For the fourth consecutive year, NSFOCUS has received the honour of the Microsoft Mitigation Bounty Award.

The award aims to recognise security researchers who use their intelligence and capabilities to help protect Microsoft customers.

Within the programme, talented researchers around the world are given the chance to deliver novel exploitation techniques against protections built into the latest version of Microsoft operating systems, with the goal of identifying flaws and improving security markedly.

NSFOCUS provides an advanced network security platform that uses the latest threat intelligence to detect malicious behaviour.

“Keeping pace with today's cyber-threat landscape requires a deep understanding of threat actors, vectors and the latest vulnerabilities for critical assets,” said Allan Thompson, COO of NSFOCUS IB. “This award demonstrates the extensive research and analysis that informs all of our cloud, network and application security products.”
