MSP/Cloud Verify Program offers vendor agnostic Certification for Cloud and Managed Services Practitioners Worldwide; Provides Quality Assurance, and Stamp of Reliability for Current, Potential Customers

We are proud to announce today that Canonical has successfully completed the MSPAlliance’s MSP/Cloud Verify Program (MSPCV) certification process, the oldest certification program for cloud computing and managed services providers. The MSPCV is based on the 10 control objectives of the Unified Certification Standard for Cloud & MSPs.

The MSPCV was the first certification created specifically for the managed services and cloud industry. Every certification comes with a written report with the entire process documented, validated and signed by a 3rd party accounting firm. The MSPCV has been reviewed by governmental agencies and regulatory bodies across the globe and is used and accepted in 5 continents around the world.

“The MSPCV examination is a rigorous certification process that benchmarks and verifies the quality of the company providing cloud and/or managed services,” said Charles Weaver, MSPAlliance CEO. “We are very proud to have Canonical as a member of this elite community of cloud and MSPs.”

MSPCV was created, using a wide base of criteria, to certify cloud and Managed IT Solution Providers thereby ensuring that they have met and exceed well-established standards of excellence and client care. Customers who select a company that is part of the MSPCV can also rest assured that their IT solution provider has met and exceeded the following standards dealing with:

  • Corporate Risk Management
  • Documentation
  • Service & Program Change Management
  • Event Management
  • Logical Security
  • Data privacy, security, and integrity
  • Physical security
  • Managed services SLA, reporting, and billing
  • Corporate health
  • Company is under constant external review from the MSPAlliance and the IT profession to continually maintain and improve standards of care of excellence

The MSPCV examination is performed by a third party accounting firm.

“Consuming managed services for OpenStack is the model of choice for many companies adopting the technology. BootStack leads this segment of the market due to its economics and flexibility, and by achieving the MSP/Cloud Verify Certification, it will continue to lead factoring in security and reliability” said Arturo Suarez, Cloud Product Manager at Canonical.

Since 2000, the MSPAlliance has been the only unified voice for the Managed Services Industry, and the only organization that promotes the highest level of professionalism, reliability and integrity. As the world’s largest Professional Association and Certification Body for the Managed Services Industry, the MSPAlliance was created to meet the needs of the Managed Services Professional and to educate and protect the consumers of managed services and cloud.
