Logicalis Named a Cisco IoT Authorization Partner

NEW YORK –February 26, 2019 – Logicalis, an international IT solutions and managed services provider, today announced it is among the first to achieve Cisco IoT Authorization Partner status. This designation enables Logicalis to bring new technologies and architectures to market to help its customers embrace digital transformation.

“This status perfectly demonstrates Logicalis’ ability to implement simple, secure and scalable end-to-end IoT solutions based on architectures and open standards that integrate with third-party legacy equipment,” said Vince DeLuca, CEO, Logicalis U.S. “As a Cisco Global Gold partner and now an IoT Authorization Partner, this reinforces our commitment to our customers not just at a local level, but globally.”

To earn recognition as a Cisco IoT Authorization partner, companies must have a set number of employees with experience delivering IoT solutions. They are also required to have completed rigorous role-based training and passed exams in IoT disciplines. Cisco introduced its IoT partner authorization in November 2018 at the Cisco Partner Summit and officially launched the program last month.

“This recognition is a win not only for Logicalis, but also for our customers who are looking to advance digital transformation initiatives in their organizations,” said Mike Houghton, CSO, Logicalis. “We have transformed our sales techniques to be aligned vertically, and IoT is integral to this. Combining this specialized approach with the Cisco IoT Authorization will further bolster our ability to provide our customers with the best and most IoT customized solutions.”
