Claranet named in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Data Center Outsourcing and Hybrid Infrastructure Managed Services, Europe for second year

Claranet has been positioned in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for “Data Center Outsourcing and Hybrid Infrastructure Managed Services, Europe” (DCO/HIMS), for the second successive year.

In this Magic Quadrant, Gartner analyses the ability to execute and completeness of vision of 20 DCO/HIMS providers and their cloud service offerings, worth more than $23 billion in annual revenue in Europe. We believe this reflects the steps that Claranet is taking to provide the right combination of services to help businesses transform their operations, stay secure, and quickly adapt to changing customer needs.

Commenting on the company’s placement in the Magic Quadrant, Charles Nasser, CEO of Claranet, said:

We are very pleased to be recognised in this 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for the second year in a row and believe this underlines the progress we have made in growing our business. We have invested heavily in hiring the best expertise and use automation to transform our customers’ operations."

Over the last year we have also continued to broaden our skills in cybersecurity, encapsulated by our acquisition of global penetration testing and ethical hacking training experts NotSoSecure in July 2018. Since then, we have consolidated our security expertise by forming the Claranet Cyber Security unit. This has been coupled with sustained activity to further build our existing partnerships and closely integrate our hybrid cloud, cybersecurity, and network services."

We are committed to our status as one of only five companies in the world that has the highest audited MSP certifications from AWS, Google, and Microsoft. This highlights the depth and breadth of our expertise that is instrumental in driving the growth of our hybrid cloud practice and delivering superior results for our customers,” he continued."

The Gartner Magic Quadrant assessment offers in-depth reviews of markets and vendor offerings, enabling users to map vendor strengths and weaknesses against their current and future needs. Gartner evaluates technology providers on both completeness of vision and the ability to execute using a series of weighted criteria.

Nasser concluded:

“Our mission is to help organisations make the most of current and emerging technologies and practices, by providing unmatched expert local service. Our aim is to offer a different way of data centre outsourcing that supports our customers as their requirements evolve. It’s also about the calibre of our people that ensures our customers experience efficient, trouble-free migrations and the right ongoing management of their applications."
