Salt Essential IT wins global award

29 June 2018 | Business

Salt Essential IT has won the 2018 Microsoft Country Partner of the Year Award for Namibia.

The company was honoured among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and the implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.

According to the business development manager at Salt Essential IT, Vanessa Maresch, it was their Email eXchange Point (EXP) that won them the award.

“With this service, our customers can safely access the internet without having to build up their own infrastructure. We experienced how it makes Namibian companies more profitable and more resilient in our difficult economic climate,” she said.

Salt Essential IT was recognised for providing outstanding solutions and services, as well as representing excellent subsidiary engagement in Namibia.

“We are honoured to recognise Namibia’s Salt Essential IT as winner of the year. The company has distinguished itself as a top partner, exemplifying the remarkable expertise and innovation we see in our Microsoft partner community to deliver transformative solutions” said corporate vice-president for Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Group, Gavriella Schuster.

Awards were presented in several categories, with winners chosen from a set of more than 2 600 entrants from 115 countries worldwide.

Maresch will be departing to Las Vegas on the 15 July to receive the award.

Salt is a privately owned fully licensed Cloud service provider that paves the way in Namibia, with innovative new technologies and IT solutions.

Salt’s Microsoft certified engineers are experienced in setting up and managing data centres.

Its Cloud solutions empower their customers’ employees to work better and faster, from anywhere, at any time.

Salt’s disaster recovery service copies data in real-time, as people work, to the data centre and therefore enables companies to carry on with business after they have been hit by a disaster such as fire or theft.

Namibia has 700 000 internet users. Salt is currently moving 5% of them to Cloud.

In the IT world, Cloud is used as another word for the internet.

Cloud computing means that different services such as servers, storage and applications are delivered to an organisation's computers and devices through the internet. The Cloud infrastructure is maintained by the provider, not the individual customer. This makes users more resilient against cybercrime. It saves them money, as they do not have to set up their own IT infrastructure, such as mail servers. A further advantage is disaster recovery which Cloud infrastructure makes possible.
