A Microsoft Partner Unlike any Other

As companies work toward enterprise security, Ascent helps maximize your current Microsoft investment while staying ahead of threats. As a Managed Partner, we work with Microsoft throughout their customers’ entire security journey — from evolving customers’ cybersecurity posture and modernizing product sets, to guidance on their Zero Trust journey. Since our inception, we have built processes to navigate Microsoft incentive programs and drive successful deployments.
Ascent’s ability to fluently speak the Microsoft language comes directly from our leadership and consulting teams’ experience. With roles previously held in the field and corporate, Ascent proudly carries over 100 years of combined Microsoft experience. This deep understanding of the ecosystem enables seamless communication throughout Microsoft’s organization and its products.

Customers chose Ascent because of our security-first approach. Our specializations include Identity and Access Management, Information Protection and Governance, Threat Protection, and Adoption and Change Management — but we didn’t stop there. As a Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA) Partner and Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP), we’re uniquely positioned to defend against the risks of today and tomorrow by collaborating and gaining intelligence within this association of experts.
