Cirrity Snags Cisco Master Service Provider Designation as Company Announces Azure Solutions

Cloud solutions provider Cirrity has risen through Cisco’s (News - Alert) certification ranks and has been named a Cisco Master Service Provider (CMSP). The designation is part of Cisco’s Cloud and Managed Services Program and recognizes the company’s expertise in selling and delivering a variety of Cisco powered cloud services.

Cirrity was previously designated an Advanced CMSP and underwent a tough third-party audit for the new achievement. That includes verification that the company’s services are delivered using enterprise-class reliability, support and security. The company offers Cisco powered IaaS, DRaaS and DaaS solutions.

“The change from Advanced to Master CMSP for our Cisco Powered solutions, along with our involvement in the Cisco Intercloud Fabric initiative, show our ability to provide best-of-breed services to our customers,” said Dan Timko, president and CTO of Cirrity. “Achieving Master CMSP augments our ISO 27001 and Cloud Security Alliance STAR (News - Alert) information security certifications to indicate strong third-party validation of our business strategy and practices for delivering robust and secure cloud services.”

Cisco’s Intercloud Fabric initiative helps organizations migrate to the public cloud and also supports hybrid cloud environments with converged networking and security. The company made an important announcement at the Microsoft (News - Alert) Ignite event this week, integrating Microsoft Azure cloud infrastructure with Cisco intelligent application networking services. Cisco has rolled out a number of solutions to facilitate the transition to Azure as Microsoft looks to strengthen its position as a major cloud infrastructure player.

The alliance is a win-win for service providers like Cirrity, whose customers benefit from a more efficient and seamless migration to the cloud. Cisco also plans to actively sell cloud services from Cirrity through its own sales channels and the companies will continue their relationship of developing and innovating cloud and managed services.
