Nixu has received the End-to-end Security Partner of the Year award from Microsoft. The basis for the award was the breadth of Nixu’s cybersecurity solutions based on Microsoft technology, as well as Nixu's long-term partnership with its clients, extensively utilizing Microsoft products. The cooperation provides both companies a competitive advantage in Finland, and Nixu aims to extend this successful approach to all countries where it operates.
The award is based on Nixu's strategic and holistic approach to driving the development of cybersecurity solutions together with Microsoft.
"At the core of Nixu's mission and goals is to secure business resilience and support its manifestation in our clients' cybersecurity. It is therefore important for us to be able to protect our clients' entire IT environments, from endpoints to networks, servers, and business applications, whether they be in the cloud or one’s own data centers, with solutions based on Microsoft technology," says Jan Mickos, Service Area Lead, Managed Services at Nixu.
"Nixu has done a truly convincing job for our customers in the field of information security by ensuring the business continuity of companies and communities with its Microsoft technology-based solutions. The win for the End-to-End Security Partner of the Year goes deservedly to Nixu's top talent team", says Mervi Airaksinen, Managing Director, Microsoft Finland.
In an era of ever-evolving cyber threats, companies face increasing security risks. Nixu's Threat Intelligence team has noted ransomware as one of the biggest threats to many companies' business practices. The partnership leading to this award enabled Nixu to meet this challenge. The goal has been zero cybersecurity incidents on client systems and services, ensuring business resilience, transparency, and agility.
The company has strategically decided to invest in the Microsoft partnership and ecosystem, especially on the Managed Services side. Nixu has successfully leveraged Microsoft's partner programs comprehensively and effectively for the benefit of its clients, with good results.
"This significant recognition bestowed upon us is an indication that we have made the right strategic choices over time. It has been exciting to see the evolution of Microsoft's cybersecurity capabilities and technology. Combined with Nixu's expertise, they allow us to deliver world-class cybersecurity services to our clients," said Mickos.
"Our goal is to win again next year. We also want to build upon this excellent experience and the results it has yielded, and expand our Microsoft partnership to all Nixu countries."
