The Cisco Channel Partner Program provides a framework for partners to build the sales, technical and business architecture skills required to deliver Cisco solutions. Through the program’s specialisations and certifications, Cisco recognizes a partner’s expertise in deploying solutions based on Cisco advanced technologies and services. Using a third-party audit process, the program validates a partner’s technology skills, business practices, customer satisfaction, pre-sales and post-sales support capabilities and other critical factors customers consider when choosing a trusted partner.

“Congratulations to Ironshare for hitting Select status, it’s been great to welcome them to the Cisco Channel Partner Program and see their progress,” said Vijay Mistry, Partner Account Manager at Cisco UK. “This achievement reflects their dedication to the skills required to support customers within the security technology sector. We are excited to work with Ironshare and support their customer’s needs.”
