Nextlink joins AWS Security Competency Partner Program

AWS Security Competency Program

Nextlink is verified by AWS to be one of the APN Partners to join the AWS Security Competency Program in November 2021.

“We are honored to become an AWS Security Competency Partner. We are proud to say that Nextlink has proved to have the deep technical expertise and customer success experience to help customers to secure every stage of their cloud adoption,” said Elsa Im, Vice President of Nextlink Hong Kong. Security is the foundation of all business activities, and “job zero” at Nextlink. Nextlink strives to deliver the necessary security-focused solutions for different specific workloads and use cases.

Nextlink Hong Kong supported Plaza Premium, a leader in airport hospitality services, to deploy a point-in-time assessment and gain valuable insights into the security posture of their AWS accounts. Nextlink also assisted Plaza Premium to build a security network which complies with the strict industry standards, while elevating the ability to identify critical security controls and protect digital assets against ransomware. 

Nextlink Hong Kong also helped another customer, an Asian equity-focused, hedge fund platform to safeguard their digital assets from various cyber threats, from phishing attacks to data breaches. Nextlink supported this customer to build a zero-trust security model, which establishes a governance baseline for resource configuration policies and offers best practices across teams in a scalable and automated way.

The scalability, security, stability, and cost performance of AWS services are the key reasons that organizations choose to partner with AWS. Nextlink delivers AWS security solutions, including Threat Detection and Monitoring, Data Protection, for different level and scale of cloud adoption. Users of AWS can also be assured that AWS supports the most comprehensive security compliance, standards, and certifications. 

Nextlink also works with third-party security solution providers, including Fortinet, Checkpoint, and Radware, to deliver custom solutions for different client requirements. As an AWS Security Competency Partner, and a Premier Consultant Partner, Nextlink will continue to help customers succeed with AWS solutions and enable our customers to focus on strategic planning and innovation.
