Six Degrees has announced that it has become a Microsoft Azure Expert MSP. Six Degrees is one of only eight UK organisations to be awarded this accreditation.
Six Degrees also has an Azure-aligned UK onshore Cyber Security Operations Centre (CSOC), enabling customers to enhance their cyber maturity by identifying and addressing cyber threats.
With the COVID-19 pandemic leading to the widespread adoption of remote working, and consequently an acceleration in cloud adoption, it’s unsurprising that the global public cloud infrastructure market is predicted to grow 35% to £88 billion ($120 billion) this year. However, this hasn’t come without its challenges. 2020 saw the rise and amplification of cyber-attacks, with threat actors trying to capitalise on the vulnerabilities that emerged from the shift to new ways of working. With the uncertainty around the business impact of the pandemic continuing into 2021, remaining agile and getting security right first time have never been so important.
This is why Six Degrees is today also launching its new Beyond Cloud proposition, giving customers ‘the most flexible, secure cloud services available’ so they can look beyond the day-to-day and focus on the future of their organisations. With its range of secure cloud services, and the new Microsoft Azure Expert MSP status, Six Degrees can now offer a coupling of managed services with security expertise to UK businesses.
David Howson, CEO, Six Degrees, says: “At Six Degrees we want to go beyond what other MSPs offer. In today’s world it’s never been more important for organisations to continuously transform and innovate. We help our customers do exactly that through best of breed technology, deep technical expertise and proven best practice service delivery. Everything we do has our industry-leading cyber security at its core giving us, we believe, the best cloud solutions available in the UK.
“Being a Microsoft Azure Expert MSP is a great validation of our approach and solutions. We’re proud to be part of a very small group of providers who are using the transformational power of Azure to take customers to the next level.”
James Chadwick, Interim General Manager – Commercial Partner, Microsoft, comments: “We welcome Six Degrees to the Azure Expert Managed Services Provider (MSP) program after passing the qualifying process and we look forward to continuing to work together on delivering innovative solutions to our customers.”
