Commercial IT Services one of five to be certified by Sophos
Owen Davies, Technical Consulting Manager
Commercial IT Services is one of just five UK organisations to be awarded expert partner status on the Sophos Cloud Security Provider (CSP) program.
The CSP program supports customers’ use of pay-as-you-go cloud solutions from AWS or Microsoft Azure, as well as the bring-your-own-licence model for use in public cloud environments.
As a certified expert CSP partner, Commercial can help customers on their cloud journey via:
- Support of end users as they deploy, run, and manage applications on AWS and/or Azure
- Advising end users based on knowledge of common security threats, technologies, and practices related to securing cloud infrastructures, platforms and services
- Access of cloud-specific support for trials and deployments.
Ben Roberts, Channel Account Director at Sophos, says: “Commercial IT Services is an important partner for Sophos in the mid-market and education sectors. This certification underlines their commitment to be fully up-to-date on the latest security techniques from Sophos.”
Owen Davies, Technical Consulting Manager at Commercial IT Services, adds: “Planning what to migrate to the cloud and when is a top priority for our customers across the business, legal and education sectors. Security considerations play a major part in their decision making. Our Sophos CSP certification puts us in a strong position to support this process. We are at the forefront of understanding – and managing – the threats as well as the opportunities associated with cloud computing.”
