ECS Passes AWS Audit as Managed Service Provider Partner for Fifth Year

May 16, 2019

FAIRFAX, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 16, 2019--

ECS, a recognized leader in cybersecurity, cloud managed services, agile development, digital transformation, advanced engineering, and Amazon Web Services (AWS) solutions, has been accepted into the elite group of AWS Managed Service Provider (MSP) Partners for the fifth year in a row. The AWS MSP program is comprised of partners who excel at delivering solutions on AWS through a managed service model. In order to obtain the MSP Partner designation, MSP Partners meet the AWS Managed Service Provider Program requirements, including a third-party audit of their MSP capabilities.

The third-party audit distinguishes ECS as a partner who has demonstrated expertise to support customers through all phases of cloud adoption lifecycle, including plan, design, migrate, build, and optimize. With the Audited MSP program, AWS distinguishes partners that provide the best experience for their customers in delivering AWS cloud managed service.

John Sankovich, vice president of cloud solutions, said, “ECS’ audited MSP designation is a key component of our ability to continue helping customers leverage the innovation of the AWS platform, and we’re very proud of the unique AWS recognition for our MSP expertise for the fifth year in a row.”

The AWS MSP audit is rigorous, and each year, AWS raises the technical and operational requirements, including extensive successful past performance and public use case references. The audit included technical capabilities such as machine learning, in addition to assessments of business health, cloud capabilities, overall AWS expertise, business management, billing and cost management, solution design, application migration, security, support, service levels agreements, optimization, and customer satisfaction.

The AWS “audited” stamp provides reassurance to potential customers that by choosing ECS, they are partnering with AWS experts who have the strategic insight and rich understanding of IT cloud modernization projects.

Sankovich said, “Our customers turn to AWS more and more for their mission-critical workloads. The AWS MSP audit provides these customers with the confidence that AWS has evaluated ECS and has determined that we meet the highest level of MSP requirements and capabilities.”
