EDTS, a full-service technology consulting firm specializing in networking, security and managed services support solutions for business, has been named a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner for the tenth straight year, demonstrating its ability to meet and exceed Microsoft customer needs in today’s dynamic business environment.
Microsoft Gold Certified Partners are the top level of Microsoft solutions partners and have access to the comprehensive set of Microsoft tools and support needed to serve client needs. To earn a Microsoft Gold certification, organizations must complete a rigorous set of tests to prove their level of expertise, offer a deep team of Microsoft Certified Professionals, submit customer references and demonstrate high levels of customer satisfaction as validated in customer surveys. EDTS earned Gold competency in Server Platforms, including the company among the top 1 percent of Microsoft partners worldwide.
“Attaining Gold Competency in Server Platforms ensures our customers that we offer the highest, most consistent capability among partners in this Microsoft solution area, and provide ‘best-in-class’ solutions that pass a rigorous approval process,” said Charles Johnson, EDTS President and CEO. “We’re extremely proud that our employees have passed all necessary Microsoft exams and appreciative that our clients assisted by supplying references. The Microsoft Partner Network requirements are far more stringent than in the past, and we’re excited to have met the bar once again.”

Areas of focus also include disaster recovery/business continuity planning, email security, virtualization and optimization, online services/cloud computing, network infrastructure and end-user support.

By doing so, EDTS is better positioned to help support customer business strategies through high levels of availability, agility, and automation.
