Thu, 4th Apr 2024

IT solutions provider Atturra announced that it has attained Cisco Gold Provider status for its managed services business. This marks a significant achievement in offering enhanced connectivity and efficiency and optimising overall cybersecurity and network performance in the Australian market.

Atturra, a prime player within the Australian IT service scene, has joined an elite group of companies recognised for exhibiting a high level of proficiency in building, managing, and supporting managed services powered by Cisco technologies. The prestigious Gold Service Provider status was granted following intense third-party auditing of Atturra's services and expertise in Meraki SD-WAN Powered Service, Cisco SASE network architecture, and full-stack observability technologies.

Responding to the achievement, Chris McLaughlin, Executive General Manager for Atturra's Managed Services business, emphasised the significance of this recognition. "We are delighted that our investment in building out our capability in the provision of Cisco Powered managed services across functions, including our workspace and architecture practices, has been recognised and awarded," he said.

He reinforced how decisive this certification is for Atturra's competitive status in the global market. "This certification is testament to our ability to compete with global services companies with an expert team on the ground here in Australia with world-class skills able to deliver innovation and, ultimately, a great customer experience," McLaughlin continued.

He highlighted how the synergy between Cisco’s global strategy and Atturra's business trajectory is highly beneficial for both companies. "At the same time, the relationship reinforces both companies' business momentum which has seen Cisco's global strategy shift in recent years to annuity-based services for which Atturra is one hundred per cent in lockstep to support and achieve mutual business success," he added.

Atturra's managed and monitored flexible, on-demand services are rendered by a competent, Australian-based team of certified engineers, offering comprehensive solution packages including cloud and infrastructure, modern workplace, enterprise network services, cybersecurity, application managed services, as well as hardware and software procurement. All are engineered around its ITSM and ITIL practice management.

The endorsement from Rodney Hamill, Cisco's Managing Director of the Partner Organisation for Australia and New Zealand, reinforces the recognition. "We're thrilled Atturra has attained Cisco Gold Provider status, a testament to their exceptional dedication as a Cisco partner. We value their innovation, investment and partnership," he commended.

McLaughlin emphasised the reliability this certification offers to its customers. "Businesses need partners they can trust. Our new partnership status provides reassurance that we have the leading expertise required to meet our clients' rigorous IT services requirements with products from an industry pioneer and innovator," he stated.
