As the security landscape continues to evolve, it’s ever more important to work with partners who have proven experience providing comprehensive security solutions. Hitachi Solutions is honored to hold three Microsoft advanced specialization awards in security: Hybrid Security, Identity and Access Management and Threat Protection. These designations are a validation of our capabilities and our track record in successfully implementing leading edge security systems based on Azure.

Microsoft uses the ‘advanced specialization’ approach to identify the most trusted partners and advisors that can work with the most challenging cases, where the highest levels of quality and responsibility are required.  An advanced specialization is earned after a partner maintains a Gold competency. It demonstrates proven ability to deliver in a very specific service area. They are intentionally exclusive and harder to achieve.

“These designations attest to the skills and the expertise of Hitachi Solutions’ technical teams to continuously and reliably implement Microsoft Cloud services. Through our premier partnership with Microsoft, we’ve been awarded seven advanced specializations, are gold certified across the board, and are always expanding our knowledge on cutting-edge solutions to bring strategic guidance to our customers’ digital transformation initiatives,” said Joseph Scaravilli, Vice President of Cloud Enablement.

Here’s a look at our advanced specializations in the security realm:

Hybrid Cloud Security

The advanced specialization for hybrid security confirms Hitachi Solutions’ deep technical knowledge and capabilities to deliver cloud-based security solutions that protect data whether it is hosted on-premises or in multi-clouds, all while safeguarding your servers and networks.

Identity and Access Management

The Identity and Access Management advanced specialization was awarded due to Hitachi’s demonstrated expertise and experience deploying Microsoft Identity workloads with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD).  As the organizational barriers blur between who is in and out of your network, our specialized skills can help you manage identities not only for employees, but also for external partners, suppliers, distributors, and even consumers and customers.

Threat Protection

Threat protection is all about proactively protecting and monitoring the security of IP and customer data to safeguard your business. The Threat Protection specialization recognizes our validated technical capabilities in deploying Microsoft Threat Protection, Microsoft Cloud App Security, or Azure Sentinel workloads.

In addition to our security specializations, Hitachi Solutions has also been awarded several Azure-related specializations.

  • Analytics on Microsoft Azure: Planning and delivering tailored Microsoft analytics solutions using Azure Synapse Analytics, Azure Data Lake, Azure Data Factory, and Azure Databricks.
  • Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop: Deploying, scaling, and securing virtual desktop infrastructure on Azure, including deployment of an effective remote working environment.
  • Migration to Windows SQL: Infrastructure, modernization, and innovation, highlighting Hitachi Solutions’ capabilities in migrating Windows Server and SQL Server-based workloads to Azure.
  • Modernization of Web App to Microsoft Azure: Migrating and modernizing production web application workloads and managing application services in Azure.

Most recently, we received advanced specialization in Low Code Application Development. Low code application development allows non-developers (now being called citizen developers) the ability to build applications, significantly faster and at a fraction of the cost.

Our growing list of advanced specializations means that you can move forward confidently, knowing we have the demonstrated expertise and are committed to your success. If you are looking for a partner to help you establish an end-to-end security strategy, or embark on a complete digital transformation, Hitachi Solutions is your proven partner.
