Global technology distributor Westcon-Comstor has achieved Amazon Web Services' Security Competency status.
The Security Competency sits within the identity and access management category of AWS' competency program.
Claiming to be the first IT distributor to earn the status in APAC, the designation identifies Westcon-Comstor as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that meets the standards for security, compliance and architecture, providing specialised software designed to help enterprise customers adopt, develop and deploy ‘complex’ security projects on AWS, Westcon-Comstor said.
“This recognition underscores our commitment to delivering secure, compliant, and innovative cloud solutions to our customers,” said Patrick Aronson, executive vice president of Asia Pacific (APAC) at Westcon-Comstor.
“Achieving the AWS Security Competency in the Identity and Access Management Category demonstrates Westcon-Comstor have deep technical expertise with AWS security and proven customer success securing the cloud journey with their vendor solutions and services offerings," said Jeremiah Jenson, global leader of distribution at AWS.
"We look forward to further accelerating AWS Partner success with Westcon-Comstor across the APAC region,” he added.
Westcon-Comstor Asia managing director Wilson Ho agreed with Aronson's sentiments. "Security has always been one of our core business pillars," he said.
"[The award] will give our customers added confidence that we are equipped with the needed technical expertise with security in AWS and we are specialists in delivering security-focused solutions for their specific workload and use cases.”
AWS launched the Security Competency offerings in July, claiming the eight new categories align with work streams and functional areas that “customers commonly encounter during their cloud journey”.
