HUNTSVILLE – Summit 7 has earned another advanced specialization in Microsoft Threat Protection. The Huntsville-based company is a Microsoft Gold Partner and the 2022 Microsoft US Compliance Partner of the Year,
“The addition of the Microsoft Threat Protection Advanced Specialization signals to our customers that we are committed to providing the best possible security solutions, said Scott Edwards, CEO at Summit 7. “It also validates our expertise within the Microsoft Ecosystem.
“The threat landscape is constantly changing, and Summit 7 is properly positioned to continue the fight for the security of the DoD supply chain.”
To earn this designation, Microsoft partners must demonstrate deep knowledge, extensive experience, and proven success in deploying Microsoft Threat Protection, Microsoft Cloud App Security, or Microsoft Sentinel workloads, the company said.
Advanced specializations are verified by Microsoft and enable companies to further identify vetted partners. This is the seventh advanced specialization earned by Summit 7 since the organization’s inception, coming on the heels of winning the 2022 Microsoft U.S. Compliance Partner of The Year. Summit 7 provides cybersecurity and compliance solutions for the aerospace and defense industry.
Jason Batchelor, chief compliance officer at Summit 7, said the addition of the Threat Protection Advanced Specialization shows customers his company knows security and compliance in the Microsoft government cloud.
“In the past, we’ve seen contractors who might be averse to cloud adoption to meet current data protection requirements because of issues like threat protection,” he said. “Now, organizations in the defense industrial base are moving to the cloud for a myriad of reasons.”
