IronNet Joins Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA)

MCLEAN, Va.-- IronNet, Inc. (NYSE: IRNT) (“IronNet”), an innovative leader transforming cybersecurity through Collective Defense, announced it has joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA), a nomination-only association, demonstrating IronNet’s long-term commitment with Microsoft to deliver better security solutions to customers.

As a Microsoft partner, IronNet, through its innovative Collective Defense platform, empowers Microsoft customers to execute safe and seamless migrations to the cloud amidst the increasing volume of highly-aggressive and sophisticated cyberattacks.

“As we continue to see an increase in malicious cyberattacks against both the public and private sectors, we are pleased to join the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association to advance how we defend together,” said IronNet Founder and Co-CEO, General (Ret.) Keith Alexander. “MISA’s mission directly aligns with our mission at IronNet: to develop integrated and innovative ways to better defend together against an evolving cyber threat landscape.”

IronNet’s bi-directional integration with Microsoft Azure Sentinel enables customers to better protect their on-premises, cloud, or hybrid infrastructure. This integration builds on IronNet’s Azure virtual sensor, which provides on-premises protection of cloud workloads as well as IronNet’s threat-detection integration with Microsoft 365. By using anonymized threat information gathered by both IronNet and Microsoft, IronNet’s industry-leading Network Detection and Response (NDR) and Collective Defense capabilities equip enterprise customers with best-in-class tools to manage heightened security challenges brought on by accelerated digital transformation.

“The Microsoft Intelligent Security Association has grown into a vibrant ecosystem comprised of the most reliable and trusted security software vendors across the globe,” said Maria Thomson, Microsoft Intelligent Security Association Lead. Our members, like IronNet, share Microsoft’s commitment to collaboration within the cybersecurity community to improve our customers’ ability to predict, detect, and respond to security threats faster.”

IronNet’s Collective Defense platform offers a dynamic, radar-like view of potential incoming attacks—a capability that is especially critical for rapidly detecting and mitigating advanced persistent threat attacks (APT) and ensuring that individual companies and organizations do not have to defend alone against nation-state-level network intrusions. This real-time picture of the threat landscape—now leveraging access to anonymized Microsoft data and shared knowledge—empowers organizations and industries to more proactively defend against cyberattacks, both on-premises and in the cloud.
