WorkPlaceLive is the first hosted desktop provider in the world to gain the new technology industry credential – CompTIA Cloud Trustmark+ ™, which signifies commitment to industry best practices and a high level of customer service

July 10th 2015, Croydon, UK.  Cloud services supplier WorkPlaceLive announced today it is the first hosted desktop provider in the world to receive the CompTIA Cloud Trustmark+™, a new and respected industry credential focusing on adherence to best practices for technology service delivery and customer interaction.

“Earning this credential identifies WorkPlaceLive as a business that meets or exceeds the best business practices the IT industry has to offer,” said Nancy Hammervik, senior vice president, industry relations, CompTIA.

The Trustmark was developed by CompTIA, the non-profit association for the information technology industry, in collaboration with industry experts and leaders, to identify businesses that have made a commitment to the highest levels of integrity and sustained quality service. The Trustmark is designed specifically for technology vendors offering cloud solutions through IT service providers.

Joseph Blass, WorkPlaceLive CEO, commented, “Gaining Trustmark+ is further recognition of the high standards we set ourselves and our commitment to be ‘best of breed’ cloud services provider. Being the first hosted desktop provider globally with Trustmark+ is gratifying and echoes our gaining ISO 27001 accreditation in 2012, when WorkPlaceLive was in only the one per cent of companies in the UK with that credential.

“ISO 27001 is all about high standards in information security management. Trustmark+ has helped us broaden and deepen the quality that runs right through WorkPlaceLive.”

To earn the CompTIA Cloud Trustmark+, the company was evaluated on the internal practices and procedures it uses to run its business, and the external activities and operations it engages in with customers and channel partners.
