ReadyNetworks and Cosentry Team Up on Managed Cloud, Network and Data Center Services

A new managed services partnership between ReadyNetworks and Cosentry will make data center services, cloud strategies and security and compliance solutions easily available to SMBs. The companies are teaming up in an effort to provide enterprise-class IT infrastructure and strategy to a broader range of their customers.

MSP ReadyNetworks already has a strong presence providing IT services to SMBs in the Midwest region. The company will work with IT infrastructure provider Cosentry and utilize the company’s nine data centers, acting as its exclusive data center and enterprise managed services partner. The facilities are spread across the region, with presence in Milwaukee, St. Louis, Omaha, Kansas City and Sioux Falls.

ReadyNetworks clients will be able to benefit from optimized data center services along with key managed cloud services as well as disaster recovery planning and high-level security processes. Cosentry will in turn be using carrier solutions from ReadyNetworks to extend its advanced data services to the carrier marketplace. The company will help its own customers to simplify their network infrastructures using products and services from AT&T’s (News - Alert) vast network. Those resources are being made available thanks to ReadyNetworks’ participation in the AT&T Partner Exchange reseller program.

”We're thrilled to be working closely with Cosentry to deliver competitive advantage to new and existing clients," said Sam Barhoumeh, founder and managing director of ReadyNetworks. "[Cosentry’s] 15-year track record of success helping organizations achieve IT objectives centers on building collaborative partnerships with clients and delivering the highest levels of reliability, performance and security."

"We are excited about what this relationship with ReadyNetworks brings to the SMB market," added Derek Gillepsie, chief sales officer at Cosentry. "This mutually beneficial relationship will enable both companies to leverage our respective expertise as we further differentiate ourselves as market leaders."

Together, the companies will focus on offering cloud and managed IT services including business continuity and disaster recovery, managed security and compliance, risk assessment, help desk and IT support, unified communications and data center solutions.
