Scalar Becomes Cisco Master Security Specialized and Gold Certified Partner

Scalar Decisions (‘Scalar’), the Toronto-headquartered IT solutions provider, announced today that they have achieved both Master Security Specialization and Gold Certified Partner with Cisco. Scalar is one of only three companies in Canada to achieve the combined accolades.

Gold certified partners have the broadest range of skills across all Cisco technologies. They have proven their ability to deliver Cisco solutions and hybrid IT services.

A Master Specialized Partner is recognized as an expert in one or more of Cisco’s key technology areas. This is the highest specialization level and is only given to partners who have in-depth knowledge of technology solution areas critical to the customers’ infrastructure.

“Achieving both Master Security Specialization and Gold Certified Partner designations is an amazing feat for our company, and should give our clients great confidence in our ability to support their projects for successful business outcomes,” said Theo Van Wyk, CTO Security at Scalar. “We are thrilled to grow our business with Cisco and continue to invest in the great partnership we have.”

To achieve these designations, Scalar underwent an audit and evaluation process to validate both their technical and delivery capabilities.
