The Association of Charitable Organisations (ACO) partners with Softwerx, the UK’s leading Microsoft Cloud Security Specialist.

Softwerx has worked with a number of the of the leading Charities in the UK for many years - including the YMCA, Kidney Research and Papworth Trust and the RAF Benevolent Fund. They understand the very specific and different needs of the charitable sector, not only from a commercial perspective, but also from an operational perspective – around governance, risk, compliance – and of course cyber security.

Softwerx is the UK’s leading Microsoft Cloud Security specialist and promotes a ‘Microsoft First’ approach for Security and Compliance. In simple terms, this means before you consider spending additional or significant sums on alternate third-party security products or solutions (called double-spending), consider what you already have in place with your existing Microsoft Subscription. By better understanding this – and therefore better leveraging Microsoft technology, functionality and features – you can not only realise significant savings, but also achieve significant security (and productivity) gains.

David Smart, CEO of Softwerx says “We’re thrilled to be supporting the ACO, not at least because we know we can help charities effectively navigate the minefield of security risk and prevention, but also and in the current climate, because now more than ever, charities need to ensure that any funds allocated toward IT and Security solutions are spent more wisely.”

Over the next twelve months Softwerx will be offering an exclusive array of technical workshops, webinars, technology updates and commercial benefits to ACO members, designed specifically for members. To start with, all ACO members will be eligible for a free ‘Microsoft Discovery Workshop’ (normally charged at £1,500), whereby a qualified Microsoft Solutions Architect will work with your team to understand the organisational challenges and explain the ‘art of what is now possible’, from a Microsoft perspective. By engaging with Softwerx, ACO Members will get a valuable and exclusive insight, and inside track to everything Microsoft, from one of the UK’s leading Microsoft Gold Partners.
