Chorus attain third Microsoft Security Advanced Specialisation

We are thrilled to have been awarded our third Microsoft Advanced Specialisation in Security for Information Protection & Governance.

This achievement adds to our two other Security Advanced Specialisations in Threat Protection and Identity & Access Management.

How do partners attain an Advanced Specialisation?

Advanced Specialisations are the level above a Microsoft Gold Competency to show deep expertise and experience within specific Microsoft service areas. Microsoft describe them as a PhD, compared to a master’s degree.

To attain these Advanced Specialisations, we must:

  • Hold Microsoft Gold Security competency
  • Have at least six members of staff passing the relevant Administrator exams for the Advanced Specialisation
  • Meet high performance thresholds, that show proven experience in successfully delivering the relevant Microsoft workloads (such as Azure Active Directory, Microsoft Information Protection, Microsoft 365 Defender)
  • Have three approved customer references

What does it mean to our customers?

These Specialisations help to show our proven expertise and experience in:

  • Information Protection & Governance
    Showing our capabilities with Microsoft’s compliance and governance solutions, such as Microsoft Information Protection, to help organisations adopt robust information lifecycle management and governance.
  • Threat Protection
    Proving our expertise in Microsoft’s advanced threat protection solutions within Microsoft 365 Defender. We help organisations adopt Microsoft 365 E5 Security to implement a modern Zero Trust security model to better protect against today’s threats.
  • Identity & Access Management
    Demonstrating best practice adoption and implementation of Azure Active Directory for robust identity protection and access management, which is particularly vital with identity being a key cornerstone of modern Zero Trust protection.

By working with a Microsoft partner that holds Advanced Specialisations, customers have the confidence that they are working with an organisation that has proven capabilities that have been verified and approved by Microsoft.
