HERNDON, VA – June, 8, 2017– GuidePoint Security announced today that it has achieved Security Competency Partner status with Amazon Web Services (AWS). This designation recognizes that GuidePoint has demonstrated deep expertise that helps its clients achieve their cloud security goals.

Becoming a Security Competency Partner differentiates GuidePoint as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that provides specialized consulting services designed to help enterprises adopt, develop and deploy complex security projects on AWS. To receive the designation, APN Partners must possess deep expertise and experience on AWS.

AWS Competencies are only awarded to APN partners, like GuidePoint Security, that have demonstrated technical proficiency and proven customer success in specialized solution areas. GuidePoint Security is also an Authorized Government Partner and became an APN Advanced Consulting Partner in 2017.
