CTI successfully passes its largest scale Cisco audit
CTI, a Russian systems integrator (SI), has successfully passed the largest scale Cisco’s recertification audit in its history. CTI has re-affirmed audited statuses and competences without a single remark: Gold Certified Partner, Master Collaboration, Master Security, Cloud & Managed Service Provider (CMSP) Master.
All the corporate procedures related to technical support, service and provision of cloud-based services were analyzed in detail in the course of a 2-day audit, and two 4-hour demos were conducted. All Cisco products from Collaboration and Security series with business case studies, practicing of various scenarios, etc. were presented to the team of auditors.
As a result of this audit, CTI has been given the most extensive and exclusive selection of Cisco’s partner statuses in Russia and the CIS. This is a testament to an exceptional degree of product knowledge CTI professionals have, and their technical expertise across the entire range of Cisco solutions. CTI demonstrated superior competences in cybersecurity, managed and cloud-based services, as well as business communications. Plus, CTI is Cisco’s only partner in Russia to have two master specializations at once – Master Security Specialization and Master Collaboration Specialization.
‘I would like to thank the entire CTI team that contributed to preparations for and the audit itself for professional excellence, 100-percent dedication and performance to the highest standards,’ says Denis Volyansky, General Manager at CTI. ‘I would like to underscore the fact that there was not a single remark, not a single suggestion with regard to improvement received from the auditors. This is an extremely rare thing for Cisco worldwide. For instance, this is only the second time in many years of service of the auditing agency’s representative. This is an excellent result!’
‘Partners are a cornerstone of Cisco’s business both in Russia and worldwide. By extending and improving their competences they drive development of the ICT industry and adoption of cutting-edge technologies that accelerate digital transformation,’ says Alexey Perevyazkin, Head of Corporate Customers at Cisco. ‘We are delighted that CTI has been successfully re-certified across the most extensive selection of specializations, including the most challenging and exclusive ones for Russia – Master Security Specialization and Master Collaboration Specialization. We are proud to be CTI’s partner, and have no doubts about our productive and effective cooperation in the future.’
