Accreditation demonstrates Insight’s deep knowledge, extensive experience, and proven success in deploying, optimising, and securing virtual desktop infrastructure on Azure with Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop.


London, UK, January, 2021 – Insight Enterprises (NASDAQ: NSIT), the global integrator of Insight Intelligent Technology Solutions™, has today announced it has secured the Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop Advanced Specialisation.

This status, which applies to Insight’s business across EMEA, demonstrates Insight’s deep knowledge, extensive experience and expertise in deploying, scaling and securing virtual desktop infrastructure on Azure.

Only partners that meet stringent criteria around clients success and staff skilling, as well as pass a third-party audit of their Windows Virtual Desktop technical practices, are able to earn the Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop advanced specialisation.

Supporting secure remote work for employees is more critical than ever. Windows Virtual Desktop is a Microsoft solution that seamlessly integrates with other Microsoft products and allows clients to implement virtual desktops in a scalable, secure, and cost-effective way.

“Our clients and the challenges they face remain at the heart of everything we do. This Microsoft accreditation builds on our reputation within the industry as an organisation dedicated to helping our clients build business resilience, every step of the way,” said Manuel Escriva, EMEA Director Vendor Alliance, Insight. “Clients can be assured that we have real world proficiency and resources to deploy Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop, delivering an exceptional experience. It further supports the recent launch of our portfolio of Windows Virtual Desktop solutions, designed to help clients through secure remote work scenarios and providing cost savings.”

Partners with validated capabilities in implementing Windows Virtual Desktop can help clients deploy and navigate the licensing efficiencies it offers to deliver the solution that is most efficient for their organisation.

Gavriella Schuster, Corporate Vice President, One Commercial Partner (OCP) at Microsoft Corp., added, “The Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop advanced specialisation highlights the partners who can be viewed as most capable when it comes to deploying Windows Virtual Desktop in Azure. Insight clearly demonstrated that they have both the skills and the experience to offer clients a path to transition to desktop-as-a-service in a scalable, secure, and cost-effective way.”
