Copenhagen, Denmark - Nov 25, 2014 - Secunia, a leading provider of IT security solutions that enable businesses and private individuals to manage and control vulnerability threats today announced the appointment of Coretech as Secunia’s first Platinum Partner. Coretech, co-founded by highly respected Microsoft MVP Kent Agerlund, is a leading IT Systems Integrator, Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and member of the Microsoft System Center Alliance. Coretech offer services within the entire Microsoft Systems Center suite, including project management, documentation and training.
Secunia and Coretech have worked together for several years at delivering intelligence-based software vulnerability management to Microsoft System Center users, and this long-standing, productive and close relationship has motivated the decision to invite Coretech to be the very first Platinum Partner.
Coretech is the first partner to meet the standards for specialized technical know-how and consultancy capabilities Secunia has set for a Platinum Partner. Since the launch of the Secunia Partner Program in 2013, Coretech has assisted the Secunia partner community in building their Secunia business by offering Secunia professional services on behalf of other resellers to end users.
"Coretech is renowned globally for their expertise on the Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager, and as a partner has consistently demonstrated excellent pre- and post-sales capabilities and services. To become a Platinum Partner you also need to be a Secunia evangelist: passionate about our technology; in possession of exceptional technical expertise; willing to support other users to make the most of their technology; and have a significant positive impact on technical communities. Coretech lives up to all of that," says Peter Colsted, Secunia CEO.
The two companies are a natural match: Coretech is an expert on the System Center 2012, and provides implementation and management of it for their customers, focusing on performance, simplicity and best practice. The Secunia Corporate Software Inspector (CSI) helps System Center Configuration Manager administrators map and remediate the entire software inventory and correlate this to second-to-none vulnerability intelligence to improve visibility into the vulnerability management lifecycle.
Regularly aligning business plans and activities to bring maximum value to joint customers is a natural element of the close working relationship, and Coretech frequently acts as global Secunia ambassador by, for example, supporting events and delivering webinars and keynote speeches:
"We are proud to be able to meet the exacting Secunia Platinum Partner standards. It is an acknowledgment of our excellent working relationship which is one the cornerstones in Coretech’s business, and we look forward to being able to leverage it to expand and strengthen our footprint in the market. Secunia CSI is the strongest product available in this space and a key component in increasing the value of the solutions we implement for our customers. We are proud to receive this recognition, and pleased to carry on the great work with Secunia," says Peter Odgaard, Coretech CEO.
