Ascent Solutions today announced it won the Security Trailblazer award in the Microsoft Security Excellence Awards 2023. The company’s achievements have helped it rise to the top of the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA), an ecosystem of independent software vendors (ISVs) and managed security service providers (MSSPs) that have integrated their security products and services with Microsoft’s security technology.

Award winners demonstrated excellence across security, identity, management, compliance and privacy during the past 12 months.

“Unbelievably proud Ascent’s innovation is recognized at such an influential level,” JD Harris, Chairman and CEO, said. “For Microsoft to call us security pioneers reinforces our goal: revolutionizing security as we know it. We’re on a mission to save the world from cyber threats, innovate answers to the toughest security problems, and secure the most vulnerable. Humbled Microsoft recognizes and shares our goals.”

At the Microsoft Security Excellence 2023 Awards on April 24, 2023, Microsoft announced award winners in 11 categories honoring partner trailblazers, solution innovators, customer and technology champions, and changemakers. This is the fourth year awards were given. Ascent Solutions won the Security Trailblazer award.

“It is my privilege to acknowledge this year’s Microsoft Security Excellence awards recipients, who continually inspire us with their commitment to building a safer world for all,” Vasu Jakkal, CVP, Microsoft Security said. “Their solutions, services, innovative spirit, and customer focus are integral to this goal. Security is a team sport, and we are proud to partner with our MISA community. My warmest congratulations to all the awardees.”

MISA was established to bring together Microsoft leaders, ISVs, and MSSPs to work together to defeat security threats and make the world a safer place. In conjunction with Microsoft Stakeholders, MISA members voted on the winners of the Microsoft Security Excellence Awards, giving them a chance to recognize the efforts of their peers and their commitment to making the world a more secure place.
