Microsoft Identity workloads with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) 

“Delighted to have achieved three new ‘Advanced Security Specialisations’ from Microsoft.  It’s a great validation of the investment Cloud Direct continues to make in security – and adds nicely to our existing Sentinel SIEM/SOAR capability. There’s no doubt that security is increasingly at the forefront of customers minds – especially as they centre on digital and cloud. Well done team Cloud Direct for this relentless and focused learning.” – Brett Raynes, CEO 

Achieving an advanced specialisation is a rigorous process. There are a stringent set of requirements that must be assessed and verified by Microsoft and a third-party vendor. Only partners that meet the criteria below can earn various advanced specialisations: 

  • Be a Microsoft Gold Partner 
  • Have skilled staff with the appropriate qualifications 
  • Have proven experience in Security delivery 
  • Achieve required performance thresholds 

Theses advanced specialisations are in addition to the existing advanced specialisations we have been awarded by Microsoft – Teams Calling, Azure Virtual Desktop and Azure Specialist for ISV.
