Kivu Consulting, Inc. has recently teamed up with Microsoft to provide cybersecurity solutions that help organizations across all industries fight against cybercrime and build resilience.
The strategic partnership aims to collaborate and combine the strengths of both parties to reduce the business risk of cybercrime.
As cybercrime continues to pose a significant threat to organizations worldwide, Kivu and Microsoft recognize the need to pool their talent and intelligence to provide more impact on cybersecurity issues.
“Cybercrime will never stop. We have to partner, pool talent, combine intelligence and work together with our public sector colleagues to protect organizations from cyber threats. Our alliance with Microsoft Security combines our strengths to have more impact on almost any imaginable cybersecurity issue,” said Shane Sims, CEO of Kivu Consulting, Inc.
By working together, Kivu and Microsoft will be able to respond to customer cyberattacks more efficiently. Kivu will now view Microsoft as the premier option for post-breach remediation services when Kivu clients need them. On the other hand, Microsoft will see Kivu as a trusted partner to handle ransomware matters for customers seeking that service.
“Our mission is to secure the world so our customers can thrive. Security is a team sport, and incident response is one of the most important areas for industry leaders to come together in collaboration,” said Kelly Bissell, CVP of Security Services at Microsoft.
“We look forward to working with Kivu and other partners to help customers be safe and secure against all cyberattacks. Customers can be confident that their IR needs will be addressed so their business can thrive.”
Through their partnership, the companies will combine their cybersecurity solutions powered by each company’s software, decades of threat intelligence, and insurance/legal/government relationships that will accelerate an organization’s journey to cyber resiliency and reduce business risk to cybercrime.
