Dresner Group Completes MSP Verify Certification
Columbia, MD January 3, 2020 -- MSP Verify Program Provides Quality Assurance, and Stamp of Reliability for Current, Potential Customers
Dresner Group today announced that it has successfully completed the MSPAlliance’s MSP Verify Program (MSPV) certification process, the oldest certification program for cloud computing and managed services providers. The MSPV is based on the Unified Certification StandardTM (UCS) for Cloud and Managed Service Providers and developed by the International Association of Cloud and Managed Service Providers.
"The MSPV certification is a rigorous process that benchmarks and verifies the quality of the company providing cloud and/or managed services,” said Celia Weaver, MSPAlliance® president. "We are very proud to have Dresner Group as a member of this elite community of MSPs and cloud providers.”
MSP Verify Program
The UCS consists of 10 control objectives and underlying controls that constitute crucial building blocks of a successful managed services (and cloud computing) practice. Once the provider’s organization has completed all MSPV documentation on all applicable control objectives (with the assistance of MSPAlliance's readiness assessments, gap analysis, helpful templates and consulting) the results are then examined by an independent third-party accounting firm for verification and signing of a public-facing report.
As with any other certification of this type, the MSPV certification must be renewed annually. The MSPV was the first certification created specifically for the managed services and cloud industry. The MSPV has been reviewed by governmental agencies and regulatory bodies across the globe and is used and accepted in 5 continents around the world.
Customers who select a company that is part of the MSPV can also rest assured that their IT solution provider has met and exceeded the following standards dealing with:
●Objective 1: Governance,
● Objective 2: Policies and Procedures,
● Objective 3: Confidentiality and Privacy,
● Objective 4: Change Management,
●Objective 5: Service Operations Management,
● Objective 6: Information Security,
● Objective 7: Data Management,
● Objective 8: Physical Security,
● Objective 9: Billing and Reporting,
● Objective 10: Corporate Health.
“I am proud that Dresner Group has again had its abilities validated by an authority such as MSPAlliance’ said Michael Deskin, COO and Managing Partner of Dresner Group. “I hope knowing we have that completed this program for 5 consecutive years will help to encourage businesses around us to consider DG as the best option to cover their IT needs.”
