Microsoft demonstrates a continued focus on improving security both within the Microsoft solution space and beyond.

With the recent acquisition of ReFirm Labs, Microsoft continues to strengthen its security offerings in the IoT, OT, and firmware spaces. These capabilities will allow Microsoft solutions to better encompass devices that form the “intelligent edge” of modern computing environments.

With a record $350 million in cryptocurrency ransomware payments made in 2020 and a continued increasing trend for 2021, it is imperative that organizations continue their security journeys.

By integrating this functionality with Azure Defender for IoT, organizations can better discover and assess threats to firmware and related subsystems and mitigate those risks through cloud-based firmware update management and delivery.


Maximum ROI from your Investments

This investment and others being made by Microsoft demonstrate the continued focus on improving security both within the Microsoft solution space and beyond, thanks to holistic integration capabilities with third-party SaaS and other solutions.
