ThirdSpace expertise recognised with new Microsoft Gold Security accreditation

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

The award distinguishes ThirdSpace as a trusted partner with expert knowledge across the Microsoft security suite.

The ability to work remotely is one thing, to be able to do so securely is a whole other matter. Here at ThirdSpace, we’ve worked hard to enable the freedom to work securely from anywhere both in ourselves and in our clients – a freedom that is increasingly becoming a necessity.

The past two years have seen the ThirdSpace Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) practice double in size to help realise the ambitions of a growing number of clients that are seeking simple, secure solutions to mobilise workforces.

Now, our long-established expertise in providing the security, capability and assurance required for mobile and flexible working is further evidenced by our attainment of the Microsoft Gold Security Partner competency.

What is a Microsoft Gold Partner?

Microsoft uses its various competency awards to identify partners who have the required expertise to meet a client’s needs.

But becoming a Gold Partner is no mean feat, and Microsoft extensively verifies a partner’s knowledge and experience before awarding a gold certification.

In order to achieve Gold Partner status, a partner must:

  • Provide client references for five successful implementations
  • Have at least four qualified Microsoft Certified Engineers pass the relevant security certification exams

We tasked four of our talented EMS team to pass two security engineering certifications each, thereby covering the entire Microsoft platform. Within a month, after some intense revision sessions, they had all succeeded.

Mathew Richards, Head of the ThirdSpace EMS practice and Microsoft Security PAC advisor said: “Our market-leading position in the Microsoft security space is testament to the award-winning*, talented team of senior consultants and architects at ThirdSpace. Our recent accreditation as a Microsoft Gold Partner means that our clients can have absolute confidence that our team’s knowledge and experience can meet their mobile working needs and help keep them secure.”

Congratulations to Paul Rouse, John Hur, Andrew Bennet and David Guest on their accreditations. Their sterling work will enable ThirdSpace to continue helping clients gain the control needed to liberate their workforce securely.

*Microsoft Security and Compliance Partner of the Year, 2018
