Virtru Joins Prestigious Microsoft Accelerator

Virtru’s mission is to eliminate the tradeoff between data protection and ease of use for businesses – regardless of the technology that they’re using. With more than 60 million active Office 365 customers and 93% growth in its Azure cloud platform, Microsoft continues to power the way that enterprises create, store, and share data.

That’s why we’re excited to join the Microsoft Accelerator and expand Virtru’s support for products in the Microsoft ecosystem.

As one of only 11 companies chosen for the Microsoft Accelerator, Virtru engineers and product managers will work directly with the Microsoft team to bring new, innovative data protection products to market. Additionally, Virtru’s participation will accelerate our go-to-market strategy with Microsoft sales, marketing, and channel enablement programs, while also aligning both of our teams to promote and co-sell Virtru products to Microsoft customers.

“Virtru impressed us with their cross-platform, easy-to-use data protection solutions for Microsoft cloud customers,” said Raghav Kher, Managing Director, Microsoft Accelerator (Seattle). “We’re excited to work closely with their team to accelerate their product and go-to-market initiatives.”

The Microsoft Accelerator program is tailor-made for growth stage companies looking to scale their business and capture enterprise customers. Unlike traditional accelerator programs that help early-stage startups identify product-market fit and educate with basic curriculum, the Microsoft Accelerator is designed to take mature startups and turn them into enterprise-ready companies by scaling every aspect of their business.

Recently selected by the Security Innovation Network (SINET) as one of the 16 most innovative new companies in cybersecurity, Virtru plans to leverage the Accelerator to extend our technical and market leadership position.

“This announcement is a significant milestone for us because it recognizes the need for easy-to-use, cross-platform data protection and control as organizations move to the cloud,” said John Ackerly, Virtru CEO. “Billions of people and millions of businesses around the world use Microsoft products. Participation in the Microsoft Accelerator reflects Virtru’s strong and growing position within the Microsoft ecosystem.”

After recently announcing support for Outlook Web App (OWA) for Office 365, Virtru is excited to leverage our Microsoft Accelerator experience to expand data protection capabilities across other Office 365 platforms – in addition to Microsoft’s Azure cloud products and services.
