We’re delighted to announce that we have become the first UK Citrix partner to achieve the new Citrix Networking Specialist accreditation, a full six months ahead of the revised criteria coming in to place in January 2021.
Designed as a way to distinguish the vendor’s most technically and commercially competent partners, the accreditation comprises of a series of mechanisms that allow partners to demonstrate their superior technical expertise, end to end sales capability and service delivery with high customer satisfaction.

Rising to the challenge
We knew how much effort it took to achieve the current Networking for Data Centre Specialist accreditation which we completed back in 2015 so we expected a challenge when our Co-founders learned of the new requirements at Citrix Summit, the vendor’s annual global partner gathering in Orlando, January 2020. New for the 2021 award, the validation probes further into the partner capability, so it’s been a real team effort that covered every aspect of the customer journey from the first enquiry to the successful delivery of some truly amazing global projects.
Speaking of the achievement, Jo Wright, Co-founder & CEO commented;
“We’re often working at the bleeding edge of what’s technically possible and invest heavily in our skill set to ensure that we retain our value to our growing customer base. Being the first in the UK and one of the first globally to gain the new certification is testament to the commitment, knowledge and capability of our fantastic team.”
The complete Citrix Cloud Networking portfolio
Above all, the Citrix Networking Specialist Partner accreditation provides vendor validation of our ability to deliver the complete Citrix Cloud Networking portfolio including Citrix ADC (NetScaler), Citrix ADM and Citrix SD-WAN in even the most demanding scenarios.
“Many organisations have learnt the hard way that old school network architectures and principles are simply no longer fit for purpose. The success of those embarking on digital transformation projects or otherwise scaling online services in a hybrid cloud world depends secure, reliable network connectivity. Citrix offer the most comprehensive cloud networking portfolio in the industry so I’m really pleased the hard work of our amazing team has enabled cloudDNA to once again be recognised as a leader in the ability to deliver all that the product set has to offer.” Al Taylor, Co-founder & CTO.
”Being able to articulate, demonstrate and deliver the true value of Citrix Cloud Networking solutions, across a broad spectrum of hybrid multi cloud use cases requires highly specialist knowledge and expertise.
Our specialist program is designed to help customers identify Citrix partners who have this level of understanding so it gives me great pleasure to congratulate the team at cloudDNA on becoming our first partner in the UK to achieve the 2021 Citrix Networking Specialist Partner accreditation.
Together, Citrix and cloudDNA will continue to deliver innovative projects that enable our mutual customers to provide secure, reliable connectivity for their own digital transformations powered by Citrix Cloud Networking. An exciting time for our partnership and our customers.Darren FieldsVice President, Networking EMEA at Citrix
