Commenting on this latest achievement, Pat O’Callaghan, Director at Ekco, said: “Everyone is aware that the complexity and diversity of security threats is on the rise.

This achievement demonstrates the depth of expertise we offer our customers to ensure they have everything they need to work efficiently and securely in the cloud with Microsoft. I’d like to thank our team for their incredible work, and Microsoft for recognising our commitment to delivering best-in-class solutions and services to our customers.”
