Bridewell Strengthens Core Portfolio With Modern Workplace and Security Partnership

Published 20 October 2021

We are pleased to announce our partnership with Microsoft Gold Partner, Core Technology Systems, for provision of Microsoft cloud-based managed services covering Modern Workplace and Employee Experience solutions and services.

Core is a Microsoft Gold Partner and cloud and IT managed service provider, with a respected 31‑year history and long-standing relationship with Microsoft. With ten gold competencies and a strategic focus on Microsoft technology, Core’s Managed Service Desk provides enterprise-level user support, creating a strategic platform on which to add managed security services from Bridewell; strengthening our offering to Core and Bridewell clients.

As a Microsoft Gold Partner for cloud and security, Bridewell complements and extends the Core portfolio capability. We strive to ensure our security services add value to the businesses we serve, and we are strategically aligned to the technology development and direction taken by Microsoft; making Core an ideal strategic partner with their specialist focus on the Microsoft portfolio.

We are committed to ensuring scope and deliverables meet client needs and believe our partnership with Core unlocks smarter ways of working for our clients. Through a trusted relationship and agile approaches to service delivery, together we enable secure transformation, protection and growth for our clients.

Collaboration with Microsoft

Our Director of Managed Security Services, Martin Riley, commented, “We share Core’s commitment to collaborate with Microsoft and deliver best-of-breed services, ensuring client needs are met for secure transformation through combining  IT, Cloud and Cyber Security strategies. We look forward to operating as an extension of the Core team, or where preferred, an extension of the in-house teams for Core clients, and improving their ability to protect against, detect, and rapidly respond to security threats.”

Like Bridewell, Core understands that your organisation deserves secure, reliable, trustworthy, and responsive expert IT support so you can focus on what you do best. Core helps to optimise solutions for your desired business outcomes; transforming, enabling, and now securing customers with the evolution of Microsoft business solutions across the UK.

Core Workshop Portfolio

The Core workshop portfolio covers all aspects of the Microsoft modern workplace including productivity, collaboration, identity, security and compliance and communication, as well as new Microsoft Viva employee experience workshops; with interactive and engaging sessions that bring technology to life.
