The MSPAllianceÂ® has enhanced MSP/Cloud Verify Program (MSPCV), the oldest certification program for cloud computing and managed services providers, the company said.
The MSPCV is based on the 10 control objectives of the Unified Certification Standard for Cloud and MSPs. The enhancements include infrastructure as a Service risk assessments; Microsoft (and other vendors) SPLA licensing controls; improved corporate health reporting; improved internal MSP security controls, such as password management; significant improvements around MSP responses to ransomware and other cyber security attacks on client systems.
The MSPCV was the first certification created specifically for the managed services and cloud industry. Every certification comes with a written report with the entire process documented, validated and signed by a 3rd party accounting firm. The MSPCV has been reviewed by governmental agencies and regulatory bodies across the globe and is used and accepted in 5 continents around the world.
MSPCV was created, using a wide base of criteria, to certify cloud and Managed IT Solution Providers thereby ensuring that they have met and exceed well-established standards of excellence and client care. Customers who select a company that has been MSP/Cloud Verified can also rest assured that their provider has met and exceeded the best practices of the IT profession.
