CalTech to Begin the MSP Verify certification process; vendor-agnostic certification for Cloud and Managed Services Practitioners Worldwide Provides Quality Assurance, and Stamp of Reliability for Current, Potential Customers

“Part of our mission is to deliver exceptional IT services to our customers and undergoing this rigorous audit is a testament to ensuring that we are living up to our mission,” said Michael Adams CalTech COO.

CalTech today announced that it will undergo the MSPAlliance’s MSP Verify Program (MSPV), the oldest certification for cloud computing and managed services. The MSPV is based on the 10 control objectives of the Unified Certification Standard for Cloud & MSPs.

The MSPV was the first certification created specifically for the managed services and cloud industry. Every certification comes with a written report with the entire process documented, validated and signed by a 3rd party accounting firm. The MSPV has been reviewed by governmental agencies and regulatory bodies across the globe and used and accepted in 5 continents around the world.

"The MSPV certification is a rigorous certification process that benchmarks and verifies the quality of the company providing cloud and/or managed services,” said Charles Weaver, MSPAlliance CEO. "We are very proud to have CalTech undertake this important milestone for cloud and MSPs.”

MSP Verify Program
The UCS consists of 10 control objectives and underlying controls that constitute crucial building blocks of a successful managed services (and cloud computing) practice. Once the provider’s organization has completed all MSPV documentation on all applicable control objectives (with the assistance of MSPAlliance's readiness assessments, gap analysis, helpful templates and consulting) the results are then examined by an independent third-party accounting firm for verification and signing of a public-facing report.

As with any other substantive certification of this type, the MSPV certification must be renewed annually. The MSPV was the first certification created specifically for the managed services and cloud industry. The MSPV has been reviewed by governmental agencies and regulatory bodies across the globe and is used and accepted in 5 continents around the world.

Customers who select a company that is part of the MSPV can also rest assured that their IT solution provider has met and exceeded the following standards dealing with:
●    Objective 1: Governance,
●    Objective 2: Policies and Procedures,
●    Objective 3: Confidentiality and Privacy,
●    Objective 4: Change Management,
●    Objective 5: Service Operations Management,
●    Objective 6: Information Security,
●    Objective 7: Data Management,
●    Objective 8: Physical Security,
●    Objective 9: Billing and Reporting, and
●    Objective 10: Corporate Health.

The MSPV certification report is signed by a third-party accounting firm.

“Part of our mission is to deliver exceptional IT services to our customers and undergoing this rigorous audit is a testament to ensuring that we are living up to our mission,” said Michael Adams CalTech COO.
