Illusive Wins Identity Trailblazer Prize at the Microsoft Security 20/20 Awards

We are thrilled and honored to have been recognized by Microsoft and our peers in MISA as the Identity Trailblazer winner in the 2nd annual Microsoft Security 20/20 awards. Winning this award makes the entire Illusive team proud of our collaborative journey with Microsoft, and we are also grateful to our customers, who have been tremendously supportive of our partnership.

The Identity Trailblazer is focused on partners who drive major identity-related initiatives and educate the market on how to protect identities. The are many facets to protecting identities and we at Illusive believe that one of the most difficult challenges faced by organizations is protecting privileged identities from being used by attackers once an organization is compromised.

Illusive provides an innovative approach to solving these challenges by looking at an organization from the perspective of an attacker to visualize attack surface exposure, identify and remediate risky credentials from network to cloud, and employ Active Defense capabilities that can disrupt an attacker (or red team!) trying to move within an organization. Illusive provides a broad set of integrations across Microsoft 365 Defender, and protecting privileged identities is foundational to defending organizations against human-operated attacks. Illusive for Azure Active Directory gives organizations the tools they need to protect privileged user identities from attacker abuse:

  • Security & threat visibility on Active Directory and Azure Active Directory
  • Visualizes and automates the discovery and mitigation of overprivileged identities, misconfigurations, and shadow admins
  • Detects insiders attempting to leverage policy gaps between Enterprise Active Directory and Azure Active Directory

As the awards show hosts Maria Thomson and Rani Lofstrom described during the ceremony – we cannot do this alone. We are privileged to be surrounded by outstanding peers who are all helping to solve cyber challenges faced by our industry and would like to salute the other vendors nominated in this category.
