Canonical becomes MSP Cloud Verify certified

Canonical, the publisher of Ubuntu, announced the completion of the MSP Cloud Verify Certification (MSPCV) process for its support and managed services. The purpose of this certification is to provide assurance that Canonical has met and exceeded the well-established standards of security, data confidentiality, risk management, and quality of service.

 The MSPCV certification further strengthens Canonical’s open source offering, reassuring customers in all industries that they can securely consume open source in a regulated fashion that complies with all the industry standards and best practices, according to the vendor.

Canonical has created an alternative approach providing managed services from within the same organization where the technology itself is being developed to simplify the way open source is being consumed. By ensuring managed services teams are working side by side with the engineers that develop products such as OpenStack and Kubernetes, Canonical has created an efficient operational model providing production-level SLAs at the minimum time required to resolve any issue.

The MSPCV Certification is well recognized by thousands of organizations worldwide across many industries including insurance, financial, legal and medical.

It has been reviewed by governmental agencies and regulatory bodies across the globe and is used and accepted in 5 continents around the world.

Achieving this certification ensures that Canonical is under constant external review from MSPAlliance and the IT profession to continually maintain and improve security standards and the quality of its managed services.

Canonical helps enterprises minimise skill gaps, cut operational costs and simplify their cloud adoption journeys by providing comprehensive managed services for open source cloud solutions like OpenStack, Kubernetes, Ceph, databases and applications.

“By achieving the MSP Cloud Verify Certification, we continue to ensure security, quality and reliability for our customers” said David Booth, VP of cloud native applications at Canonical. “In the very competitive world we’re living in today, you want to be focused on strategy and driving your business forward rather than keeping the lights on.”

In addition to this announcement, Canonical is also offering Ubuntu Livepatch on-prem, an enhancement to its Ubuntu Livepatch service enabling organizations to take control of their kernel live-patching policy.

Designed for complex enterprise environments that follow their own patch rollout policy, Ubuntu Livepatch on-prem provides the basis for an efficient but fine-tuned continuous vulnerability management on private, hybrid, or public clouds. It provides a functional and productive experience to system administrators, or IT operations teams.
