Sponsored by Businesswire

Applied Insight, a leading technology company serving federal government customers, announced that it has earned Amazon Web Services’ Managed Service Provider validation. This establishes Applied Insight as the only AWS Managed Service Provider partner in the national security and defense industry to also hold the Direct Connect competency, an essential capability for hybrid-cloud solutions.

“Our customers have an urgent need to access data and capabilities available in the cloud, but they may still need to rely on legacy equipment and networks,” said Adam Gruber, CTO of Applied Insight. “This is why hybrid- and multi-cloud capabilities are critical. Applied Insight’s designation as an AWS Managed Service Provider demonstrates our ability to architect, build and manage complex enterprise cloud systems, and our Direct Connect competency means we can enable our customers to interface directly with cloud resources. We are committed to our strong relationship with AWS, and we will continue to invest in our products and teams to drive innovation.”

Applied Insight has a team of nearly 100 AWS Certified cloud technologists and has been an AWS Advanced Partner since 2017. The company currently assists several federal government customers with leveraging the agility, breadth of service and pace of innovation enabled by the AWS cloud ecosystem. Applied Insight is recognized by AWS for achieving the following qualifications: Government Consulting Competency, Managed Service Provider, Public Sector Partner, Solution Provider, Public Sector Solution Provider and Direct Connect Delivery.

AWS MSP Partners help customers solve complex business needs at any stage of their cloud adoption journey. The program validation process consists of a rigorous multiday on-site audit performed by an independent third-party auditor to confirm the partner’s ability to provide next-generation managed services and capabilities in AWS cloud architecture, automation and optimization. Successfully completing the audit ensures customers that Applied Insight has deep expertise in AWS products and features and that its business processes deliver the high level of customer focus for which AWS is known.
