Ensono Achieves Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Service Provider Status for 4th Consecutive Year

By again earning Azure Expert MSP status, Ensono solidifies its position as a leading managed service provider

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., Nov. 16, 2021 Ensono, a leading end-to-end managed services provider, today announced that it has achieved Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Service Provider status for the fourth consecutive year. To earn the recognition, Ensono passed a rigorous third-party audit that evaluated technical expertise, assessment and design, build and migration, cloud operations and service management, cost optimization and reporting for Ensono’s Microsoft Azure services.

As an Azure Expert MSP since the program’s inception in 2018, Ensono successfully completed a full audit that included multiple client references of the Azure managed services projects delivered over the past year. Upon completion of the audit, Ensono reestablishes its position as an Azure Expert MSP after it was recently acquired by KKR, helping clients to adopt and manage Azure services while ensuring they are partnered with highly qualified technicians and consultants.

“As a Microsoft Azure Expert MSP, our clients receive high-quality service for their cloud transformation needs,” said Duan Van Der Westhuizen, senior vice president of public cloud at Ensono. “This designation is a testament to our team’s expertise and innovation as Microsoft continues to expand the Azure cloud services portfolio. As an Azure Expert MSP, we serve as relentless allies to our enterprise clients across each sector to raise the bar and accelerate cloud adoption, achieving their digital transformation and business goals.”

As Azure continues to evolve in the cloud market, Ensono remains committed to aligning its mission with the expectations of Azure Expert MSPs while providing clients with highly advanced mainframe to Azure transformation services. Ensono’s continued Azure Expert MSP recognition affirms to clients and prospects that the company remains true to Azure standards as Microsoft continuously improves its cloud offering to meet evolving business needs, while also building on Ensono’s three Azure advanced specializations: Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop, Windows Server and SQL Server Migration to Microsoft Azure, and Kubernetes on Microsoft Azure. In addition, Ensono has 17-year Microsoft MVP Gordon McKenna as the company’s leading Cloud CTO to help guide clients along their journey to the cloud.

“Partners play a central role in Microsoft’s vision to support companies in their digital transformation projects,” said Rodney Clark, Corporate Vice President, Global Channel Sales and Channel Chief at Microsoft. “Ensono has invested in building deep Microsoft Azure knowledge and services and we are pleased to recognize it as a Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Service Provider for the fourth year.”
