San Antonio, TX–30 September, 2020—Sirius Computer Solutions, Inc. (Sirius), a leading national IT solutions integrator, today announced it has earned the Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop (formerly Windows Virtual Desktop) advanced specialization, a validation of a partner’s deep knowledge, extensive experience and expertise in deploying, scaling and securing virtual desktop infrastructure on Azure.

Only partners that meet stringent criteria around customer success and staff skilling, as well as pass a third-party audit of their Azure Virtual Desktop technical practices, are able to earn the Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop advanced specialization.

Supporting secure remote work for employees is more critical than ever. Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop is a Microsoft solution that seamlessly integrates with other Microsoft products and allows customers to implement virtual desktops in a scalable, secure, and cost-effective way.

Partners with validated capabilities in implementing Azure Virtual Desktop can help customers deploy and navigate the licensing efficiencies it offers to deliver the solution that is most efficient for their organization.

“With a goal of helping our clients become more innovative, agile, and secure, we try to invest in areas that provide the greatest value to them,” said Lisa Cuthbertson, vice president of Sales & Operations for Sirius’ MessageOps division. “As organizations across the globe continue to rely on remote work, achieving the Azure Virtual Desktop advanced specialization helps the Sirius team ensure we continue to provide the level of expertise our clients expect, and the skills they depend on for a successful implementation,”
