The color silver symbolizes glamor and distinction. This year, the color silver symbolizes accomplishment for those of us at Townsend. We have recently obtained Silver Business Partner status in Microsoft’s business partner program and the company just celebrated its 25th Silver anniversary.
Earlier this month we announced that we became a silver level business intelligence partner with Microsoft. This new alliance will help us with the launch of our encryption key management solution for Microsoft SQL Server 2008, later this quarter. We just returned from Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference where we met with several different partners about this opportunity. We talked with many companies who had similar interests in compliance and data protection, it was a great introduction into a new community that is very important to us.
July 14, 2011 marked Townsend’s silver anniversary – what a milestone! We owe this accomplishment to our customers, partners and our dedicated team. The company has evolved a lot over the last 25 years; we have undergone a few name changes (Patrick Townsend & Associates, Patrick Townsend Security Solutions and now Townsend Security) and a few different logos. Our name and our look may have changed over the years, however, our mission and vision have remained the same - Townsend Security creates, sells and supports professional encryption solutions that protect data and simplify compliance.
The solutions we have introduced into the market over the years, AES Encryption, FTP Manager, Key Manager, LogAgent, XML/400 and TokenManager align with our vision. Our commitment to provide world-class support to our hundreds of customers worldwide will always be our number one priority. And we are proud to say that a few members of the Townsend team have been with the company for over 10 years and several more are quickly approaching their 10 year anniversary, not many companies can say that in today’s economy. As we pour that glass of bubbly and toast our silver anniversary we will be sure to thank our customers, partners and ourselves for an incredible 25 year run and set our sights on the next 25 years. I can’t wait to see what it holds!
