The iGaming security provider will now be a member of the tech behemoth’s Microsoft Partnership Network, joining big names in the software business who have “proven expertise in delivering quality solutions.”

A silver certification places a company in the top 5% of Microsoft’s partners and allows the firm to provide Microsoft-related products and services, but it’s not easy to attain.

The ranking requires a company to subject itself to close scrutiny and pass various tests before Microsoft will even consider awarding it the much sought-after silver competency level.

The tests give the tech giant an opportunity to determine a company’s ability to deliver high-quality software, solutions and support based on Microsoft technologies.

“Achieving Silver Partner status with Microsoft is a strategic step for Continent 8 and forms part of continued efforts to be the leading multi-cloud solutions provider to organisations in the global gambling industry,” remarked Michael Tobin, Founder and CEO of Continent 8 Technologies.

As a result of its new status, Continent 8 will see its existing cloud offering enhanced with the addition of Microsoft Azure Stack, a hybrid cloud platform that lets companies deliver services from its data centres.

According to the company, “this will allow partners to refresh their virtualisation host using a hybrid and hyperconverged solution integrated with Azure,” which will go live in the coming weeks.

Justin Cosnett, Chief Product Officer at Continent 8 Technologies, commented: “Our cloud offering continues to develop, and I’m delighted that Continent 8 has joined the Microsoft Partner Network having achieved Silver Partner status.

“A big thank you to the team involved in obtaining this accreditation. The certification acknowledges our proven expertise in delivering quality cloud solutions to our customers.”
