London, UK, and San Ramon, California, USA — June 27, 2023 — Device Authority today announced it has won the Rising Azure Technology 2023 Microsoft Partner of the Year Award. The company was honored among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.

Device Authority CEO, Darron Antill commented, “We are delighted that Keyscaler-as-a-service (KsaaS), our cloud-first approach to automated end-to-end device security has been recognized with this award. With today’s global supply chains increasingly relying on interconnected devices and the relaying of timely data to Artificial Intelligence systems, trust in devices has never been more important. Because these devices are often located outside of the secured network environment, they’ve become a target for bad actors, and a single disruption to a production line can cost an organization up to 5% of its annual profits.

“Leveraging Azure’s capabilities, KSaaS provides an automated and scalable solution to our customers’ device security problems, accelerating their digital transformation and providing resilience throughout their connected infrastructure.”

The Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards recognize Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered outstanding Microsoft-based applications, services and devices during the past year. Awards were classified in various categories, with honorees chosen from a set of more than 4,200 submitted nominations from more than 100 countries worldwide. Device Authority was recognized for providing outstanding solutions and services in Global Rising Azure Technology.

The award recognizes a technology partner that has demonstrated strong customer focus and impact by building on Microsoft Azure as their primary cloud platform and scaling their solution by selling with Microsoft. The winning partner solution clearly demonstrates the value of repeatable IP and showcases how technology can solve differentiated value, addresses a unique market need, and improves the customer experience.

“Congratulations to the winners and finalists of the 2023 Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards!” said Nicole Dezen, Chief Partner Officer and Corporate Vice President of Global Partner Solutions at Microsoft. “The innovative new solutions and services that positively impact customers and enable digital transformation from this year’s winners demonstrate the best of what’s possible with the Microsoft Cloud.”

The Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards are announced annually prior to the company’s global partner conference, Microsoft Inspire, which will take place on July 18-19 this year. Additional details on the 2023 awards are available on the Microsoft Partner blog: The complete list of categories, winners and finalists can be found at
