The Microsoft Intelligent Security Association is an ecosystem of independent software vendors and Managed Security Services providers that have integrated their security products with Microsoft’s to better defend against increasing cyber-threats.

“Concentric’s advanced deep-learning technology solves the ongoing challenges of cloud data security and access governance,” said Karthik Krishnan, Concentric CEO. “We are excited to be a part of MISA and showcase how our integration with MIP delivers simple, autonomous data discovery and categorization for complete data protection.

Concentric’s integration with MIP helps customers quickly scan data to establish least-privileges access controls, build ransomware resiliency, and comply with regulatory demands for private data protection. Semantic Intelligence eliminates hard-to-maintain rules and intrusive end-user document tagging by leveraging advanced artificial intelligence (AI) techniques. The solution operates continuously and autonomously, processing data accurately and without IT overhead.

“Visibility into the volume and location of sensitive data is critical, especially for remote workforces. Members of the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association, like Concentric, integrate via data connectors to help customers enable information governance, eDiscovery, and communication compliance,” said Alym Rayani, General Manager, Product Marketing, Microsoft Compliance. “This gives our shared customers access to the data they need to manage compliance and risk management in Microsoft 365.”

Concentric’s Semantic Intelligence features the company’s patent-pending Risk Distance™ analysis technology to assess risk and remediate vulnerabilities in individual files. Risk Distance identifies oversharing, inappropriate third-party access, wrong locations, or file misclassification by comparing each document with other documents in the same category. This means organizations can benefit from the expertise of content owners without intrusive classification mandates, inaccurate rules, or burdensome ongoing policy maintenance.

Semantic Intelligence, Risk Distance, and Concentric’s integrations with Azure and Microsoft 365 are available immediately.
