Automated Intelligence now has three Microsoft awards under its belt after it gained Silver status in the Security Competency 

The award comes at the same time as we have been re-certificated for our Gold status in DevOps and Cloud Platform for the second and third year respectively.  

Microsoft competencies demonstrate our capability to deliver Microsoft solutions and our team needed to pass a number of technical examinations to clinch the awards.  

The new Security Competency was only introduced by Microsoft in July 2020 and recognises our capabilities in deploying and managing security solutions for organisations worldwide.  

The Security Competency distinguishes partners who are best prepared to help customers: 

  • Protect information 
  • Implement identity and access management 
  • Defend against cyber-security threats 

Colin Flack, our Security and Operations Manager, said: “Security, particularly data security, is such a high priority for organisations this year due to the rise in remote working. Regulatory compliance has certainly become more of a challenge.  

“Therefore, we are delighted that our third Competency achieved is that of Security as it shows that we have the understanding and capability when it comes to securing business-critical information.” 

Automated Intelligence has been a Microsoft Gold partner since 2013, having first achieved the Application Development competency for six years.
