May 6, 2021

TORONTO, May 6, 2021 – WatServ announced today that it has earned the Azure Windows Virtual Desktop advanced specialization (formerly called Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop), a validation of the company’s deep knowledge and extensive experience in deploying, scaling and securing virtual desktop infrastructure on Azure.

To achieve the specialization, WatServ was required to pass an intensive, third-party audit that evaluated its Azure Virtual Desktop technical practices. These capabilities help customers deploy and navigate the licensing efficiencies to deliver an ideal solution.

WatServ also met stringent criteria around customer success and staff skilling, with members of its team holding the following certifications: Azure Security Engineer, Azure Solutions Architect, Azure Administrator and Microsoft 365 Enterprise Administrator Expert.

“I’m proud of the WatServ team for showcasing our technical capabilities in earning this demanding specialization,” said Dave Lacey, CEO of WatServ. “One of WatServ’s greatest strengths is our commitment to innovation which enables us to provide modern, high-value cloud technology solutions for our clients. Our team is made up of some of the brightest minds in the industry and this specialization only serves to confirm our level of proficiency.”

Gavriella Schuster, Corporate Vice President, One Commercial Partner (OCP) at Microsoft Corp. added, “The Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop advanced specialization highlights the partners who can be viewed as most capable when it comes to deploying Azure Virtual Desktop in Azure. WatServ clearly demonstrated that they have both the skills and the experience to offer clients a path to transition to desktop-as-a-service in a scalable, secure, and cost-effective way.”

As many organizations move to remote or hybrid workplace models, Azure Virtual Desktop has become a critical component of their technology strategy.  Azure Virtual Desktop is a Microsoft solution that seamlessly integrates with other Microsoft products and allows customers to implement virtual desktops in an ideal manner.
