Concentric AI Becomes Member of Microsoft Intelligent Security Association

Concentric Inc., a vendor of intelligent AI-based solutions for protecting business-critical data, has joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA).

MISA is an ecosystem of independent software vendors and managed security services providers that have integrated their security products with Microsoft’s to defend against increasing cyber-threats. Concentric AI was nominated to MISA for seamlessly integrating its award-winning, trademarked Semantic Intelligence solution for data access governance into the Microsoft Information Protection (MIP) platform.

Semantic Intelligence provides seamless content discovery, data categorization, and risk assessment. With Concentric, Microsoft customers have another option to easily find, evaluate, and protect business-critical data, including private information, intellectual property, sensitive business documents, and more, across their Microsoft Azure and Microsoft 365 environments.

Concentric’s integration with MIP helps customers 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.

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. Learn more at
