Strategic change enablement agency CDS has secured the coveted accreditation as a Cloudflare Authorised Service Delivery Partner (ASDP). The Leeds-based agency is also the first organisation in the EMEA region to achieve this status.
In January 2023, content delivery network provider Cloudflare unveiled its ASDP partnership programme. The team describes its partners as those who “meet high standards of professional services delivery on Cloudflare One”.
CDS will now benefit from exclusive perks, including access to named Cloudflare One service delivery managers and partner incentive funds. With this official backing, the firm can continue to help the UK’s largest organisations get the best value from their chosen technology.
Miguel Ferreira, head of cloud services for CDS, said: “We are thrilled to be the first agency in EMEA to achieve Cloudflare’s ASDP status. Being a part of this programme is critical for us because it validates our commitment to excellence and provides us with the tools and support we need to deliver successful engagements.”
Cloudflare also offers its partners access to the Descaler programme, which helps customers migrate from Zscaler to Cloudflare One.
CDS has already made incredible strides since being made partners in 2020. The team has applied Cloudflare’s resources and funds to projects in both the public and private sectors, securing long-term business continuity.
With a three-pronged approach of cyber security, resilience, and Zero Trust models, CDS continues to help their clients solve modern-day digital challenges. And following CDS’ lead as the first partners in the EMEA region, new members joining the programme include Zero Trust specialists, security assessors, and advisory and migration services.
Ferreira continued: “At CDS, we consider ourselves to be the champions of our clients, helping them to navigate and enable change. Part of this is giving them confidence to make significant technology decisions that could make or break their aspirations for digital transformation. Being able to rely on a professional services partner with Cloudflare ASDP status, significantly reduces the risk associated with these types of decisions.
“We look forward to working closely with the Cloudflare team to deliver innovative solutions and exceptional customer experiences.”
