Expert Insight

Microsoft Gold Security Partner

Security threats are at an all-time high, and at Stripe OLT, our experts are committed to delivering cloud-first technologies to organisations, in order to secure business-critical systems and data.

As such, we’re incredibly proud to announce our latest achievement – thanks to the fantastic work from our Security Operations Centre (SOC) team, we have achieved the Microsoft Gold Security Competency and are now a Microsoft Gold Security Partner.

So, what does it mean to be a Microsoft Gold Security Partner?

Attaining a Microsoft competency demonstrates your expertise in delivering solutions to a specialist area of business. Competencies are awarded in two categories – Silver to demonstrate ongoing commitment and capability, and Gold to demonstrate expert capability within a Microsoft solution.

In order to achieve our Microsoft Gold security competency, four individuals were required to pass the MS-500 exam (Microsoft 365 Security Administration), in addition to four individuals passing the AZ-500 exam (Microsoft Azure Security Technologies). Through successfully attaining the latest Microsoft certifications, our team have demonstrated best-in-class capabilities at protecting sensitive data, managing user access and securing against cyber-threats.

Our SOC Manager, Mark Richardson, says:

“At Stripe OLT, we’re committed to empowering our clients through Microsoft’s advanced security solutions. Achieving Gold Security further validates the skills, commitment and deep technical knowledge that our SecOps team bring to the table, and we’re enormously proud of this accomplishment. By working with our Security Operations team, businesses can utilise the advanced security features of Microsoft 365 whilst also benefiting from a proactive team of technical experts, providing protection against modern day threats.”

Gavriella Schuster, Corporate Vice President at Microsoft, states:

“By achieving a Gold competency, partners have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology. These partners have a deep expertise that puts them in the top of our partner ecosystem, and their proficiency will help customers drive innovative solutions.”
