“We are extremely pleased to be recognized by Microsoft as a Gold Certified Partner," said Morey Haber, BeyondTrust's Chief Technology Officer and Chief Information Security Officer. "These competencies allow us to promote and expand our privilege management and cybersecurity expertise to our customers. Our Gold Certified Partner status will allow us to continue to enhance the offerings that we provide to our customers leveraging the power of Azure and MSDN."

The Journey to Microsoft Certification

The journey toward certification required a team effort—one that included participation from over 20 BeyondTrust software developers, data architects, cloud engineers, and DevOps specialists from around the globe.

The Microsoft Partner Network helps partners strengthen their capabilities to showcase leadership in the marketplace on the latest technology, to better serve customers and to easily connect with one of the most active, diverse networks in the world.

To earn a Microsoft Gold competency, partners must successfully complete exams (resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals) to prove their level of technology expertise, and then designate these certified professionals uniquely to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. Microsoft partners must also submit customer references that demonstrate successful projects, meet a performance (revenue and or consumption/usage) commitment, and pass technology and/or sales assessments.

Our Microsoft certified professionals spanning four offices around the globe

I’ve long extolled “The Vast Power of Certification” as the process benefits everyone—from the company, to the employee, to our customers who use our products. On a personal level, getting certified years ago was the single most important thing I undertook to boost my career. It was a tremendous opportunity and honor for me to lead BeyondTrust’s recent Microsoft certification initiative.

One of our newly minted Microsoft Certified Software Developers, Greg Dunn, a senior software Engineer, summed up his experience on the certification initiative, "The MCSD certification process has been a great experience for me. It allowed me to validate my .NET development skills and challenged me to learn more about the Microsoft technologies I use daily. The knowledge I gained in the course of pursuing this certification will allow me to build better applications for our customers."
