All the winners from Microsoft's 20/20 security awards

30 Mar 2020

The inaugural Microsoft 20/20 partner awards almost went overlooked with the news understandably crowded by pandemic updates over the last month.

Security organisations and experts across 16 award categories were recognised at the awards ceremony in San Francisco, spanning security integration partners, system integrators, and managed security service providers. 

“The themes for Microsoft Security 20/20 are vision and clarity. Microsoft is focused on protecting our customers and there is no vision for the future that doesn’t involve security partners,” says Microsoft Threat Protection corporate vice president Rob Lefferts.

“The first Microsoft Security 20/20 partner awards gala honours security partners that are making an impact through technology development and customer enablement.”

The award categories and finalists were selected by a cross functional group within Microsoft. 

These finalists were chosen among a global field of Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation, integration, and customer implementation. 

Winners were chosen based on a vote from a broad swath of Microsoft Security experts, which includes engineers, marketers, partners, managers, security architects, and more.
