odix, a leading Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) technology company, said Wednesday that it has officially joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA) program. 

Israel-based odix was nominated to MISA for integrating its recently launched product, FileWall, with Microsoft Azure Sentinel. FileWall is a security application for Microsoft 365 mailboxes and now includes reporting capabilities to Azure Sentinel, the company said.

MISA was formed in 2018 to provide a community for premier cybersecurity companies to collaborate and better integrate their technologies with Microsoft Security products. By joining MISA, odix looks to advance its CDR solutions' fluid integration into the range of widely-used Microsoft software products.  

The association uniquely fosters critical relationships between innovative designers and developers creating cyber security products that integrate with Azure Sentinel, Graph Security API and other Microsoft products. By removing the obstacles to direct integration, MISA members can fast-track technological and product developments to produce a more robust security ecosystem for Microsoft 365 users.  

odix develops and markets advanced anti-malware tools based on its TrueCDR technology for preventative cybersecurity in enterprises of all sizes. The company's technology prevents malware infiltration into organizational networks by removing all malicious code from a wide range of file types. Uniquely, odix protects files from unknown attacks where legacy solutions fall short, according to the company.    

odix CEO Oren Eytan said "odix inclusion into MISA, Microsoft's premier security association, is a clear sign of Microsoft's recognition of the innovative technology and market demand for our industry leading CDR solutions. With our participation in MISA, odix is better positioned to integrate our products for the benefit of MIcrosoft 365 users. Combined with the recent launch of FileWall, this allows us to better protect users from malware and cyberattacks while enabling security teams to get visibility via Microsoft Azure Sentinel. We couldn't be happier to solidify our relationship to help remove the threat of malware for millions of Microsoft 365 users globally."  

MISA provides members with avenues to enrich security products, execute go-to-market strategy, connect with customers and other MISA partners, and ease integration into the Microsoft ecosystem.  

Rani Lofstrom, Senior Product Marketing Manager for Microsoft Security, commented, "The Microsoft Intelligent Security Association has grown into a vibrant ecosystem comprised of the most reliable and trusted security software vendors across the globe. Our members, like odix, share Microsoft's commitment to collaboration within the cybersecurity community to improve our customers' ability to predict, detect, and respond to security threats faster."    

odix solutions are deployed by enterprises in industrial, finance, insurance, government and other sectors. The company operates from its headquarters in Israel and regional offices in USA and Europe.
