Customers often wonder if they are heavily invested in Microsoft Information Security solutions and tools, how do other partner products enhance or provide advantages over Microsoft’s core capabilities? Enterprise platforms, including Microsoft’s, deliver a wide range of apps to provide business-critical capabilities and rich functionality to their customers. However, it is impossible for one vendor to successfully provide the full depth and range of capabilities that is often needed to satisfy every customer requirement. For this reason, value-added resellers and independent software vendors (ISVs) have long played a prominent role in the information technology (IT) industry, providing additional capabilities to augment core product functionality.  

Microsoft has taken this approach, developing a large partner ecosystem of complementary third party vendors that fill in any gaps and enhance the capabilities their products provide. While there can be some capability overlap, these third-party products generally enrich and enhance the customer experience and the value of their Microsoft investments. Nucleus Cyber’s advanced information protection and compliance solution, NC Protect, falls into this category.

As a Microsoft Partner, we work closely with Microsoft’s security product groups to extend and enhance their out-of-the-box (OOTB) capabilities to provide customers with more tailored information protection in Microsoft apps.  

The complementary nature of our solution is why we were invited to become one of the first partners to gain membership into the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA), an ecosystem of ISVs that have integrated with Microsoft’s solutions to better defend against a world of increasing data exposure.  

Our membership, which required us to technically validate our integration with Microsoft’s products, recognizes NC Protect for the value it provides to customers beyond the OOTB Microsoft solution.
