Valence Security Announces its Membership in the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA) to Extend the Reach of its SaaS Security Solutions
TEL AVIV, Israel--Valence Security, a leading SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM) vendor, has announced its membership in 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.
Valence's membership in MISA reflects its commitment to providing global enterprises with one of the most advanced SaaS security platforms available. As a member of MISA, Valence will be able to offer enhanced integrations with multiple Microsoft Security products, as well as other leading security vendors in the MISA ecosystem, that will further strengthen customers' ability to gain better visibility and control over risks associated with the distributed adoption and management of SaaS, SaaS-to-SaaS integrations, ungoverned external data sharing, unmanaged users, and misconfigurations.
"We are excited to be part of the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association," said Yoni Shohet, CEO and co-founder of Valence Security. "This collaboration enables us to leverage Microsoft's industry-leading security capabilities and provide our customers with even more powerful and comprehensive security solutions that keep them protected against the latest SaaS security threats, remediate SaaS security misconfigurations and place security guardrails to collaborate with business users."
Yoni continues, "By joining MISA, Valence deepens its relationship with Microsoft's best-in-suite set of cyber security products and its ecosystem of strategic security partners. Working together, we aim to strengthen our shared mission of increasing the cyber resilience of every business in a constantly evolving threat landscape."
In October of last year, Valence announced its integration with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) through Microsoft Graph, Azure AD (part of Microsoft Entra) audit logs and other Microsoft APIs. Through it Valence is now able to correlate multiple data sources to provide one viewpoint into all the Enterprise Applications, Service Principals, OAuth tokens and APIs that have access to Microsoft’s SaaS services. In addition, in April the Valence platform announced it now leverages Microsoft Azure AD risk signals for both human users and non-human service accounts.
“The Microsoft Intelligent Security Association has grown into a vibrant ecosystem comprised of the most reliable and trusted security vendors across the globe,” said Maria Thomson, Microsoft Intelligent Security Association Lead, “Our members, like Valence Security, share Microsoft’s commitment to collaboration within the cybersecurity community to improve our customers’ ability to predict, detect, and respond to security threats faster.”
Valence's membership in MISA is a significant step in enhancing its already robust security features. With this relationship, Valence can offer its customers an even greater level of protection and the ability to better quantify the impact of SaaS risks.
