With the successful implementation and management of security platform solutions at leading German energy suppliers, glueckkanja has made a significant contribution to increasing IT security, which in turn has a positive impact on the overall security of supply in Germany.

Due to these remarkable achievements, glueckkanja was not only the first European partner, but also one of the first three partners worldwide to be awarded the prestigious Microsoft Verified Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR) status. The company received additional recognition recently at the RSA conference in San Francisco. Here, the company was voted in the top 5 in the highly competitive Security MSSP of the Year category for the Microsoft Security Excellence Award 2023.

Now, glueckkanja continues its success story and also receives the coveted Partner of the Year Award 2023 in the Accelerate Trust category from Microsoft in Germany, further underlining the company’s leading position in the industry.
