Solutionary's MAPP collaboration provides vulnerability information in advance of Microsoft's monthly security update release. The relationship will make it possible to anticipate emerging threats and provide mutual customers with maximum protections.
"Based on our years of experience providing managed security and compliance services to organizations of all sizes, protecting all layers and components of the IT infrastructure, Solutionary has excellent visibility into security threats as they are emerging," said Don Gray, Solutionary's chief security strategist. "MAPP's valuable insight, infused with our experience and solutions, enables our SERT (Security Engineering and Research Team) to act quickly and create efficient countermeasures. The partnership with Microsoft will further enhance our current SERT efforts and provide our clients with maximum security intelligence and protection against both internal and external Microsoft-targeted threats."
"There's more to the MSRC than security updates - we're working to protect customers from emerging threats" said Mark Miller, director of Microsoft's Trustworthy Computing product management. "The Microsoft Active Protections Program is one example of how Microsoft is continuing to work with partners to help better protect our mutual customers and deliver some of the world's best security response."
