Egress selected for Microsoft ScaleUp program

Company news

London - March 2018 - Data privacy and risk management company Egress Software Technologies has today announced it has been selected for the Microsoft ScaleUp program (previously known as Microsoft Accelerator). The program is designed to help fast-growth technology businesses gain access to the full Microsoft ecosystem, providing the necessary go-to-market support to continue rapid expansion, as well as enabling the introduction of new tech innovation into Microsoft.

The ScaleUp program carefully selects organisations developing innovative enterprise-ready technology solutions that align with the Microsoft product suite. With Egress’ products complementing Microsoft’s cloud solutions to bring an additional level of data security for organisations holding and sharing sensitive information, and the company’s long-standing alignment with Microsoft Azure and Office 365, Egress was a natural choice for the program.

“The Microsoft ScaleUp program is keen to support fast-growth tech companies and Egress fits that brief nicely. Tony has built an agile company that we can start to build a closer working relationship with to support our clients’ transformation journeys.” Warwick Hill, MD Microsoft for Startups.

As one of only 10 companies chosen for the latest program cohort, Egress will work directly with the ScaleUp team to ensure that Microsoft’s global customer base can take advantage of the Egress platform of user-centric data security services. By putting the user in the centre of a suite of privacy and risk management tools driven by intelligent, machine-learning software, Egress is already helping thousands of organisations across the public and private sectors manage risk when sharing unstructured data. For example, the Egress Threat Protection solution prevents data breaches even before they happen. It prevents emails from being sent to the wrong person by using self-learning technologies to alert users to mistakes before they hit send.

Tony Pepper, Chief Executive Officer, Egress commented: “Today’s announcement is a significant milestone for Egress, as it recognises our close technology alignment with Microsoft. This has been driven through the work we have been doing for a number of years to provide enhanced privacy and risk management services to the Azure and Office 365 platforms. Our participation in the ScaleUp program will formalise this exciting partnership and provides us with the sales, marketing and technical support to drive the continued rapid growth of our services on the Microsoft platform.”
