1 December 2015, Theale, Reading, UK – NTT Com Security has announced it has attained the highest partner status in the F5 Guardian Professional Services Program. The achievement recognises the global information security and risk management company as an elite channel partner with the advanced skills and experience required to successfully implement F5’s product portfolio.
Security company becomes elite F5 channel partner in EMEA after attaining full set of accreditations
NTT Com Security has achieved the highest accreditations, Advanced Implementation Provider and Advanced Security Provider, following F5’s rigorous assessment of its knowledge and competence. It is one of the first partners in EMEA to do so. It attained the preceding two accreditations, which are Installation Provider, Application Security Provider, earlier this year.
Claudio Camerino, Managing Consultant at NTT Com Security, said: “Achieving the highest accreditations under the partner program boosts our status to work on complex F5 projects. It’s a recognition that solution providers and integrators in our industry aspire to, yet is difficult to attain because they don’t have the depth and breadth of our resources and professional services. Our customers can be confident that our Professional Services team has been trained and tested to the highest standards. Furthermore, it demonstrates NTT Com Security’s commitment to building strategic alliances with industry leading business solution and technology providers, reassuring our customers will get the maximum value out of their investment into security.”
The F5 Guardian Professional Services Program, which launched in February 2013, was designed to develop a limited number of elite partners who are expert in helping organisations architect, implement, maintain, and optimise an IT infrastructure using F5 products. As an integral partner of F5 for over 12 years, NTT Com Security has been involved in the program since its conception and continues to work closely with the vendor to provide unrivalled managed security services.
Michael Schoenrock, Director Channels and MSP, EMEA at F5 said: “Customers are taking a more advanced approach to information security, and our partners therefore need to demonstrate deeper technical proficiency and consulting capabilities. NTT Com Security continues to exhibit strong skills in the deployment of F5 solutions, which is why they have been awarded the highest level of accreditations. Their customers can be assured that they are working with a partner who can operate in the most complex environments.”
