Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella: We ‘Outgrew The Market In Every Category’

‘We will invest to take share and build new businesses in categories where we have long-term structural advantage,’ Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said on the company’s latest earnings call.

Nadella On Security

As the rate and pace of threats continue to accelerate, security is the top priority for every organization.

We provide comprehensive solutions that integrate more than 50 categories informed by more than 43 trillion signals each day, reducing cost and complexity.

We’re taking share across all major categories we serve. All up, our security revenue increased 40 percent.

We are the only cloud provider with protection for the top three cloud platforms, and we are seeing more and more customers turn to us to protect their multi-cloud, multi-platform infrastructure. [Exam provider] Pearson VUE and Vodafone both chose our security stack to protect the digital estate across clouds. And we’re going further to help protect organizations. Our new Entra product family includes tools for permissions management, identity governance and identity verification.

And we now offer managed threat detection and response with Microsoft Security Experts. The world’s largest hedge fund, Bridgewater Associates, for example, will use the service to supplement its own security operations. … We’re investing in sharpening our focus to help our customers during this critical moment and to capture the massive technological shifts underway.

Our portfolio of best-of-category products and best-of-suite solutions along with our durable business models and intense focus on prioritization and executional excellence make me confident about our opportunity ahead in the coming year.
