Help AG becomes the MSSP partner of Microsoft

Help AG has become the Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) partner of Microsoft in the GCC. By partnering with Microsoft, Help AG will be able to provide services based on all Microsoft security products, including Microsoft Sentinel and Microsoft Defender, covering the domains of security management and identity, information, and threat protection.

Stephan Berner, Chief Executive Officer at Help AG, said “We are delighted to be named the MSSP Partner of Microsoft, the global leader in software. The partnership is a testament to our position as the leading Managed Security Service Provider in the region, and our continued efforts to provide the full spectrum of tailored cybersecurity services.”

He continued: “The modern cyberthreat landscape has made it essential to adopt an all-inclusive approach that covers security, compliance, identity, management, and privacy. As a pioneer proponent of the ‘service centric approach’, Help AG has been building offerings that customers can avail “as a service” based on state-of-the-art security platforms and tools. Help AG along with Microsoft now offers the world’s most comprehensive approach to security, as a part of ‘Help AG as a Service’, including solutions such as Microsoft Sentinel, Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps, Microsoft Defender for IoT, and Azure Active Directory Identity Protection.”

Help AG customers now have access to Microsoft Sentinel (formerly Azure Sentinel), the cloud native SIEM solution offering more than 100 solutions for data collection in a new content hub for easy discovery and deployment. Microsoft Sentinel will constitute a major component of Help AG’s upcoming Cloud SOC (Security Operations Center), along with offerings from other Help AG strategic vendors.

Help AG will also provide services based on Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps, a Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) that operates on multiple clouds; Microsoft Defender for IoT, which offers agentless network detection and response (NDR), working with diverse IoT, OT, and industrial control system (ICS) devices; and Azure Active Directory Identity Protection, which automates the detection and remediation of identity-based risks.

Incorporating Microsoft’s security solutions will expand and strengthen Help AG’s MSS offering further, which delivers flexible services combining security event management, infrastructure monitoring, and incident response either through remote or on-site response teams defined by strict SLAs.
