This is the third blog in a series on enablement resources by Kymber Lowe, Senior Director of Global Partner Enablement at Microsoft. This entry will explore the Security solution area and relevant resources. Partsoneandtwoof the series are available on the Microsoft Partner blog.
Security is a remarkably dynamic solution area, with evolving technologies, emerging threats, and reimagined workforces constantly creating new security challenges. Keeping identities, devices, applications, and data secure is a top priority for organizations—and there are many opportunities for partners to provide customized security solutions or additional IT capacity for customers. Perhaps the greatest opportunity is helping companies secure their shifts to remote or hybrid work. Protecting a remote workforce often involves building cloud security systems, which can offer increased flexibility and scalability but may require additional staffing to monitor and mitigate threats.
Microsoft has a range of tools designed to keep customers secure, including Microsoft Defender services, BitLocker, and the ability to manage mobile devices with Intune. To help partners maximize their value to customers, we have developed several enablement resources for the security space—from marketing strategies and sales support to technical training. Additionally, partners can access a wealth of information and insights by consulting ourcloud practice playbooks—developed by partners for partners. Relevant to the security solution area are our Secure Remote Work and Security playbooks.
