CTSI named Microsoft Gold Security Partner

A key to a successful partnership lies in a constant inspiration and motivation to always move forward and be better than yesterday.

The Microsoft-Comtrade partnership began way back in 2001, but almost twenty years later, Comtrade SI continues to advance its prestigious Microsoft Partner status.

The new Comtrade SI competency, Microsoft Gold Security Partner, is the 16th Microsoft Gold competency that Comtrade SI achieved, out of the total of 18.

Microsoft Security competency has some of the most challenging prerequisites, and is one of the most difficult to achieve. Security competency was established in the second half of 2019, and the Gold level requires a number of prerequisites, such as:

  • A great number of a top-level certification exams passed,
  • A number of licenses sold, i.e. activation of security-related licenses (EMS),
  • Implementation of Azure security services, namely their activation and consumption (Sentinel, Security Center, DDoS), over a period of one year.

By February 2020, Comtrade SI was able to pass all the required certification exams, as well as meet the prerequisites for licenses: it achieved 4K activation in Azure AD Premium (AADP), along with the required consumption of Azure security services.

Status of Microsoft Gold Security Partner is another in a series of endorsements of Comtrade SI’s effort, dedication and interest, as well as the longstanding, mutual nurturing of this significant partnership. We are proud of the fact that our partner recognizes our work, and also grateful for another prestigious recognition that offers added value to the Comtrade SI business.

We will continue to deliver outstanding results with the Microsoft-Comtrade SI partnership, confirming that this tandem is a winning combination for the development and implementation of Microsoft technologies in the region.
