Cbeyond Achieves Cisco Master Service Provider Certification

ATLANTA, Aug. 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cbeyond, Inc. (Nasdaq:CBEY), the technology ally for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), announced today that it has achieved the Cisco ® Master Service Provider Certification for cloud and managed services. This certification recognizes Cbeyond as having the capabilities to sell and deliver cloud and managed services to help accelerate time to market and time to revenue. Additionally, the certification rewards partners for their expertise and investments for creating, selling and delivering cloud and managed services with financial incentives and go-to-market benefits in all countries of legal presence.

"Obtaining Cisco Master Service Provider partner status marks yet another significant milestone for Cbeyond," said Paul Gies, vice president, business development at Cbeyond. "The certification is further validation of the powerful combination of our cloud product offerings and the Cisco hardware platform. This combination allows small and mid-sized companies to now utilize the cloud to run their businesses just as efficiently as much larger enterprise companies."

The Cisco Master Service Provider Certification is part of the Cisco Cloud and Managed Services Program, focused on helping partners such as Cbeyond to envision, build, market, and sell cloud and managed services with business acceleration tools and services, sales training and the Cisco Cloud Marketplace to address the varied needs of its customers. As a Cisco Master Service Provider Certified Partner, Cbeyond will sell and deliver at least two Cisco Powered services (managed and/or cloud services with Cisco Powered services designations), built on the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) framework, and provide enhanced management and stewardship practices to its customers.

In addition, Cbeyond has achieved Cisco Powered services designations in Cloud Services, Cloud Service for Infrastructure as a Service, Managed Services, MPLS VPN, Metro Ethernet, Managed Services Internet Service, and Managed IP Trunking.

Cisco Powered services allow customers to connect with confidence to achieve faster time to value by minimizing technology lifecycle complexity to reduce cost and risk. Customers also experience assured performance through superior service, security, and 24/7 support from Cisco (Nasdaq:CSCO) and its certified partners while taking advantage of continuous innovation based on open standards and Cisco's extensive R&D investment.
