Continuing our community call series on Microsoft funded security assessments, our January 16 call will explore how the solution helps you provide comprehensive security offerings customers need to stay safe.

Data breaches and cyberthreats are increasing at an alarming rate, placing customers’ digital assets and day-to-day line of business at tremendous risk. There’s no better time to help customers protect against data breaches and other cyberthreats as a trusted security advisor. Microsoft is here to help you add or expand your security offerings across four critical security pillars:

Microsoft funded engagements help you deliver real value for your customers and reinforce your position as a trusted advisor by providing actionable insights specific to each unique environment. You’ll be able to make more informed recommendations and provide the right solution for your customers’ needs, ultimately building closer, more profitable long-term relationships.

The good news is that Microsoft has continued to offer funded assessment initiatives that partners can use and build upon to engage customers and drive security awareness. You can use these Security Sales Plays to target the security needs and questions customers may have and at the same time receive funding to help drive professional services engagements.
