Ensono Achieves Amazon Web Services Managed Service Provider Partner Status

Thursday, September 13, 2018

Ensono announces it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Managed Service Provider (MSP) Partner status after showing exemplary operational capabilities during a thorough audit process. 

Ensono’s highly consultative approach to client engagement and holistic service offerings were noted as major factors in its success. Through recent partnerships with AlertLogic and the integration of GuardDuty, Ensono was able to demonstrate enhanced levels of security capabilities in order to offer premium security services to its clients. This AWS MSP program ensures that clients receive support from top talent and efficient processes, along with the best tools and technology through top-notch AWS environment management. 

“AWS goes beyond the typical audits to guarantee our clients are being guided through the journey to the cloud with the utmost expertise and support and given the resources they need to be successful on AWS,” said Michelle Roberts, director of partner management, hyperscale cloud at Ensono. “We aim to provide our clients with unparalleled managed services, and accolades like this are a testament to our dedication and proficiency.”

Print and technology specialist Brother International Europe works with Ensono to drive business innovation through a cloud-first strategy. Migrating to AWS equipped Brother with the agility and efficiency needed to meet the evolving needs of its customers through a digital presence, procurement and online product portfolio.

“Working closely with Ensono allows us to stay ahead of our clients’ needs thanks to the cutting-edge technology we’re able to leverage,” said Tim Wadhams, director, MIS and CIO Europe at Brother International Europe. “From the beginning, we trusted Ensono as our ally and partner to lead us through our cloud migration. We look forward to a lasting relationship as our cloud needs continue to grow and evolve.”

The AWS audit goes beyond revenue numbers to ensure Ensono exceeds the program requirements as a next generation AWS MSP. The strenuous audit process consisted of reviewing selected processes, procedures and evidence to determine that Ensono’s capabilities are superior, particularly in regard to their cloud offerings. Noted strengths included Ensono’s proprietary technology, Ensono M.O., an intelligent IT governance platform, which enables clients to focus on innovation and value-adding initiatives without the distraction of managing their environment.

In addition to receiving the AWS MSP Partner designation, Ensono holds more than 120 AWS certifications, with many of their engineers holding at least five certifications each.
