Quali Announces Expansive Microsoft Partnership Through Co-Sell Program

CloudShell Available on Microsoft Marketplace, Assisting Organizations with Proof of Concepts and Accelerating their Sales/Providing a scalable path to application transformation

SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/-- Quali, the leader in delivering cloud-agnostic Environment as a Service (EaaS) solutions for dev/test, sales demo/POC, and DevOps, today announced an expansive partnership with Microsoft by being named a Microsoft Prioritized Co-Sell Partner. The Co-Sell global program was created for ISVs to work together with Microsoft account executives on joint customer opportunities. This partnership accelerates sales for the target ISV companies by deploying on-demand, self-service environments for pre-sales proof of concepts (POC) running on Azure. It also provides a path for companies to transform their applications to the public cloud.

"We are very excited to have Microsoft join our strategic partner ecosystem and look forward to this collaboration to continue winning business together," said Lior Koriat, CEO at Quali." Quali's Environment as a Service solutions are very complimentary to Azure's service offerings. It helps companies maximize infrastructure consumption efficiency for their Demo as a Service and DevOps needs."

One company leveraging this new expansive partnership is Skybox Security, a global leader in cyber risk management. Skybox Security adopted Quali's EaaS for its POVs (proof of value) to show customers how Skybox technology works on their own network. Through this project, Skybox developed environment blueprints published in a self-service portal powered by Quali CloudShell Pro to create Azure cloud environments.

"If I wanted to install Skybox in a customer's environment on premises for a POV, I needed their IT and security involved," said Ami Ben-Dror, Chief Information Officer at Skybox Security. "With Quali, we can do this in Azure with the customer's permission. That translates to days instead of weeks."
