George Town, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands — July 13, 2020 — SALT Technology Group (SALT) today announced it has won Partner of the Year Cayman Islands 2020 Microsoft Partner of the Year Award. The company was honored among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.

Founder of SALT, Blair Lilford remarked, “I could not be prouder of my team. This has been a phenomenal year of growth, and winning Partner of the Year for our Azure Stack solution validates all our hard work. We believe Azure Stack is the future of cloud in the Caribbean because it overcomes the technological limitations of the region through top-tier enterprise-grade solutions”

Mr. Lilford also provided the following excerpt from the award submission, “Offering solutions that future-proof our client’s IT environments is a driving force for our company. Our mission is to be at the forefront of innovation and break boundaries that limit technological growth in the regions we operate in; Azure Stack, does just that. The resistance to cloud in the Cayman Islands stems most often from the need for data sovereignty, followed by security, compliance, and reliability concerns. Our Azure Stack offer can guarantee data sovereignty, address low latency and connectivity concerns, all while exercising Microsoft’s top security and compliance protocols. Our clients also have the freedom to seamlessly extend data and applications to Microsoft Azure public cloud for any of their unregulated data, non-critical applications, or as part of their disaster recovery efforts and business continuity plan.”
