Cape Town, 07 Dec 2022

Deimos, the cloud technology and professional services company, today announced it has achieved the first Google Cloud Security specialisations in Africa. By earning the Security specialisation, Deimos has proven its expertise and success in building customer security solutions using Google Cloud technology.

Partners with this specialisation have demonstrated significant success in securing customer infrastructure and workflows on Google Cloud. The specialisation is the result of an expert-led assessment process that determines if a partner is a specialist in a specific field. Deimos spent 24 months putting together the body of evidence in the form of documented security projects and team certifications to prove its specialist cloud security expertise. After two intensive audits by security experts appointed by Google Cloud in October 2022, Deimos received one of Africa’s first Google Cloud Security specialisations.

Speaking on the achievement, Andrew Mori, CEO, and Co-founder at Deimos stated, “We are incredibly proud to achieve one of the first Google Security specialisations in Africa. Acquiring this specialisation is evidence of Deimos’ expertise in providing cutting-edge cloud security infrastructure solutions for both micro-enterprise and enterprise clients.

This badge goes a long way to reinforce our position in the market in areas that make a significant difference to companies’ operations and infrastructure. Deimos will continue to strive for high standards with Google Cloud to ensure safety and security for businesses and institutions in Africa.”

“This recognition from Google Cloud also marks a new stage in our company’s growth and opens us up for further expansion across more African countries,” Mori said.
