Forsyte I.T. Solutions joins Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA)

Forsyte I.T. Solutions (Forsyte), one of Microsoft’s leading security partners, along with its Guardian 365 security managed services, is now a member of the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA), an ecosystem of independent software vendors and managed security service providers that have integrated their solutions with Microsoft’s security technology to better defend against a world of increasing threats.

“Vigilance is the only response. The number of threats out there is larger than ever before – and everyone is a target – regardless of size or industry. You are a target of someone, somewhere, says Shihan Wijeyeratne, Forsyte’s General Manager of Managed Services.” Forsyte is proud to stand alongside Microsoft’s most reliable and trusted security software vendors across the globe to protect, detect, and respond to security threats amid growing security pressures.

What is MISA?

MISA was founded in 2018 to provide a space for premier cybersecurity companies to collaborate and better integrate their solutions across the digital landscape to defend against increasingly sophisticated, fast-moving threats. MISA raises the bar for security, compliance, and identity by validating partners and their solutions offered to customers. Forsyte now joins that global coalition of security partners to offer better security to organizations everywhere. As a member of MISA, Forsyte leverages Microsoft 365 security technology and helps customers connect the dots with best-in-class resources and Gartner magic quadrant solutions.
