London, UK (PRWEB) May 7, 2008
Secoda Risk Management, producer of the acclaimed RuleSafe® policy and compliance suite announced today that it has achieved Microsoft Certified Partner status.
The Microsoft Certified Partner Program now provides the Governance, Risk and Compliance specialist with a rich set of resources designed to help the company grow revenue and build sales momentum, while improving brand prominence and market impact.
Key benefits the company plans to capitalise on include:
- Leveraging Microsoft Partner Program assets to build revenue, sales momentum and market differentiation
- Leveraging Microsoft's Partner Channel Builder to establish new business partnering opportunities
- Reducing operating costs using valuable Microsoft software, training and support resources
- Accelerated delivery of Microsoft-certified solutions to help customers realise their full business potential
Secoda's flagship product RuleSafe ® is founded on Microsoft technology and already integrates with Microsoft's Intelligent Application Gateway (IAG 2007), thanks to Secoda's long standing partnership with Whale Communications which was subsequently acquired by Microsoft last year. The resulting combination of RuleSafe with IAG 2007 allows customer organisations to improve and test employee awareness, and to enforce the acceptance of certain policies as a precondition of allowing people to work remotely or to gain access to specific systems, applications, and data.
"Achieving Microsoft Certified Partner status will further enable us to bring high value services and solutions to our customers, grow our business to the next level and benefit our shareholders" said Adrian Wright, Managing Director of Secoda. Charles Fairbairn, Secoda's Director of Marketing added; "We are excited about the significant new opportunities that now exist for us to generate greater visibility, capture new customers and increase revenues"
Acceptance into the Microsoft Certified Partner program requires companies to earn points in categories such as Microsoft competencies, Microsoft Certified Professional certification, tested Microsoft-based solutions, business wins and customer satisfaction ratings. Meeting stringent qualification requirements, Microsoft Certified Partners are independent companies that provide the highest levels of technical expertise, strategic thinking and hands-on skills.
