Protera Has Earned the Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop Advanced Specialization


CHICAGO, Illinois, September  8, 2022  –  Protera today announced it has earned the Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop advanced specialization, a validation of a solution partner’s deep expertise in deploying, optimizing, and securing, Azure Virtual Desktop infrastructure.

Only Microsoft Gold Partners that meet stringent criteria around customer success and service delivery, as well as pass a third-party audit of their deployment and management practices, are able to earn the Azure Virtual Desktop advanced specialization.

As companies look to modernize with cloud while taking full advantage of enabling secure remote work environments for their organization, Azure Virtual Desktop seamlessly integrates with other Microsoft products for a scalable, secure, and cost-effective solution. 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.

A Microsoft Gold Partner with four gold competencies and now three advanced specializations and a Microsoft preferred partner for migrating SAP to Azure, Protera has long been serving enterprise clients in developing strategic cloud modernization solutions and services.

“We are proud to be among the top Microsoft partners who have achieved this designation, highlighting our commitment to securely enabling the future of business for our clients,” commented Mike BeDell, CEO, Protera. “This advanced specialization deepens Protera’s commitment to our clients by providing reliable, scalable and modern global workplace solutions while aligning with Microsoft’s digital transformation vision.”

The Windows Server and SQL Server Migration to Microsoft Azure advanced specialization highlights the partners who can be viewed as most capable when it comes to migrating Windows-based workloads over to Azure.
