It's important that customers take a good look at the reputation of the cloud provider to see how engaged they are with the wider cloud community.
(PRWEB UK) 6 September 2012
iCritical, the cloud-based web and email security provider, today announced that it has joined EuroCloud UK as its newest member. The runner-up for the 2012 Best Cloud Offering award is the 16th UK cloud business to have joined the alliance during the summer months.
EuroCloud UK brings together cloud vendors and industry experts to network, share best practice and build the profile of the industry.
As a cloud services provider for email security, web security and secure email archiving, iCritical is already participating in what EuroCloud calls the “Cloud ecosystem”. The vendor says that it wants to play an active role in the cloud computing community and believes forums such as EuroCloud provide a way for businesses to judge the credibility of a cloud services provider.
“Our EuroCloud membership demonstrates iCritical’s commitment to cloud computing and gives us a great opportunity to connect and network with other cloud industry participants, says Chris Gee, Managing Director, iCritical. “Cloud computing is really taking off at the moment so it’s important that customers take a good look at the reputation of the cloud provider to see how engaged they are with the wider cloud community. There’s a lot of trust involved when you choose to move to the cloud and we believe our membership to the EuroCloud community enhances our position as a trusted cloud services provider.”
“It is great to see iCritical, one of a continuing breed of British cloud providers, stepping up to the plate and delivering robust cloud solutions that are bringing business value to UK firms. With Data Sovereignty becoming more important to customers in cloud decisions, firms showing local commitment and cloud credibility are going to become even more important. EuroCloud enables such firms to join together and discuss, foster and benefit from the gathering of the whole.”
iCritical supplies its services directly and through a network of resellers.
