PRESS RELEASE — GREENVILLE, S.C., Nov. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE: SNX), a leading business process services company, today announced it has been named an authorized dealer of Microsoft Azure Government. The authorization opens a pathway for partners working in public sector verticals to boost their offerings with leading cloud services precisely designed for the needs of government organizations.
As the expectations of citizens increase, the need for technology innovation in government intensifies. Azure Government is the mission-critical cloud, delivering the public sector and its partners the exclusivity, highest compliance and security, hybrid flexibility, and commercial-grade innovation required for modernization in government today. Covering more than 60 major certifications and attestations, Azure Government has up to four times more coverage than the next closest option depending on the specific compliance mandate. The cloud platform also offers exclusive government-only dedicated physical datacenter network nationwide with six regions, yet the flexibility to maintain some data and functionality on-premises as needed.
“As compliance with regulation and public demand rapidly increase reliance on technology in the public sector, a consistent, reliable and accessible cloud platform is the backbone supporting that change,” said Darren Harbaugh, Vice President, Cloud & Emerging Services, SYNNEX Corporation. “With Microsoft Azure, through the SYNNEX CLOUDSolv marketplace, we enable our partners to drive deployment and provide comprehensive solutions that help them compete and grow their business in the government vertical.”
Tom Keane, head of global infrastructure for Microsoft Azure added, “Public agencies need a trusted cloud technology that can meet current regulations while adapting to ensure ongoing compliance and Microsoft Azure Government delivers. SYNNEX’ robust public-sector solutions and strong track record with Microsoft makes it an excellent choice for bringing Azure Government to resellers and their government customers who are looking to innovate on cloud, but who still need to meet the complex technical demands of regulatory compliance.”
Azure government services are ideal for partners selling into the federal, public safety or SLED verticals, where customers must meet stringent guidelines for cloud vendors. Azure Government through SYNNEX CLOUDSolv also presents a valuable avenue for resellers to grow their business with existing customers.
