ThirdSpace strides ahead with advanced specialisation award from Microsoft

Alastair Rees - Head of Marketing and Alliances.
Written by Alastair Rees

As one of the few UK partners to achieve the specialisation, the qualification highlights ThirdSpace’s expertise in Microsoft’s threat protection technologies.

ThirdSpace is one of the first 10 partners globally to be awarded the Microsoft Threat Protection Advanced Specialisation.

The specialisation acts as a trust mark for organisations looking for a partner to collaborate with on projects involving Microsoft threat protection and cloud app security technologies.

A valuable extension to ThirdSpace’s existing gold-level security competencies from Microsoft, the specialisation signifies expert knowledge of Microsoft security products, with proven experience of real-life application and successful client deployments.

Coupled with the shortlisting for Microsoft’s 2020 Security and Compliance Partner of the Year, the specialisation underscores ThirdSpace’s pedigree in the cyber security space.

Mathew Richards, Head of the Mobility and Security practice, said, “I’m very proud of the team for this achievement. It’s a great endorsement of our capabilities and focus on adapting to and solving the security challenges of our clients.”

Such specialisations are hard-won, requiring at least six staff to pass the MS-500 Microsoft 365 Security Administration exams as well as submitting three case studies to support the application.

These case studies are rigorously checked and validated before approval of the specialisation is awarded.

Congratulations to Andrew Bennett, Mark Warnes, Paul Rouse, Luke Rees, John Hur and David Guest for passing their exams and providing additional reassurance to our clients that their IT infrastructure is safe hands.
