Today, Microsoft recognizes Ensim as a new Gold Certified Partner for demonstrating its expertise in providing customer satisfaction using Microsoft products and technology.” As one of the requirements for maintaining Gold Certified Partner status, Ensim had to declare its Microsoft Competencies, which have a unique set of requirements and benefits, formulated to accurately represent the specific skills and services that partners bring to the technology industry. Within select Competencies, there are Specializations that focus on specific solution areas that recognize deeper expertise within that Competency.

The Advanced Infrastructure Solutions Competency is designed for partners that specialize in infrastructure solutions such systems management; this competency provides the information, tools, and support customers need to help expand their business. Ensim’s Specialization within this competency is for Microsoft Active Directory. “Partners need resources designed to support their expertise in managing the identities and relationships that make up their customers’ networks using Active Directory—an integral component of the Windows Server products,” said Mark Hassall, director of Infrastructure Partner Marketing at Microsoft Corp. “Specializations with security and identity products such as Active Directory enables partners to expand their skill sets in order to help customers understand how they can best ensure the privacy and security of their stored information and communications.” The Security Solutions Competency is designed to recognize the unique skills and requirements of partners specializing in delivering security-based solutions.

“Our customers tell us that they want integrated solutions, and we are listening and delivering in a way that no one else is,” said John “JG” Chirapurath, director of marketing for the Identity and Security Division at Microsoft Corp. “By bringing together the platform, applications, identity infrastructure, and security and management to deliver integrated solutions, we’re ensuring our customer’s success by helping them to save time, reduce costs and protect their environment.” The Microsoft Partner Program was launched in October 2003 and represents Microsoft’s ongoing commitment to the success of partners worldwide.
