NIL achieves the Microsoft Gold Security Partner status

The Microsoft Gold Security Partners status recognizes the effectiveness of NIL’s information risk management solutions, as well as a high knowledge and competence level regarding Microsoft cyber defense technologies.

NIL, part of the Conscia Group, has been named Microsoft Gold Security Partner, Microsoft’s highest partner status in the cybersecurity field. The title confirms the competencies and capabilities in Microsoft’s information security technologies and the effectiveness of NIL’s solutions for preventing and mitigating advanced cyberattacks.

Microsoft technologies are integrated into virtually every business environment, and NIL wants to provide these organizations with the optimal cyber defense in the technological and business sense. At the same time, Microsoft technologies play an important role in our information security solutions portfolio. That is why we are very proud of this achievement, as it proves once again that NIL is a partner that can provide all organizations with the highest level of protection for their data and business,” said Beno Ceglar, CEO at NIL.

According to the assessment of our Security Operations Center (SOC) and various independent evaluators, Microsoft is one of the leading names in the cyber security field. It addresses the field comprehensively, and their Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solutions stand out in terms of efficiency. Combined with some other tools, they can be expanded into one of the most comprehensive and modular Extended Detection and Response (XDR) solutions,” said Robert Turnšek, CTO at NIL. He added that “At NIL, we offer companies everything they need for effective cyber defense. That is why we are constantly upgrading our offer and competencies both vertically and horizontally. Vertically, to cover the full range of technology and the business-related cyber risks. And horizontally to master different technologies and solution details of various vendors. The Microsoft Gold Security Partner status is important in recognizing the competences of the provider in the Microsoft security solutions field. Thank you to all customers for your trust and sincere congratulations to our team of security experts.
