Accudata Systems Achieves Cisco Master Security Specialization in USA

Cisco Specialization Level Distinguishes Channel Partners With Highest Level of Security Expertise, Lifecycle Services and Success in Sales

HOUSTON, March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Accudata Systems announced today that it has achieved the Cisco® Master Security Specialization. This specialization recognizes Accudata as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, deploy, and support highly sophisticated Cisco network security solutions.

"We are very pleased with this validation from Cisco. It demonstrates our commitment to meeting our customer's complex and evolving business needs with industry-leading expertise and customer service," said Vid Sista, the Accudata Practice Director of Data Center and Security. "Accudata now joins an elite handful of US-based Cisco Gold partners that hold both Master Unified Communications and Master Security Specializations. We are extremely proud of the dedication and teamwork it took to reach this milestone. "

"The Cisco Master Security Specialization is designed to recognize resale channel partners who have taken the steps to be able to deliver a self-defending network consisting of integrated, collaborative and adaptive security solutions and full life-cycle services," said Edison Peres, senior vice president of worldwide channels at Cisco. "Accudata's Cisco Master Security Specialization is an outstanding achievement."

Channel partners with the Cisco Master Security Specialization have invested in the most in-depth technology skills, and demonstrated success in providing services for Cisco's value-added security solutions. To achieve the Master Security Specialization, partners must first attain the Cisco Advanced Security Specialization. Partners must then meet a series of stringent requirements in three categories:  technology capabilities, sales expertise, and Cisco Lifecycle Services. Channel partners must meet a number of Cisco and industry-standard technical certification requirements, provide customer references that document prescribed design and deployment capabilities, and supply evidence that they have the infrastructure to support a full menu of Lifecycle Services offerings and capabilities. 

The Cisco Resale Channel Program provides a framework for partners to build the sales, technical and Cisco Lifecycle Services skills required to deliver Cisco solutions to end customers. Through the program's specializations and certifications, Cisco recognizes a partner's expertise in deploying solutions based on Cisco advanced technologies and services. Using a third-party audit process, the program validates a partner's technology skills, business practices, customer satisfaction, presales and post sales support capabilities, and other critical factors that customers consider when choosing a trusted partner.
