As the security landscape evolves, it’s even more important to work with a partner who has proven experience providing comprehensive security solutions. Successfully and safely connecting all our devices and our data requires a partner that can work with the most challenging cases, a partner that has demonstrated the highest levels of quality and responsibility, and the proven ability to deliver. That is why Microsoft invests in partner programs that are intentionally exclusive and harder to achieve — so customers know they are working with the best partner to safeguard their business.

Our Hitachi Solutions’ team has achieved not one, but four, Microsoft Security specializations: Hybrid Security, Identity and Access Management, Threat Protection, and Information Protection and Governance. These achievements are a validation of our capabilities – and our track record – in successfully supporting customers who are implementing leading-edge security systems based on Azure.

These designations also attest to the skills and expertise of Hitachi Solutions’ technical teams to implement Microsoft Cloud services continuously and reliably. Our team is on a never-ending cycle of expanding our knowledge on cutting-edge solutions to bring strategic guidance to our customers’ digital transformation initiatives.

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

Specializations in Security

Information Protection and Governance

With the exponential growth of data and increasing data mobility, customers need expert guidance on implementing effective information protection solutions, and they need strategic insights that allow them to better manage and mitigate the risks associated with unstructured data. This specialization acknowledges Hitachi Solutions’ ability to provide stellar information protection and governance programs, while meeting stringent service delivery and support requirements.

Hybrid Cloud Security

The 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 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.

Specializations in Azure

Analytics on Microsoft Azure

The Analytics on Microsoft Azure specialization validates Hitachi Solutions’ deep experience in planning and delivering analytics solutions in Microsoft Azure, enabling customers to build transformative and secure analytical solutions at an enterprise scale. It includes the following Microsoft analytics solutions: Azure Synapse Analytics, Azure Data Lake, Azure Data Factory, and Azure Databricks.

Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop

The Virtual Desktop specialization recognizes Hitachi Solutions’ implementation of cloud adoption best practices for deploying, scaling, and securing virtual desktop infrastructure on Azure, including effective remote working environments. The recognition also includes acknowledgment of Hitachi Solutions’ ability to conduct well-architected reviews of customer workloads as part of the deployment.

Migration to Windows SQL

To achieve the Windows Server and SQL Server Migration to Microsoft Azure specialization, we’ve demonstrated deep knowledge, extensive experience, and proven success in migrating Windows Server and SQL Server-based production workloads to Microsoft Azure. The designation also notes excellent work with infrastructure modernization and innovation

Modernization of Web App to Microsoft Azure

This specialization was awarded for expertise in migrating and modernizing web-based application workloads and services in Azure. To receive the designation, Hitachi Solutions demonstrated deep knowledge, extensive experience, and proven success in migrating and deploying production web application workloads, applying DevOps, and managing app services.

Hitachi Solutions is 100% focused on Microsoft solutions and technologies. As Microsoft continues to invest in building specializations across its platform, our experts are investing to meet, and exceed, the demanding requirements. Specializations further differentiate our capabilities by requiring a third-party audit to prove the attainment of the relevant skillset and to meet the specialization’s required performance measures.

Low Code Application Development

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

Our growing list of specializations, built on top of our achievement of all six Microsoft solution designations, 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.
