CloudSphere Ups the Game for Managed Service Providers with Robust New Software Release
CloudSphere’s comprehensive software release delivers advanced security, continuous visibility, improved management and optimization capabilities to Azure customers
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – June 6, 2019 – CloudSphere, a market leader in hybrid Cloud Management Platforms (CMP), today announced a milestone CloudSphere software release that delivers advanced security and management functionality to Microsoft Azure customers. The Company also announced it has achieved full compliance with the CMP requirements outlined within the Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Service Provider (MSP) certification and audit program, providing businesses seeking Azure Expert MSP status with the necessary tools to simplify and streamline the comprehensive vetting and audit process.
“Despite the accelerating pace of cloud adoption, the central questions we get from our MSP customers haven’t changed – how can I better manage, optimize, secure and govern my cloud deployments; and how can we make money by offering new services in the cloud, respectively,” said Manoj Nair, HyperGrid Founder. “Today’s announcement is significant in that it answers these central questions. The 6.2 Platform Release delivers a comprehensive set of management, governance and security features to Microsoft Azure customers, ensuring IT can not only deliver peak value to the organization but maximize the return on their cloud investments. Further, CloudSphere now provides the specific functionality that maps directly to Azure Expert MSP program requirements, simplifying and streamlining what can be a resource intensive testing and auditing process.”
Jeana Jorgensen, General Manager, Cloud Commercial Communities, Microsoft Corp. said, “Businesses migrating to the cloud seek confidence that their chosen partners have based their solutions and services on a fully vetted and compliant cloud management platform. CloudSphere’s strong integration with Microsoft Azure CSP APIs allows CSPs to accelerate their ability to deliver value added services for governance and cost control.”
The 6.2 Platform Release introduces a number of key customer benefits to Azure customers. Customers can now control security posture in real time, sustain audit readiness with continuous compliance monitoring, and secure agile cloud-ops with role-based policy guard rails that minimize the attack surface in hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
