Microsoft Awards KEMP With Gold Communications Competency 
KEMP Demonstrates Best-in-Class Competency and Market Leadership in
Support of Key Microsoft Workloads With Its Award Winning LoadMaster
Load Balancers and Application Delivery Controllers 
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/11/13 --  KEMP Technologies today
announced it has attained Gold Communications competency
demonstrating a "best-in-class" ability and commitment to meet
Microsoft customers' evolving needs in today's dynamic business
environment and distinguishing itself within the top 1 percent of the
Microsoft partner ecosystem.  
To earn a Microsoft gold competency, partners must successfully
complete exams (resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals) to
prove their level of technology expertise, and then designate these
certified professionals uniquely to one Microsoft competency,
ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. They also must submit
customer references that demonstrate successful projects (along with
implementing a yearly customer satisfaction study), meet a revenue
commitment (for most gold competencies), and pass technology and/or
sales assessments.  
KEMP has a long history of partnering with Microsoft to deliver load
balancing and application delivery solutions optimized for Microsoft
workloads including Lync Server, Exchange, SharePoint, Remote
Desktop, ADFS and others. KEMP's load balancers and application
delivery controllers are universally recognized for offering robust
performance, a comprehensive feature set and ease of deployment.  
Becoming Microsoft Communications certified means KEMP customers will
be provided with the highest level of support from best-in-class
technical experts. Gold status is known as the pinnacle of Microsoft
certification and is held only by elite Microsoft partners. KEMP
continues to go above and beyond customer expectations by supporting
them with Microsoft communications solutions that can be integrated
into their business strategy.
