The company was honored among a global field of industry leaders that demonstrated success across the security landscape during the past 12 months.

OCG has been honing our Zero Trust messaging for several years, with customer audiences ranging from CISOs and other C-level executives to IT Managers,” said Steve Brugger, OCG CEO. “We have combined that messaging with the Microsoft Azure security strategy value proposition at a workload level. The results have changed our customer’s view of what OCG brings to the table, which is reflected in the size and scope of our engagements and the success of our Azure security-focused managed services. We are honored to be recognized once again by MISA for the work we do and to be in the excellent company of all of the worldwide MISA finalists.

At the Microsoft Security Excellence Awards on April 24, 2023, Microsoft will celebrate finalists in 11 award categories honoring partner trailblazers, solution innovators, customer and technology champions, and changemakers. This is the fourth year Microsoft is recognizing partners for their outstanding work in the security landscape. All finalists are members 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.

I’m very pleased to extend my warmest congratulations to this year’s finalists for the Microsoft Security Excellence Awards,” said Maria Thomson, Microsoft Intelligent Security Association Lead. “These are presented each year to recognize the outstanding achievements of our Microsoft Intelligent Security Association members as they improve customers’ ability to identify and respond to security threats. Our community is made up of the most reliable and trusted security vendors worldwide. This year we received hundreds of quality submissions from partners and Microsoft stakeholders, so this year’s finalists stood out in a crowd of exceptional talent. It’s my pleasure to acknowledge and celebrate their work over the past year.

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. The industry veterans in MISA and Microsoft will vote to select the winners of the Microsoft Security Excellence Awards, providing an opportunity for colleagues to honor their peers for delivering exceptional work to our shared customers.
