ProSource Announces Exciting New IaaS Partnership

Award winning Microsoft Partners, Certified Security Solutions and ProSource forge a strategic joint venture to transform how businesses keep pace with changing technology; assemble, store, and manage big data to drive profitability.

Cleveland, OH – September 19, 2013 –Two technology and innovation powerhouses, Certified Security Solutions, Inc. (CSS), a leading provider of cloud infrastructure management services and information security solutions, and ProSource Solutions, LLC (ProSource), a leading provider of infrastructure solutions and application development services, are pleased to announce a joint venture designed to help companies eliminate the outdated, inflexible and overly-costly practice of building, managing and supporting individual data centers by transitioning to an efficient and scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service (Iaas) enterprise strategy.

Lowell Messner, President and CEO of ProSource stated, “The time has come for IaaS.  Our experience shows us that two factors are absolutely stifling businesses and IT departments: 1) the creation, storage and usage of data is simply exploding.  Companies are having a difficult time transforming their technology environment fast enough in order to be agile to support the explosion of data, while at the same time IT departments are being challenged to do more with less.  2) Technology is changing faster than ever before.  People are working remotely and choosing to utilize an ever increasing number of devices and apps placing insurmountable stress upon legacy investments around traditional IT Enterprise Systems that need to provide the ability for people to work where ever they need with speed and efficiency, securely. The old model of every company spending significant sums of money building, maintaining and supporting its own data center are no longer reasonable.  Fortunately, there are world class tools, products and services available to relieve this stress and offer a better solution for business. Together ProSource and CSS are enriching their offerings with the goal of providing cloud based solutions founded on enterprise class security. This is truly an exciting day for us, CSS and our clients.”

Kevin von Keyserling, President and CEO of CSS added, “IaaS delivered via a private and/or public cloud is the perfect solution to the challenges faced by today’s companies. The future of data storage, management and usage is IaaS – giving companies the flexibility to cope with technology systems that seem to change annually. Elastic and efficient infrastructure cloud solutions drive costs down, maximize utilization, are incredibly secure and allow for the pace and agility needed in today’s rapidly changing business climate. CSS and ProSource’s StratusBuilder™ cloud solution enables every business to have a first-in-class private cloud easily, quickly and inexpensively. “We could not be happier to bring these services and savings to our customers.”

As Microsoft Gold Certified Partners with over 20 years of combined infrastructure expertise, CSS and ProSource are uniquely positioned to serve as thought leaders in the evolving infrastructure space, propelling customers to the cloud and away from the costly and outdated datacenter model.

Jeff Welch, Executive Vice President of ProSource stated “We are so very impressed by the collaboration products Microsoft has developed and made available. Our experience is that businesses that focus on unifying communications and improving collaboration among their team members experience amazing results in increased productivity and efficiency, sometimes saving millions of dollars per year per implementation. These results are why companies are in such a hurry to learn more and take advantage of what is out in the marketplace. If a company has not evaluated and implemented these products, it likely is losing ground to its competitors that are. We strongly encourage everyone in the area to attend this conference and learn first-hand what is possible.”
